JU general information
- University segregates male and female students (unclear if just by class, or for all aspects of university life - library, cafeteria, etc).
- All courses (except presumably Arabic and Islamic Studies) are taught in English.
- Jumeira University location is in Al Quoz 4 (which is not in Jumeirah, but not so far away either ... at least not as far as some of the other areas in Dubai with the name Jumeirah). JU is near the Al Khail Gate interchange on Al Khail Rd, on the same road as the Springdales School.
- Jumeira and Jumeirah are different spellings for the same word, and used interchangeably at random. University entrance sign has Jumeira on it.
