RAK free zone entices overseas colleges

RAS AL KHAIMAH // British and American colleges and universities are being lured to Ras al Khaimah's free zone in a bid to attract more students. Low rents for universities and lower fees for students will encourage the growth of the higher education sector in the northern emirates, the chief executive of the RAK free trade zone said.

"We do not want to bring schools that are not internationally recognized " Oussama El Omari said. "People recognize he British curriculum as one with high standards." The free zone is looking for about five British and American institutions and have accepted applications for review. The University of Bolton, from Britain, is the largest private university in RAK since it opened two years ago, with 300 students. The facility's academic director, Zubair Hanslot, said the British curriculum attracted students.
