26 September 2013
- The Universal Academy of Excellence appears to have been renamed as The Oasis School in Dubai. Unknown if that had anything to do with the abbreviation or acronym ended up as the UAE. All other details seem to be the same as given on this page. Date of name change not given.
- UAE building and campus was previously the location of the Safa Private School Dubai, which relocated to Al Quoz.
- Contact details removed from table: telephone +971-4-3881388, fax +971-4-3881988, website www.theacademy.ae (forwards to The Oasis School website at present), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
15 August 2013
- The Universal Academy of Excellence announced as a new school opening in Al Safa area of Dubai, with opening date 02 September 2013. Relocated from old St Andrews BILD school address?
- Not clear from press release if school is opening as a mainstream school which accepts special needs children, or a specialised school for special needs students. The previous school, St Andrews or BILD, was well known as an institute in Dubai which was run for special needs students. Judging by the number of therapists listed on the website, whatever they are operating as, they are obviously better staffed than almost anywhere else in Dubai to support and educate special needs children.
- Contact details supplied - tel +971-4-388 1388, fax +971-4-388 1988, website domain www.theacademy.ae. Domain www.universalacademyofexcellence.com (also seen) forwards to www.theacademy.ae. Another domain exists, www.academyofexcellence.ae, but it appears to be unused although owned by The UAE.
- Email address supplied as email@example.com but might not be correct. The domain www.academyofexcellence.com forwards to an online game website, www.gamex.com (unknown if real or scam, or malware). Perhaps address was supposed to be firstname.lastname@example.org. Other sources list email contact as email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org which look more legitimate.
25 October 2012 review
- The Universal Academy of Excellence (Universal Academy of Education) (UAE (!) or UAoE) is the new name for St Andrews School in Dubai which recently closed amid reports and allegations that the owner had absconded with school funds and was arrested in Oman. The school was rescued by Dubai Education Company and reopened as Universal Academy of Excellence with a new school head - Mr Kamil Fodil, previously at the Canadian University of Dubai.
