Applicants to this program are eligible for the following scholarships and grants:

  • John E. Bowman Travel Grants

For students whose school is billed for all fees, the award will be released within four weeks of award notification.

  • CIEE International Study Programs (CIEE-ISP) Scholarships

study abroad in United Arab Emirates

Excursions

Every semester you’ll go on excursions that illuminate your understanding of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). You may go on a trip to Al Ain Oasis, known for its underground irrigation system, visit a camel market, and watch robotic jockeys race. Dubai, Al Ain, and Abu Dhabi, where you can see the largest mosque in the UAE (Sheikh Zayed Mosque), are also possibilities. Tour Masdar City, which will eventually rely solely on solar energy and other renewable resources for power. Even travel to the neighboring country of Oman, a stark contrast to the Islamic and conservative nature of the Gulf region.

Immersion

We make it easy to integrate into the local and university communities and learn firsthand about Emirati culture. Live in a residence hall with local and international students, join a student club (or two), or volunteer – you can do it all!

About the City

About The City

The Emirate of Sharjah, with a population of approximately 680,000, is located next to the Emirate of Dubai. It prides itself as the “cultural capital” of the UAE and offers a range of museums, traditional souks (markets), and theaters. Sharjah was lately named the Capital of Islamic Culture for 2014 in recognition of its remarkable contributions in preserving, promoting and disseminating culture at local, Arab and Islamic levels. Although Sharjah developed rapidly under British rule in the 19th century, it has maintained its traditional Muslim values while developing its regional trade relationships. Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammad al-Qassimi has ruled Sharjah since 1972. A mere 40 minutes from the center of Dubai and its high-paced, cosmopolitan lifestyle, Sharjah provides a comfortable and relatively quiet environment for exploring Gulf culture.

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Sharjah even before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online pre-departure orientation. The resident director meets with students online and shares information about the program and site, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. The online orientation allows you to connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. CIEE’s aim for the pre-departure orientation is simple: to help you understand more about the program and identify your goals.
