There are local universities and world-renowned universities within the capital that opens its doors to students from all over the Emirates and the world. Student life is as diverse as expats in the capitals workplaces because they mingle with people from all walks of life. International students flock to the UAE yearly to pursue their dreams and eventually settle in the city as well.

Abu Dhabi is an international city, and in most workplaces, you will interact and work with people of different nationalities.
