If you decide on the Ford Focus make sure it is the European version the NA version sucks. I've had friends who've owned both and apparently there is a very noticeable difference.

I personally like the Mazda 3 Sport Back but sadly they don't sell it in Dubai:(

You are right it was University of South Queensland, they had a disagreement with Knowledge village and in the end the students got shafted. My humble opinion, stay away from "for profit" schools and if at all possible go somewhere else for your degree.

My 2 cents.... By no means is Arabic necessary to get around in Dubai or do business in DXB but I think it shows a lot about your character if you learn the language it will help.
