Dubai International Academic City Student Hub Announces Activity Calendar for 2008

Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), a member of TECOM Investments, today announced an action-packed calendar of events and initiatives for the 2008 – 2009 academic year. The activities will begin on 12 October with a Week of Welcome carnival. Organised by the relaunched student body DIAC Student Hub, the week-long extravaganza will temporarily change the landscape of the cluster, featuring games and food stalls, as well as music and other attractions for new and returning students.

Kicking off with a formal orientation ceremony, the Week of Welcome will offer key presentations, including health tips and awareness sessions on the UAE culture. It will also include a gala dinner, desert safari and movie nights.

Dr Ayoub Kazim, Executive Director of DIAC and Dubai Knowledge Village, said: ““Welcoming new students and making them feel comfortable in their new environment is one of DIAC’s key objectives. These orientation activities, along with a packed annual calendar, aim to enhance the overall campus experience and create a vibrant student community.”

Comprising four units – visas, events, careers and community projects, the DIAC Student Hub is primarily mandated to organize social, cultural and career-related events with the support of academic institutions functioning out of the knowledge cluster. Sporting events including tournaments in football, cricket and volleyball will be also be conducted throughout the year. DIAC is home to over 11,000 students, representing 102 nationalities.

Lisa Franklin-Browne, Head of DIAC Student Hub, said: “Aiming to facilitate cultural and social development and help students integrate into the wider UAE community, we endeavour to bring talent, culture and heritage to the forefront of university life. Our aim is promote academic, social and cultural adjustments among students, encourage greater unification on campus and build a synergy within the DIAC community.”

Field trips to heritage sites and museums will also feature on the calendar of activities to provide a comprehensive understanding of the UAE culture.

The annual Career Fair takes top slot in the DIAC Student Hub’s annual calendar, providing undergraduates and recruiters with a common platform to meet and network. The forum offers an ideal opportunity for students to target several recruiters under one roof.

The DIAC Student Hub’s Careers Unit is also responsible for the identifying internship programmes and entry-level positions through continuous contact with HR personnel from various industries.

On the agenda for the up-coming year are various industry visits to DIAC to conduct on site campus placements, the CEO Hot Seat event that will see keynote speakers from diverse industries sharing their experience and knowledge, as well as networking events for enabling students to meet and mingle with professionals from different industries.
