Join DIFC’s January 2020 Intake
You can still join DIFC for the September 2018 academic year. Your visa can be processed in as little as 4 weeks, depending on where you are travelling from. Get in contact with us today and we will help you fast track your application and visa.
Our January intake allows SPM students to use their trial SPM results for admission purposes, rather than waiting for your final SPM results in March.
This pathway will save you a full year on your study plan, as you’ll already be halfway through your Foundation Year by the time you get your SPM results.
