Allinson Louis Aranha – B.Tech Mechanical and Automation.
“It has been a challenge to get out of my comfort zone and move into interacting with professors through online platforms. However, in the past few weeks we have had access to a range of activities and facilities like labs online. I am in my final semester, and I miss my classmates and friends, our football field and taking part in events. Classes have continued as scheduled every week with enough study material to cover every subject. Our doubts, queries and problems are all being addressed throughout the week, even at night over email, WhatsApp, phone calls, Microsoft Teams and sometimes even on social media. We have specific tasks to complete for assignments and tests, using different methods of application in order to achieve our milestones

“Online classes are intense but also great in a way since we can re-watch recorded sessions if we were to catch up on lessons. Since there are open-ended questions and a limited time for tests, it’s almost impossible to refer a book. The given assignments require critical and creative thinking skills, such as solving a case study or writing an article; therefore professors see the real picture of how deeply each student understands a topic. I think that the quality of checking homework and assignments is on the same high level and it doesn’t feel like there is a huge difference between normal classes and virtual ones.”
Hani Jamal – Bachelor of Arts (Journalism and Mass Communication)
“Amity University Dubai has given me a tremendous amount of opportunities to express myself creatively, both inside and outside the classroom. Joining Amity Dubai helped me identify exactly what I wanted to do in the future. Right now, I am hoping I can work for a renowned Radio group. Ultimately, what I want is to perform! I believe that Amity will give me the education and qualifications I need to be able to do that. My professors have helped me with everything I need to succeed. From helping me complete my projects to painstakingly helping me get an internship, that is the right fit for me (even through the pandemic).”

“I came to Dubai in 2019 and it has been a wonderful experience. At first, I was anxious and nervous because it was my first time in the UAE, but within a couple of days those feelings began to fade away and it started to feel like home.
The UAE is known for tourism, but little do people know that it is also home to some of the best universities in the world. Not only are these universities equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, the faculty and professors are experienced and ready to go the extra mile to ensure that students perform well in their different fields. In the UAE, I have not only received a quality education but also developed in other aspects of life.
Dubai is also known for its diversity, being here, I have been exposed to different cultures, religions and ways of life which has uplifted and broaden my perspective about people and the world. As a student, there are countless things to do in the city, from water sports, parachuting, trekking and desert safaris to shopping, attending plays, visiting museums, water parks and virtual reality parks – the list really never ends. The city offers so much for its student community – the safety, security and opportunities you get in Dubai are incomparable to other parts of the world.”
Yu Han – Bachelor of Hospitality Management
“Ever since I was a teenager, I dreamt of studying abroad and learning more about the world. My name is Yu Han and I’m a Chinese student living in Dubai. My parents lived in Dubai for a few years and suggested that I move to the city for my higher education. When I first arrived in Dubai, the cultural diversity was a shock as I had never been exposed to people from so many different countries and backgrounds. I have been in Dubai for almost 6 years now and I love everything about the city. I will be graduating from the Hospitality Management programme at Amity University Dubai this year and hope to study further and get a Masters in Hospitality. Choosing to move to Dubai and picking Amity University Dubai has given me many opportunities that I otherwise would not have, both within hospitality management and extra-curricular activities. I have learnt to become confident in myself and my abilities and put more effort into everything I do. From being a part of the Special Olympics World Games events to attended large exhibitions and inter-university competitions, Amity has given me great memories, opportunities to improve myself and lifelong friends from all over the world.”
