Delhi as the capital of India is one of the best cities to live in, in terms of both facilities as well as educational opportunities.

India’s first Prime Minister, Shri Jawahar Lal Nehru had called Pune “The Oxford of the East." This probably explains what Pune has to offer in terms of education. Pune attracts students not just from all over India but also other parts of the world. Primary education begins in schools, which are either run by the PMC (Pune Municipal Coperation) or privately by trusts and individuals. Schools run by PMC are called public schools and the other - private. Majority of the people often prefer private schools because of the good facilities and also because of the use of English as the learning medium. All the private schools are affiliated either with the Maharashtra state Secondary Schools Certificate (SSC) board or the all-India Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and CBSE boards.

Pune offers education to maximum number of foreign students in India. Every year approximately 4000 students from across the globe come to the city to avail its world class academic programs. The teaching quality, available resources, experienced and dedicated faculty, have all made Pune a favored education destination.

 In 2008, the University of Oxford announced that it plan’s to establish the Oxford University India Business Centre (OUIBC) at Pune. This will be Oxford Business School’s first offshore facility.

 Pune’s reputation of being an educational destination lies in its ability to keep in tune with the rapid changing education scenario of the country. The city’s quick connectivity, growing infrastructure, affordable housing and easy access have made all the difference.
Dubai (in Arabic: دبيّ‎) is one of the seven emirates and the most populous city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Dubai is located on the Eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, in the south west corner of the Arabian Gulf. It is extremely well known for its warm hospitality and rich cultural heritage, and the Emirati people are welcoming and generous in their approach to visitors.

According to the census conducted by the Statistics Center of Dubai, the population of the emirate was 1,422,000 as of 2006, which included 1,073,000 males and 349,000 females. Dubai has changed dramatically over the last three decades, becoming a major business centre with a more dynamic and diversified economy.

The Ministry of Education of the United Arab Emirates is responsible for school's accreditation. The Dubai Education Council was established in July 2005 to develop the education sector in Dubai.
