Alumni Stories from across the GEMS Education Network


Hear What Some of Our GEMS Education Alumni Say

  • I’m from GEMS World Academy – Dubai’s Class of 2018, and I am now entering my second year studying Veterinary Medicine at the University of Bristol, UK. I’ve met some wonderful people here, and several nights out have been a fun part of me figuring out British culture. My favourite memory of my first year is driving back from a farm with a lamb I had saved from an inhumane euthanisation in the backseat of my car.”

  • I’m a graduate of the 2016 batch at GEMS World Academy – Dubai, and I’m finishing my final year of Geological Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. After graduating in 2020, I hope to find a geotechnical engineering job in Vancouver or at home in Bangkok, Thailand. As my undergraduate education comes to a close, I have a great appreciation for the role my school played in my life, as a positive influence.”

  • I graduated from GEMS World Academy – Dubai in 2015. Since then, I’ve completed a two-year acting course at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. I am currently continuing my studies in the UK where I’m aiming to earn my full bachelor’s degree. After completing my degree course, I hope to make acting a full-time career (both on stage as well as on film and TV) and become fully certified in stage combat.”
