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.

Student scholarships for ICCA member universities

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
