Some tips would be appreciated

Although I am currently in my final year as a High school Student in Dubai (although I have Indian Citizenship), I have been looking into various potential flight institutes for the past year. Sadly I am at a stagnated pace at the moment, I have contacted both Lufthansa’s Ab initio program as well as CAE Brussels as my top two candidates..

Luftansa straight away claimed that they have no records of Indian Citizens gaining PR in Europe hence no job offers in Europe. Meanwhile CAE at least told me that they will aid in the job hunt for areas in the Middle East as well as Asia.

So my question to you guys is, Are there any chances of me getting a job in Europe, regardless of my passport status (I hold a clean record, with multiple travel stamps to Europe, Asia & Africa) I get that i will still have to gather the hours first before applying for major jobs, though what i am asking is, in the long run; can i apply for such jobs in Europe, would airlines provide the PR? or must i gain it myself?

Straight off, I will like to point out I have greta grades, & I have purchased some Theory guides already (Starting this Winter Break) not to mention I have my test flight next week.

Simple answer is that you have no chance if you don't have the right to work in Europe.

If your in the UAE you have a better chance joining one of the big carriers straight after training, if you join one of their cadet schemes.

I believe both EK and EY's cadet programs are open only to UAE nationals, hence our friend may not be eligible.

Thought EKs program is open to non-national, you just have to pay for it? Cadet-scholarships are only available for locals of course.

Seems like they require a UAE Passport.
