Canadian University Dubai (CUD) attracted record numbers to its annual Fall semester Open House events, which were attended by over 150 students accompanied by their parents and family members.
Attendees were given the opportunity to learn more about CUD’s newest program offerings in Business Administration, Psychology and Engineering, as well as existing programs in Public Health, Health Sciences, Computing, Architecture, Interior Design and Communications. The Open House also received a number of inquiries regarding graduate programs.
At the September 5th Open House, Dr. Julie Beeton, Assistant Professor and Canadian Immigration Lawyer, gave a presentation to students interested in transferring to Canada, explaining the visa and entry requirements, as well as giving an overall impression of life in Canada.
The benefit of such Open House events is that they provide students and parents with the resources they need to make an informed decision; they can have all of their questions answered at one time, in one place.
For high school students about to pursue their undergraduate studies, finding the right university to fit their budget and their future career goals is a key factor in making the right choice. The same holds true for transfer students who might realize two weeks into semester at a new university that other choices may be still available to them. Open Houses give students answers to questions about which school is right for them. CUD regularly hosts such events throughout the year.
Resources available to high school students and potential transfer students at the Fall Open Houses this year included admissions, financial information, orientation and transfer to CUD options. The event was a huge success and the University received a substantial number of registrations during the evening and in the subsequent days.
