Being educated in an atmosphere with western standards considering eastern culture brings positive impact on your social skills, not only at the university but also by taking part in various art galleries, shows and workshops held around the city.

While walking through knowledge village, you could see benches along pathways where students use to sit. One is busy with her laptop while another one is doing assignments and others are gathering and talking . “Student life in Dubai is a multicultural life style,” said Ms.Dawood, 23, who has studied business in an American university in Dubai.  “I am interested in movie directory, then professional movie producing workshops held in Abu Dhabi helped me to reach my goals at the same time studying business.”

In contrast, Mr.Ahmad, another international student in knowledge village, most concerns about job.  “There are lots of research based and part time jobs available for students but getting a fulltime job for non Emirati graduates seems difficult,” he mentioned. “Being located near Internet city and Media city brings a mutual reputation for Knowledge Village students,” he added.

Although some students believe that it is difficult to get a job immediately, some universities announce that their graduates are hired in various industries like oil and gas, retail and wholesale trade, bank and financial services or other jobs like hospitality and media.
