DUBAI - Education specialists will provide advice on how to succeed in obtaining a place in top international universities at an upcoming workshop.

For the first time in the Emirates, British education groups — Intelligent Gulf and ISIS — have established a two stage workshop.

Stage One of the programme will be rolled out in Dubai from April 10 to 12 at Knowledge Village.

Stage Two of the programme — the residential World University Preparation Course — rolls out at Corpus Christi College, University of Cambridge from June 27 to July 18.

Students who wish to apply to some of the prestigious colleges in the United Kingdom and the north America will be given three days of intensive tuition to guide them in their choice of universities and get expert advice.

The workshop is designed to assist students with admissions to the Oxbridge/Ivy league known for its academic excellence and selectivity in admissions.

Elizabeth Rickards, course director and a former principal of Davies Laing and Dick College in London is described by the Independent Schools Inspectorate as an ‘outstanding principal.’

Dr Jon Tabbert, a specialist in US education based in London has spent many years advising on American university placement.

Claire Davies has spent 20 years as deputy head and head of the sixth form in the UK sorting out university applications and running a successful Oxbridge Entrance programme.

The first two days of the programme will cover the important ground of which universities to choose and why.

Parents will get an opportunity to meet the advisors on the third day of the workshop.

They will be given feedback on their wards’ test results and recommendations will be made about their university applications.

Seminars will cover a wide range of topics such as what international qualifications are acceptable for which universities; the differences between US and UK degrees and how the applications process works on both sides of the Atlantic; how to select the best Oxbridge college to improve your chances of being made an offer, and what students should do as preparations. Students will also take assessment tests.
