Bachelor Degree in General Requirements
Students applying for admission to all ECT academic programs must be graduates with a UAE Secondary School Certificate, or it’s equivalent, as stated in the admission requirements set in the Ministerial Decrees No. 200/year 2004 and No 133/year 2005.
A) Secondary School Certificate: A certified UAE general secondary school certificate, with a minimum score of 60% or its equivalent is required for admission, according to the regulations of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. However, students with scores of less than 60% can study in the Foundation program and should pass 5 courses namely, Arabic Language, IT, Mathematics, Study Skills, and English Communication, along with a TOEFL score of 500 or equivalent before they study academic courses. Students with Industrial, Applied Technology, Commercial, and Agricultural Secondary School Certificates and with a minimum score of 65% can be admitted to ECT programs that are closely related to their fields of study and have to fulfill all other admission requirements. However, students with these certificates and with scores less than 65% can be admitted in the Foundation Program.
B) Proficiency in English: An adequate level of English language proficiency is required for admission. Applicants are required to present one of the following certificates of proficiency:
