AUD vs. AUS

How might one compare the American University in Dubai (AUD) with the American University of Sharjah (AUS)?

My understanding is that there is no connection between AUD and AUS. They just have somewhat similar names.

Is one better than the other? And, if so, then how?

Any other thoughts?

Places to study Arabic in Dubai

Can anyone suggest a good place to study Arabic in Dubai?

I'd be looking for a very basic (intro) course.

Aussie school

I heard that an Aussie school in the UAE recently had some sort of dispute with the government and was closing down.

It might have been the University of South Queensland, but I'm not sure.

Anybody know about that?

UNB

I think the University of New Brunswick has programs in China, Bermuda, and maybe India. They are also apparently looking at Southeast Asia. However, I don't know of any UNB programs in the Middle East.

Gum in SG

If somebody needs chewing gum in Singapore, it is easy enough to pop over the causeway and to buy some in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

Apparently, doctors in Singapore can also perscribe chewing gum (for bad breath???). That was a compromise to enable the US-Singapore free trade agreement!

KV

Looked at the website for KV the other day.

They still listed the University of Southern Queensland, which I heard has left Dubai.

Another global ranking of universities was done last year by The Times (London) Higher Education Supplement. To see the full list, you would probably have to register.

Electricity

Here’s a very basic question. What sort of electrical outlets/plugs are used in Dubai? Three-prong, UK-style (also found in Malaysia, Singapore, etc.)? Or, is another type of outlet used? My impression is that there are about half a dozen different types of outlets used in different parts of the wor...

Credit card

You might want to keep a US address for certain purposes while overseas. You could make payments on your credit card bills thru a family member if somebody is willing to do that for you.

Ramadan in Dubai

This tread is interesting. Although I've not yet been in Dubai during Ramadan, I have been in Malaysia during Ramadan. Islam is the state religion in Malaysia although only a slight majority of Malaysians are Muslims. The Malays are Muslims, but most of the other ethnic groups follow other religions...
