CBSE to Establish Office in UAE, Strengthening Educational Ties

The Union Education Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan, has announced that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will establish an office in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the near future. This declaration was made during Pradhan’s three-day visit to Abu Dhabi.

He also met with HE Sara Musallam, the Minister of Secretary, and expressed his belief that the IIT Delhi-Abu Dhabi campus would serve as an exemplary symbol of friendship. During his visit, he toured the interim campus located at Zayed University. The IIT Delhi’s Abu Dhabi campus is scheduled to commence classes in January 2024.

Pradhan highlighted the presence of over 100 CBSE schools in the UAE and revealed plans to establish a CBSE office in the country soon. He also met with the Minister of Education, Ahmad Al Falasi, and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at enhancing cooperation between educational institutions in both nations. The MoU seeks to facilitate student and faculty exchange, collaborative research programs, course design, and other initiatives.

The MoU is expected to streamline regulations, legal frameworks, and best practices in general and higher education, including national qualification frameworks, to enable the mutual recognition of qualifications between both countries. It also encourages academic collaboration between higher education institutions to offer twinning, joint degree, and dual degree programs, among other initiatives.
