For Students

Greetings from the Cultural Division in Washington, DC!  Welcome to the United States.

The UAE Embassy extends its warmest greetings to the hundreds of UAE students who are in the United States in pursuit of higher education and professional training. The Embassy, through the Cultural Division, provides several services to assist each student in navigating his/her path to academic success.

The Cultural Division’s website contains information and guidance regarding topics of interest for new and continuing UAE students including general procedures and requirements relevant to student scholarships, financial benefits, and health coverage. We also provide information on US immigration regulations, accreditation, authentication, US institutions and programs approved by the Ministry Education and other useful information.

Transitioning to life and study in a foreign country is not easy, but remember that UAE students are not alone. The UAE Embassy will help ensure that time spent studying in the United States is rewarding and successful, both personally and academically.

If you are a UAE citizen studying in the United States, but are not sponsored by any governmental department or private agency, and would like the Embassy to keep in touch with you through the Cultural Division, we advise you to complete the Private Student Registration Form. The Cultural Division retains your information in order to better assist you in the event of an emergency and obtain a travel document to the UAE. As an academic resource, we will authenticate your documents and advise you on the accreditation of an institution or a program.
