All programmes have been designed to help students excel in their chosen specialty with the one-year certificate programme preparing them to directly enter the workforce. However, students can also continue with their education by progressing to the Diploma which takes an additional year. 


Payment Plan

Deposit of AED 2,000 is required to secure place upon offer acceptance. Course fees are broken down into three instalments, one per term, due at the start of each term.



Once offered a place on a course, students have 30 days to accept their place and secure it by paying the non- refundable deposit of AED 2,000. This amount is later deducted from the first terms fee.


Terms & Conditions

Programme fees and payment plans are subject to eligibility, payment, refund and privacy policies. For more information; contact us on admissions@dct.ac.ae 




International students are required to pay the course fees in full before the start of the academic year. The deadline for applications from International students is July 15th, 2020.

The college starts the visa process for international students once they have accepted their offer to join a programme of study at DCT and paid their acceptance deposit. The full Visa Fee Payment is due by July 31st 2020. Once their visa application has been accepted,  international students are then required to pay the full course fee, in order to receive their visa and enter the country.


Please note that any student that requires a student visa from the college (even if already in Dubai as a non-resident) is considered to be an international student. For more information on the visa process, click here (This live link needs to be checked to ensure information is still accurate)
