Smile Complete a Degree or apprenticeship ?

Hi

We will be moving to Dubai next year after my son has completed his A levels. My husband works out in Dubai currently. I don't seem to be seeing any higher level apprenticeships in Dubai which is what he wants to do. Any undergraduate schemes on offer that I might be missing ? His A Levels are maths, law and compute science and is has no idea what job he is aiming for currently.

Would it be wiser for him to complete a degree out in Dubai ?

If anyone can point me in the right direction ?

We are in the UK currently.

Hi,
My advice - do apprentiship or degree in the UK.
You went get the equivalent of either in Dubai.
Cheers
Steve

Degrees in Dubai are not remotely close to UK degrees in quality.

The 'top' UAE university is over 400th in ranking compared with Uk ones less than 50, or even top 10 in several cases.

He should stay in the Uk and do a Degree there or an apprenticeship which leads to a degree.
