International students on a student visa cannot take up a job in Dubai. However, internship opportunities after completion of studies are available to them. Students need permission from their respective universities to take up an internship or work in an internship program. There are certain universities in Dubai that help the students with internship opportunities. If you get an internship offer then you are allowed to work as an intern in Dubai else you are not allowed to do so on a student visa.

However,With recent changes to the job opportunities for international students, to get a work permit, the student needs to get in touch with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Labour Department provided he/she has sponsorship from the University, which will allow them to work in Dubai, part-time.
