The Muscat University stall at the recently concluded EduTraC Oman 2016 attracted a large number of student visitors eager to know more about the newest university in Oman and the high quality degrees on offer. The management and staff spoke to students about the specialised curriculum at the university, while also guiding students on what they should look for in their career.
Held under the patronage of Oman’s Ministry of Higher Education and Ministry of Manpower, EduTraC Oman is a multi-sector recruitment event for higher education, training and job opportunities. “The event has generated a lot of interest among Omani and international students. 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. Many students have registered their interest in joining Muscat University and we look forward to welcoming them as the very first cohort in our foundation and pre-master’s programmes in October,” said professor Anthony Cahalan, vice chancellor, Muscat University.
The vision of the university is to deliver first-class teaching supported by research that is rigorous and relevant for Omani students, expatriate students residents in Oman and international students. From September 2017, Muscat University will co-deliver bachelor and master’s degrees in business and management, engineering and technology and transport and logistics with renowned UK universities, Aston and Cranfield, and flying faculty from the UK supported by Muscat-based staff.
Muscat University is currently based in the Children’s Public Library in Qurm and will move to their premises in Ghubra in mid-2017. Registrations are underway for the general foundation programme and the pre-master’s programme. To know more or register, log on to www.muscatuniversity.edu.om
