Sightseeing in Dubai

Burj Al ArabDubai is a visual delight, with so many amazing sights at every turn. During the programme there will be opportunities to sightsee around the city.

The day tour is a hop-on/hop-off sightseeing tour of Dubai with a personal audio commentary available in 8 languages. The tour’s two available routes – the ‘beach tour’ and the ‘city tour’, provide the perfect orientation of Dubai. You can hop on and off as many times as you wish and explore more than twenty places of interest, discovering everything from the world famous Burj Al Arab to traditional gold and spice souks. We are also pleased to provide several free inclusions with your ticket: a Dhow Cruise on Dubai Creek, entry to Dubai Museum and entry to Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum’s House, making the Big Bus Tour your perfect introduction to Dubai.

Daytrip to Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi CityPart of your study abroad programme includes one day in the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. Its Heritage Village provides an insight into Abu Dhabi’s early history, explaining the traditional Bedouin lifestyle that existed many years before the discovery of oil. Abu Dhabi is a contrast with its Emirati neighbour, Dubai and a visit to Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque is Abu Dhabi’s most significant landmark and one of the most remarkable pieces of architecture in the UAE.

A guided tour of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque introduces this impressive venue to you. The It features 82 domes all decorated with white marble and 1,000 marble columns each inlaid with semi-precious stones. The main prayer hall can accommodate more than 7,000 worshippers. It features the world’s largest chandelier; 15 metres high and 10 metres in diameter. In previous programmes we have also visited Emirates Palace, a 5* luxury resort, which is also the royal residence of the Sheikh. You will also pass Yas Island, Abu Dhabi’s main entertainment centre and the home of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Desert Safari

Dubai Desert

A desert safari is a must for everyone who visits the UAE. A memory to share with your family and friends back home, this is one safari you can only do here. The tour departs in the afternoon across the desert of Dubai, with the opportunity to quad bike as well as several photo-stops during an exciting dune bashing drive. You will continue driving across the desert and stop to watch the beautiful sunset. Once the sun goes down, head to base camp where camel rides, henna painting, belly dancing and a barbecue dinner await.
