We are honoured to be recognised for our efforts and thank RAKEZ for their ongoing support. It’s no coincidence that all our communication at University of Bolton, for over almost a decade, ventured at being the Best Value British Education provider in the UAE. This Award bears testimony to us going beyond talking the talk to walking the walk “.
The awards required WINC to demonstrate how the Academic Centre has contributed to the development of the Emirate as well as outlining plans for growth.

Our Academic Centre will go from strength to strength, with the backing of the University of Bolton, and we are excited about the addition of even more new programmes this year. We are looking forward to defending our crown for years to come! ”.
