Salaam Suniza,

You are only 17 years of age and going to study in Dubai on your own is not recommended. In fact, it is not supported in the Sharia Law. During travel and during your stay, you would need a mahram.

The evidence includes the hadeeth narrated by al-Bukhaari (1729) and Muslim (2391) from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

"No woman should travel except with a mahram, and no man should enter upon her unless there is a mahram with her.” A man said: “O Messenger of Allaah, I want to go out with such and such an army and my wife wants to go for Hajj.” He said: “Go out with her.” 

Can you look at study options at home? If your parents are becoming old and needy, then your priority at this point is to assist them. How do they feel about your idea? I would be surprised if they were giving their consent.

A word on living in Dubai: It is a beautiful place but it isn't a place a woman should be on her own. Especially a young girl. My advice is to consider online universities. It is very much possible to achieve your study goals by this means.

May Alaah SWT guide you and keep you safe.
