Under the patronage of Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE's Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, the Global Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX) will once again open doors, featuring the largest higher education and specialised training showcase ever seen in the Middle East. Every year, more than 25,000 local and expat students who are at the threshold of college life and are actively looking to find a university or training institute of their choice attend GETEX, and this year will be no exception.

On-the-spot solutions and enrollments

GETEX is the main platform where students can learn about the latest trends in higher education and meet admissions staff face to face from leading schools, colleges and universities participating from around the world. The event will offer students all the necessary tools and information to compare university rankings, fee structures, admission timelines and scholarship opportunities, all under one roof. The direct, in-person interaction that students and their parents are able to establish with global institutes at GETEX enables them to get quick answers to their questions, make on-the-spot decisions and submit instant admission applications. Exciting virtual campus tours are also organised for students using Virtual Reality technology, so they can go one step further and truly visualise what their future campus experience will look like.

Global study programmes, all under one roof

Exhibition will offer students pursuing higher education a variety of choices from more than 2,500 study programmes, across all levels including Undergraduate, Post-Graduate, Occupational training as well as specialised certifications. These internationally recognised study options being offered by top ranked global institutions include Business, Finance, Engineering, Arts, Hospitality, Fashion, Medicine, Journalism and many more. A multitude of diverse online and hybrid courses will also be available to students so they can develop new, in-demand skills in R&D, technology, coding, artificial intelligence, and many other areas aligned with their career choices.
