The Dubai College of Tourism (DCT) has unveiled a new scholarship for UAE citizens and residents for its courses.
The specially curated scholarship scheme is applicable for students who enrol before Eid Al-Adha in the hospitality, tourism and events Level 4 certificate programmes.
With major upcoming projects, new and easy visa processes and major brands from around the world ready to invest in Dubai, tourism is booming in the city. In 2022, the emirate’s tourism sector contributed $29.4 billion to its economy, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). It is thought that the industry will play a huge role in realising the Dubai Economic Agenda D33’s goal of doubling the city’s economy in the next 10 years.
Those wishing to apply for the scholarship must complete the DCT application form on their website before Eid Al Adha on June 28th, 2023.
To be eligible, the student must pass an entrance exam and attend an interview to confirm eligibility for a scholarship.
The admission screening process requires students to have completed a minimum of 70 per cent in secondary education, passed the English and Math assessments, and successfully completed the interview process. They will then be eligible to apply for the limited number of scholarships available.
Scholarships are offered for DCT programmes in Hospitality, Events and Tourism only.
