UAE's GEMS Education to provide scholarships, financial aid to students
GEMS Education has recently launched the UniConnect Programme, a series of strategic partnerships designed to provide scholarships and financial aid to GEMS students seeking admission to universities both within the region and across the globe, as part of it's commitment to helping families.
Dino Varkey, Chief Executive Officer of GEMS Education, said, "The initiative aims to make access to higher education a realistic choice for all our GEMS graduates. Due to our long standing record of academic excellence, we have been able to form partnerships under the UniConnect Programme which will provide our students with an added advantage. They can apply for specific scholarships, access financial aid and in some instances receive preferred preference at the university and colleges we are partnered with."
The programme offers three levels of partnership to universities and colleges: Platinum, Gold and Silver. Each partnership level provides different relationship opportunities for the institution and for families as well.
Universities across a wide spectrum of countries have been invited to sign up as partners.
GEMS recently announced a partnership with Intelligent Partners, the leading 'study abroad' and university advising consultancy in the Middle East.
The UniConnect will be providing access to partner universities and colleges, and highlight their specific offering to GEMS Students.
Robert Wilson, Consultant on Higher Education Initiatives at GEMS said, "The GEMS vision has always been to work hand in hand with higher education institutions to promote learning, research and professional development on a global scale. UniConnect allows us to offer all of our graduates an advantage with wider entry opportunities into partner universities and colleges."
