Dubai College Consulting


An Overview of Dubai College Admissions Counseling

Dubai, a city where skyscrapers tickle the clouds and the aroma of biryani roams the streets. We’ve got gold souks, indoor ski slopes, and now a secret weapon for acing your college applications – welcome to IvySummit! Much like our city, revered for its fusion of tradition and innovation, Top colleges seek students who blend academic prowess with unique perspectives. They’re not just looking for the student who excels in Math or Physics – they want the student who, between shawarma outings and exploring tech startups in Silicon Oasis, is also leveraging their passions into high-impact projects.

Think about it. You’re not just a kid who’s good at school. You’re the fearless teen who’s wrestled with the crowds in Deira during the Shopping Festival, the whiz-kid who’s taken the lead in a robotics project in Silicon Oasis, the talent who managed to eat an entire shawarma from that food truck at Kite Beach without dropping a single piece. 

That’s the spirit colleges are looking for!

Each year, many students from top schools like Dubai American Academy and Dubai College  compete for limited spots at top universities. The race is as intense as a Dubai summer afternoon, but don’t worry – IvySummit is here to help you get organized and present your unique story!


Our Process

At IvySummit, we’re more than just consultants. With former admission officers and alumni from elite colleges and Ivy leagues, we will be your guides to drafting a personalized high school timeline and turning your dream college into a reality. We understand the importance of crafting a story that reflects your growth and achievements, and we’re with you every step of the way.


High school is more like a marathon than a sprint. It’s a steady journey that requires endurance and resilience. Each year matters – we help you build on different activities, progressively narrowing your focus as you navigate and build a proper high school timeline. We’re not just guiding a schedule or building a college list; we’re shaping your path to success. 

You can find more tips on building an effective timeline here.

Intellectual Vitality

Top colleges aren’t just looking for grades, they’re searching for intellectual vitality. We work with students to showcase their genuine interest in learning and expand on their extracurricular activities. Through various sessions, we bring out that spark of scholarship that sets you apart.

Area of Excellence

Each student owns a unique ‘why’ and has a distinct narrative. Yet, many stumble into the trap of ‘one-size-fits-all’ applications, instead of playing their personal trump card of uniqueness.

We’re here to help you shine a spotlight on your exceptional talents. Our team of experts will join forces with you to identify your standout abilities and passions. Consider us your personal cheerleaders, supporting you every step of the way as you impress colleges with your unique brilliance. Together, we’ll create an application that showcases the very best of what makes you, well, you!

Essay Editing

It’s common for international students to approach US college supplemental essays as they would academic essays required by other countries. Unfortunately, this misunderstanding can be a significant pitfall, given the weightage of these essays and their unique format.

But no need to worry! 

That’s exactly where we step in. We’ll guide you through your journey, from brainstorming, writing, to editing essays. We offer a comprehensive range of services to make your application shine. 

Apart from essays, here are a few other common missteps to avoid in your application.

At IvySummit, we get you. We help you spin your experiences into an application that’ll make top colleges sit up and say, “Habibi, this kid’s got the spice!”
