Mus­cat Univer­sity set to wel­come stu­dents for new aca­demic year

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Mus­cat Univer­sity, the new­est univer­sity in Oman, is ready to wel­come stu­dents to ex­pe­ri­ence high-qual­ity in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion, open­ing doors to global op­por­tu­ni­ties in their re­spec­tive field of study whilst study­ing in Oman. With a vi­sion to pro­duce fu­ture lead­ers in both the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, the univer­sity plans to set new ed­u­ca­tional stan­dards by com­bin­ing aca­demic rigour with the world of work and a strong com­mit­ment to in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship.

In part­ner­ship with the in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned and highly ranked As­ton and Cran­field Uni­ver­si­ties in the UK, Mus­cat univer­sity of­fers lead­ing Bach­e­lor and Master’s pro­grammes in Busi­ness and Man­age­ment, Trans­port and Lo­gis­tics and En­gi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­ogy, along with Foun­da­tion and prepara­tory English pro­grammes.

On suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of their pro­grammes, stu­dents at Mus­cat Univer­sity will re­ceive two cer­tifi­cates from Mus­cat Univer­sity and its rel­e­vant part- ner in­sti­tu­tion (As­ton Univer­sity for Bach­e­lor de­grees and Cran­field Univer­sity for Master’s de­grees).

Of­fer­ing a vi­able lo­cal al­terna- tive for Omani and ex­pa­tri­ate stu­dents res­i­dent in Oman, Mus­cat Univer­sity also aims to wel­come a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from out- side Oman, thus en­abling a strong in­ter­na­tional co­hort of stu­dents in a global learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

Mus­cat Univer­sity is fur­ther en­hanc­ing the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence by heav­ily in­vest­ing in the de­vel­op­ment of stu­dents’ en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills through ac­tiv­i­ties that com­ple­ment their class­room ex­pe­ri­ences such as in­dus­try place­ments and ex­change pro­grammes to de­velop ca­reer-ready grad­u­ates and global cit­i­zens.

The fac­ulty mem­bers at Mus­cat Univer­sity have wide rang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in global and lo­cal con­texts, and are ex­perts in their re­spec­tive fields. Most of the teach­ing will be de­liv­ered by ‘fly­ing fac­ulty’ from both Cran­field and As­ton Uni­ver­si­ties.

Pro­fes­sor An­thony Ca­ha­lan, vice chan­cel­lor of Mus­cat Univer­sity, said, “We look for­ward to wel­com­ing our first Bach­e­lor and Master’s stu­dents to be­gin in Septem­ber. Many stu­dents have al­ready reg­is­tered an in­ter­est in our pro­grammes and we hope that by pro­vid­ing high-qual­ity in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion in Mus­cat, we can em­power Omani and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents to achieve their dreams.” For de­tails, visit www.mus­catu­ni­ver­sity.edu.om.
