UAE University Admission Requirement's Eased for Students

The UAE announced it will relax Admissions Conditions on the Equivalency of Secondary School Certificates for graduates of the UAE’s private schools and of public and private schools outside the country. Students who obtain “Letter of No Objection to be Conditionally Admitted” are exempted from EmSAT requirements for the purpose of equivalency and from passing the bridging courses.

This is applicable only in the case that the student successfully completes one academic year, which in turn allows the relevant higher education institution to grant the student final admission.

Conditions

According to the circular, in the case of Admission Conditional on Equivalency of Secondary School Certificate, the higher education institution may grant the student final admission if the student provides equivalency issued by the MoE for the Secondary School Certificate, passed the bridging courses specified in the “Letter of No Objection to be Conditionally Admitted” issued by the MoE, or passes at least twenty-four (24) credit hours (one academic year) in the major they are enrolled in.

In cases where the student does not fulfill any of the conditions by the end of the Conditional Admission Period, the higher education institution may cancel the Conditional Admission, or extend the Conditional Admission Period for one semester only beyond the end of the period stipulated in the “Letter of No Objection to be Conditionally Admitted” issued by the MoE.
