We were very de­lighted to see so many bright, young Omani and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents reg­is­ter their in­ter­est in join­ing Mus­cat Univer­sity.

“We spoke to stu­dents about the in­dus­try-en­gaged pro­grammes we of­fer and their rel­e­vance to the so­cial and eco­nomic pri­or­i­ties of Oman and of the re­gion. We look for­ward to wel­com­ing them as the very first co­hort at Mus­cat Univer­sity in our Bach­e­lor and Master’s pro­grammes in Septem­ber.”

Af­fil­i­ated to the renowned As­ton and Cran­field Uni­ver­si­ties of the UK, they of­fer dual de­gree pro­grammes, i.e. on suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of their pro­grammes, stu­dents at Mus­cat Univer­sity will be awarded a de­gree from both Mus­cat Univer­sity and from its rel­e­vant part­ner in­sti­tu­tion, ei­ther As­ton or Cran­field Univer­sity (As­ton Univer­sity for the un­der­grad­u­ate Bach­e­lor pro­grammes or Cran­field Univer­sity for the post­grad­u­ate Master’s pro­grammes).
