The students were selected on the basis of talent and academic performance.

"The municipality is delighted to sponsor these students, and this type of initiative provides an ideal opportunity for students to intensively study English in a real-world setting and prepares them for their future performance in the workplace," said Hamoud Humaid Al Mansouri, Director-General of the municipality.

"We hope this kind of supplementary training will enable students to contribute positively to the Western Region's growing economy and industry," he added.

Selected students will receive four weeks of intensive English language training at Euro-centres's Lee Green London Campus, a worldwide network that creates personalised and innovative methods of teaching languages and provides a high standard of courses at well-equipped quality schools.

These students will complete their courses along with all necessary curriculum or tutorials in advance of beginning their four-week work placement with selected London businesses.

The courses and programmes designed for this student group by Euro-centres will allow the students to gain a more thorough understanding of British culture while providing them with the opportunity to use English language within the context of their assigned work place and everyday activities.
