United Kingdom's University of Bolton, in Greater Manchester, has an excellent start with its new campus in Ras al Khaimah, UAE (United Arab Emirates). The campus offers a broad range of the University's undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Built Environment, Engineering, Business and Computing/Information Technology.
Located in the heart of a booming Middle East, Ras al Khaimah attracts tremendous inward investment as it welcomes people and organisations from across the globe. It is therefore paramount that such growth is complemented with life opportunities for education and training.
University of Bolton RAK offers a wide range of courses in a variety of subject areas on full and part time basis which will support professional development. Many of courses start in September and February.
Module delivery at the RAK Campus utilises the curriculum and expertise developed by the University and assessments are quality controlled by leading academics based at the University and also appointed as external examiners.
The RAK Campus development has enabled considerable staff and student exchange and indeed there is a clear route to complete a part of studies at the UK Campus. In addition the Off Campus team works with the operations team at the RAK Campus and arranges an annual Study Visit to the UK where RAK students spend around three weeks (normally after Ramadan) during the summer period receiving academic, cultural and language development opportunities.
All staff at the University and at the University of Bolton, RAK campus engage with development and monitoring from the academics based at the UK campus. University of Bolton, Ras al Khaimah campus aims to provide higher education using the ethos, environment and processes devised and controlled by the main campus in the United Kingdom. The RAK campus students are a part of the University of Bolton's student community and enjoy the same privileges as other Off Campus students at the University.
