DIFC is proud to announce a new partnership with Abedeen Academy in Malaysia.

This pathway will help students from Malaysia to progress to leading universities in Ireland, UK and worldwide through the International Foundation Year programme at DIFC.

Abedeen Academy teaches and encourages students to have goals and dreams. As they mature in age and become wise young adults, they would start planning their educational path, with the assistance of their parents and teachers. As an academy that offers both ICGSE and SPM certifications, Abedeen Academy always strive to look out for the best platform for Abedeen graduates to further their studies in pursuing their dreams.

Progressing to study the NCUK International Foundation Year in Ireland, provides Malaysian students  with the opportunity to adapt to studying in a new country whilst in a supportive environment. Furthermore, students also have the opportunity to visit university partners to learn about the undergraduate courses on offer and student life on-campus.

“We’re extremely pleased to partner with Abedeen Academy in Malaysia. DIFC has a proven track record of helping Malaysian students prepare for university study in Ireland the and the UK, which fits well with the high calibre students studying with Abedeen. We look forward to welcoming the first students from Abedeen in September 2018.”

Diarmuid Moroney, DIFC President

“DIFC fits well in this effort where DIFC brings flexibility for the students by offering four streams of foundation. The collaboration will optimize the strengths of both parties and provide a complete progression for the Abedeen graduates.”

Qutren Nada Ahmad, Abedeen Academy CEO
