International university students have shown interest to study in Dubai after learning they can hold paid part-time jobs in, Dubai campuses by international universities.
Their comments came on the sidelines of the 29th Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (Getex), running until Saturday at Dubai World Trade Centre. Last October, it was announced that university students in Dubai could legally hold paid part-time jobs in thousands of companies in nine Dubai free zone clusters.
Dubai campuses of international universities participating at Getex told Gulf News that they have received greater interest from overseas students because of the new regulation.
New regulation announced by Dubai Creative Clusters Authority (DCCA) in 2016 grants part-time work permit to some 25,000 students mostly enrolled at around two dozen academic institutions licensed by DCCA, primarily located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) and Dubai Knowledge Park. This is in addition to government universities.
The new regulation is being implemented with the support of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
It enables 4,500 businesses in the emirate’s nine creative clusters, such as Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, and Dubai Studio City, to offer part-time employment to university students. The clusters include also include Dubai Knowledge Park, Dubai International Academic City, Dubai Production City, Dubai Science Park and Dubai Design District.
Students must be in good academic standing and, generally, in their second year of university.
A central clearing system, like an online marketplace, will connect employers with student workers, after checks of eligibility.
Students right to pay will be guaranteed. Work hours will be limited to prevent impact on studies.
