New to Najah
Najah has added a set of new features to enhance the student journey at the event. This includes:

  • The Success Hub, which is designed to empower prospective students with the knowledge and tools they need to choose their individual “path to university”. A line-up of topics such as breaking down the Ivy League, choosing one’s dream university, preparing for interviews, acing applications, getting a scholarship or even a side hustle, and honing public speaking skills, to name a few, will be discussed through a set of panel discussions, workshops and keynote speeches.
  • For faculty members, postgraduate students, or researchers aiming to advance their academic research skills, Emirates Scholar Research Centre, an online platform, will connect scholars with like-minded users, allowing them to gain knowledge through networking and studying. It will also give them free access to a research directory as well as publish their manuscripts in specific journals or even get it funded for further developments, if needed.
  • Designed for school counsellors and educators, the School Counsellors Forum will explore various higher education topics and trends, opening valuable networking and learning opportunities from some of the top names in the industry.
  • The Board Games Club is aimed at developing critical thinking, problem solving, analytical skills and time management among others faculties.
