What is the IHC 2+2 Model

IHC prepares students during two years of study in Dubai for transfer to universities in the US. Preparation starts in the Freshman year at IHC, when students work with academic counselors to develop a clear academic plan. The Academic Plan is based on students’ natural aptitude and interests. The Academic Plan lists the ideal universities and their specific requirements for each student.

Our 2+2 model allows students to save money, gain more academic preparation and be closer to home by completing the first two years of the bachelors degree in Dubai and then moving on to the final two years at elite universities in the US or other regions.
