Dubai, UAE: The GCC’s leading independent US educational consultancy, Carian College Advisors, in collaboration with American College of Dubai (ACD), has created a pathways program to give students throughout the region an opportunity to study in the US at a lower cost. By combining their expertise in US higher education, American Pathways provides students with an affordable, comprehensive, and personalized alternative to a four-year degree offered by American universities in the UAE. Through American Pathways, students achieve their goal of earning a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university in the US. Students begin their higher education journey at ACD, where they earn transferable credits for the duration of one to two academic years (depending on desired major and price sensitivity), and ultimately complete their studies in the US at an accredited university of their choice. Throughout the process, Carian College Advisors offers American Pathways students tailor-made and comprehensive application strategy and guidance and empowers students to achieve their goals.
“American Pathways is designed for students who aspire to earn a bachelor’s degree from a university in the US but do not have the financial means, academic credentials, or knowledge to do so independently,” Carian College Advisors’ Managing Director, Peter Davos, states. “It offers students a unique opportunity to earn a degree from a US university while mitigating costs and providing a smoother transition from the UAE to the US.”
“For many students and families across the region, studying in the US is just a pipe dream, unachievable due to high costs and unpreparedness for the rigor of college-level courses at US universities,” explains Carian College Advisors’ Head of College Counseling Maia Bulbul. “That’s where American Pathways comes in. This program empowers students with realistic means to creating brighter futures for themselves and their families.”
The American Pathways program helps students realize their dreams of successfully earning a bachelor’s degree from a US university at a fraction of the cost.
