I have a rich and constructive experience as I learnt to be independent learner or even a researcher...

I am very happy to tell everybody about my experience at the British University in Dubai. I have a rich and constructive experience as I learnt to be independent learner or even a researcher. I was guided by many knowledgeable and professional doctors especially Dr. Yasemin who supervised my dissertation. In addition, all the staff including the registration, IT and the library teams are helpful and cooperative at BUiD. I am grateful to this University and its staff and I wish them all success.

Sinan Al Sheikh, IBM Consultant

When I joined BUiD, I joined as a fellowship student. I had all the time needed to study and innovate freely in the university...

During my first semester in the university I was interviewed by IBM. I was one of a very few lucky people who were selected to be enrolled in an intensive graduate trainee course in IBM to be prepared for an IT Consultant role in the company. At that time I had to choose whether to complete my studies or to start a new career with IBM.I needed advice from someone who is wise and experienced to help me take one of my life time decisions.

I found that person inside BUiD who had lived through a similar situation in the past. He was one of my professors who encouraged me to purse my dream even if it was on both tracks. He kept motivating and supporting me even after working hours and during his weekends. Dr.Khaled was more than just a professor for me, and without his words and continuous support I wouldn't have made it to the finish line and submit my thesis at the end to graduate a Masters degree.

BUiD as research based institute has changed my thinking strategy dramatically. A wide range of academic knowledge and professional competencies acquired during my study.

Amer Adway, Masters in Education - TESOL, Year 2013

For my higher education I was looking for a place that would expose me to a great mix of quality education and culture. That is when I came across BUiD. All of these factors were reaffirmed when I started my TESOL studies there. My time in BUiD has allowed me to be developed professionally and my education has helped me stay updated at work.

Iryna Akulenka, MSc Construction Law and Dispute Resolution 
Project Manager, WS Atkins & Partners Overseas

Having finally received my MSc Degree 2 months ago, after 2 long years, came as an immense relief as studying part time and working full time was I think the toughest part of the process. Difficulties aside, I truly enjoyed the experience. The Knowledge had been great; it opened up so many new doors for me in terms of professional development and future career. I have met wonderful people, true construction professionals willing to share their knowledge and expertise with others around them.

The most memorable part I think was our short trip to Oxford in fall 2012 organized by BUiD. It was fun! I truly enjoyed meeting our fellow students from Kings, debating, sharing knowledge and attending lectures, and just walking the streets of this amazing city with outstanding architecture and urban design! 

Overall, am overwhelmed by this achievement; my husband, my family in Belarus and my professors who taught me during my BEng years are all so proud, and to me it is the most valuable feeling in the whole world. 

Taher Salah Eldananf, MSc Sustainable Design of Built Environment, Year 2013

The University was always aware of the market demands therefore, they always provided us with the possibility of interacting with experts in our field. To conclude, the unforgettable memories have added great value to my career in specific, and my life in general.
