illegal university in Dubai deceives students

Class is going on in a classroom of illegal Shiraz University
DUBAI , (UAE): An unlicensed and illegal university have deceived hundreds of students who hailed from Iran. After the illegal operations came to light, students have been told to either transfer to its home campus in Iran or find another Iranian school in Dubai.

The name of the illegal institution is Shiraz University which had been operating for a year on the premises of the Canadian International College in Knowledge Village, which also had no permit from the education regulator, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority. Shiraz had been offering courses from bachelor’s up to PhD.

Students are now being advised to look at other institutions. But unfortunately, the only available alternative is the Islamic Azad university, also in Knowledge Village. Asma Dalmook, heads of permits and regulations at the KHDA, said: “We have informed Shiraz University that they do not have permission to continue operations in Dubai and to find alternatives for the students currently registered. We have provided options for their students to choose from.”

Students have been warned to research their chosen institutions before beginning their studies.

Dr Ayoub Kazim, managing director of TECOM Investments’ Education Cluster, which comprises DKV and Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), said in a statement: “When we became aware that Canadian International College [CIC] was also acting as host for unapproved courses on behalf of Shiraz University, we immediately referred the matter to the KHDA.”

“We are currently in discussions with the KHDA about the situation and Canada International College is no longer located in Dubai Knowledge Village.”

Why You Should Not Opt For IIT Bombay

This article is written by IITians in theblog








If asked to compare IIT Bombay to IIT Delhi, most students say that the difference is negligible. Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi. But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub.
