She said: “Dubai is one of the world’s fastest-growing economic centres and at DMU we have a long history of international collaboration and global influence. This new campus in Dubai is an extension of that global dimension and a way for us to bring the teaching and values we are proud of to a new audience.”

Top job-focused courses for Dubai

When it starts its first academic year in 2021 in the Dubai Campus, the university will launch a range of career-focused programmes, which include DMU Dubai International Year Zero (IYZ) — Foundation programme, BA (Hons) Architecture, BA (Hons) Interior Design, B.Sc. (Hons) Psychology, BA (Hons) Business and Management, BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance, Law LLB (Hons), BSc (Hons) Cyber Security and B Eng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering.
