Dining Out

Arriving in Dubai

There is much choice in Dubai when it comes to great food and such a variance in price, you will always find something that suits your tastes and preferences. One thing you will notice is that restaurants which serve alcohol will generally charge more for their food than those that do not. There are tons of great value restaurants across the city that don’t serve alcohol but make great food at affordable prices.

Your admittance to the U.A.E. is a two-stage process.

Hotels are the only establishments licensed to serve alcohol. The cost of alcohol is higher than what you might find in non-Muslim countries (beer USD9, spirits USD18). Please bear in mind that acts of alcohol intoxication in public may result in legal consequences. Students are not permitted to obtain an alcoholic beverage license, so consume alcohol at your own risk.

1. At the visa processing counter, the visa copy which was sent to you by Hult, is checked to confirm your identity. You will then be given the original visa. 2. Once you have completed all requirements at this desk you may proceed to the standard immigration desk. Metered taxis are available outside the main exit of the airport. Journey time to the DIAC is approximately 30 minutes and will cost you AED70 (USD20). Students should not travel to Dubai before receipt of a visa from Hult. Hult is not responsible for fees incurred if students do not follow these guidelines.

Accreditation & Rankings

Getting Around Roads in this cosmopolitan city are first-class. Increased investment by the RTA (Roads and Transport Authority) has reduced the traffic level dramatically. All roads leading to the campus at the DIAC (Al Ain Road, Emirates Road and Dubai By Pass) are minimum three lane highways with no congestion or traffic lights, making commuting fast and easy. While public transport in Dubai is constantly improving, relying on public transport is not always recommended; the preferred mode of transport by most residents is by car or taxi. Taxis in Dubai are relatively cheap; getting from Downtown Dubai to the DIAC will cost an average of USD15.
