GEMS Education Collaborates With Arizona State University for Innovative Online College Pathway
- GEMS secondary students can now earn ASU credits while studying at high school
- Collaboration part of GEMS drive to expand access to education through technology
- ASU named USA’s number one ‘Most Innovative School’ for six consecutive years
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - August 15, 2021:   GEMS Education today announces a unique collaboration with Arizona State University (ASU), one of the United States’ most digitally-driven universities focused on expanding global access to education and named the number one ‘Most Innovative School’ by US News & World Report for six years running.
Through this new collaboration, GEMS students will get the chance to take rigorous college-level courses taught directly by university faculty and earn college credit – all while still in high school.
The re-imagined online learning experience is highly flexible, and students can design their own tailored pathway, preparing them in advance for university success. GEMS students will also gain valuable university credits, resulting in significant savings in terms of both time and money if they choose to enrol at ASU to earn an undergraduate degree. The earned credit can also potentially be transferred to any accepting university.
ASU’s expanding list of world-class courses are taught by leading experts in their respective fields, and GEMS students will be able to choose from over 20 of ASU’s first-year Universal Learner Courses, such as Accounting for Business, Introduction to Astronomy, Sustainable Engineering, and Computer Science.
ASU is a comprehensive public research university based in Tempe, Arizona. It is rated a top world university by the Center for World University Rankings and ranked #9 in the world for global impact by Times Higher Education.
