He may enter the US on a student visa but at the time he gets his student visa he cannot have an intent to immigrate. He must tell the consular officer he intends to return to UAE after completing his education.Once he gets here he can change his mind about wanting to remain here as he progresses through his degree program.He first needs to apply to school and be accepted. It can be a community college or a 4 year university.Then the school issues him an I-20 which is a statement of his eligibility to be a student there.He goes online and makes files the DS-160 for his student visa and takes with him his I-20 and his evidence he has sufficient funds to pay his tuition and living expenses without working. He satisfies the officer of his intent to return by showing all his family lives in UAE and his ties are there. He tells the officer the wonderful things he hopes to do in UAE with his education.He gets his visa stamp and comes to the US.That is the way im brief.For a more detailed step-by-step guide please see this link.http://www.ice.gov/sevis/studentsWelcome as a member.
