Week of Welcome, an annual signature event hosted by Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) to mark the beginning of a fresh academic year, opened to an enthusiastic response from new and existing students across 27 universities based at the academic free zone.
Organised by DIAC’s Student Hub, Week of Welcome (referred to as WOW) is a perfect platform for students to interact and gain insight into campus life. The students are particularly familiarized with the activities and facilities offered by the Student Hub. Information on relevant local regulations and cultural sensitivities is also shared during the event.
The programme that kicked off on 2 October will continue until 6 October. Day-one opened with a two-hour orientation session that shed light on the cultural offerings of the UAE as well as the code of conduct prescribed to DIAC students.
