April 26, 2014 3:23 am

Heriot-Watt University has become the latest institution in Dubai to offer PhDs, filling a gap in the UAE’s ambition to become a knowledge-based economy, The National has reported. The Dubai branch of the Edinburgh-based university will see six students receive scholarships that would allow them to study full-time in the three main schools; built environment, engineering and management. This will give the academically gifted the opportunity to waive the Dhs68,000 annual fee for the three-year doctoral programme.
