UAE Student Visas

The UAE is an incredibly popular study abroad destination, and Dubai itself is a city of boundless opportunity for both students and inquisitive travellers. Strategically suspended between the exotic east and the bustling west, the city offers elements of both, as exemplified by its ultra-modern conveniences and high-rise skyscraper skyline standing alongside the motifs and treasures of its rich Arab-Islamic history and culture.

Dubai is an advanced 21st-century city which promotes innovation and offers an atmosphere which encourages experiential learning, creativity and independence. International relations, engineering, tourism, design, business administration and architecture are just some of the many subjects and educational disciplines which can be followed on campus in Dubai. Perhaps even more appealing in this cosmopolitan environment, is the chance to meet and learn from a multicultural student population. Drawn from every corner of the globe, and the product of many different higher education systems, Indian, French, Canadian, British, Australian, and American students mingle with those from the United Arab Emirates on every campus right across the region. 

If you have chosen to study in the UAE, you’ve got to ensure that everything from your student visa to enrolment in your programme of study has been properly arranged. 

Finding the right school in the UAE 

Finding a school can be challenging even if you have already decided upon the discipline that you would like to study in the UAE. With a choice of over 50 international and UAE universities and colleges, making sure that you select the most suitable institution for your needs is still no small matter. To help you make the most of this opportunity, our professional consultants at Brighter Candidates can advise and assist you in selecting the most appropriate UAE school. Through our network of professional education contacts across the country, we can offer you personalised expert advice to help you make this important decision.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
