STUDY ABROAD: Dubai’s new part-time student work regulation

ABROAD STUDY:ABROAD WORK VISA: Experts hail Dubai law on student part-time work visa. new part-time student work regulation has strengthened the emirate’s reputation as a leading international education hub, experts said.

The regulation is a significant milestone that aligns with the UAE’s Vision 2021, which has articulated the setting up of a competitive knowledge economy. The Student Part-time Work Regulation will ensure a volume of qualified and work-ready young professionals by allowing creative talent to gain critical industry experience to complement their fields of study and increase their employment prospects post-graduation, they felt.

The fifth edition of the Industry and University Partnership Forum (I-UP Forum), hosted by Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) and Dubai Knowledge Park (DKP), gathered leading educators, industry experts and key stakeholders in Dubai to discuss the impact of the new part-time student work regulation issued by  Dubai Creative Clusters Authority (DCCA), including ways to strengthen Dubai’s position as an international education hub to a growing transnational student sector.

The forum, an education dialogue titled “The Part-Time Student Work Policy – Supporting homegrown talent and equipping our youth with the skills to succeed in the workplace”was attended by experts and professionals from universities, industries, and government departments

“Several knowledge hubs in North America and Europe already allow students to work while they study. Not only does this initiative further move Dubai towards becoming a global education powerhouse, it is also proof of the UAE’s commitment to transition into an innovative economy by equipping students with the knowledge and skills needed to develop and succeed.”

The new regulation has been introduced at a time when studies have proven how work enhances the creative and innovative capacities of young people, qualities that are highly valuable to the creative industries. It has also been validated that youth contribution is a key measure in addition to innovation and labor efficiency that impacts a nation’s competitiveness.

“The new regulation has the potential to bring about many economic and societal benefits. What is key, however, is the creation of holistic partnerships and strong synergies between government, businesses, and universities to maximize its success,” said by expert

Prior to the establishment of the part-time work regulation, students in Dubai were unable to secure employment while studying, lacking vital workplace experience and skills needed to keep up with the fast-changing job market. By connecting the higher education and industry sectors, the student experience has been enriched through exposure to real-world experiences such as forming professional relationships at an early stage, ultimately increasing their chances of full-time employment after graduation. Most importantly, part-time work inculcates a sense of responsibility and self-reliance, by providing students with the opportunity to support themselves financially. TradeArabia News Service
