In launching the campus, the university will become the first global top 100 and Russell Group university to establish a campus.

The School of Education staff have been working with Dubai's Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) on the development of teacher education programmes within primary and secondary education.


University of Birmingham Dubai will offer a Postgraduate Certificate in Secondary English Education, a Postgraduate Certificate in Secondary Science Education, a Postgraduate Certificate in Secondary Maths Education, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Education.

The programmes are all designed to meet recognised teacher standards in the UAE and UK, and time is spent in placement schools to develop the necessary experience and skills.

Our high quality provision, judged as Outstanding by Ofsted, will enable us to support and develop excellent teachers in Dubai."
