Student scholarships to ICCA annual congress in Dubai

We are one of only a small handful of universities across the globe who are members of the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA). Our membership offers our students a new world of potential internships, access to job vacancies and two funded scholarships to the ICCA annual Congress - which this year is in Dubai.


ICCA is committed to educating young professionals in the meeting industry via the ICCA Education Fund and has developed a special scholarship for ICCA member universities. As a member we are able to give our students the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage by building relationships with the industry. The Congress will take place in Dubai, U.A.E. from 11-14 November 2018. The scholarship includes:

  • Full congress attendance (including education and networking events)
  • Customised briefing on how to get the best out of the Congress
  • Behind the scenes briefing with ICCA Congress-organising staff
  • Personalised mentoring during the Congress by industry professionals
  • Opportunity to post CV on the ICCA Congress website
  • Opportunity to place CV at Student Scholarship Corner during the Congress
