Living and accommodation costs

The location a student chooses will directly affect the cost of living in the UAE. Most universities and colleges are in major cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, where rent and cost of living are slightly higher than other destinations across the small nation. In these settings, rent can be approximately 2000 to 2500 AED per month.

Other things to consider when living in the UAE are day-to-day expenses, such as shopping, nightlife, alcohol, and restaurants. These tend to be pretty average, with the exception of alcohol, which comes at a higher cost due to the UAE’s religious culture.
