Message from the Vice-Chancellor

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Muscat University.

The vision of Muscat University is to transform individuals through quality education that is research-informed and industry-engaged. This vision is underpinned by a commitment to ethical approaches in everything we do meaning that every student will be respected, nurtured and supported to help them achieve their best.

The University’s programmes are delivered through our three Faculties of Business and Management, Engineering and Technology, and Transport and Logistics, together with the Foundation Programme which prepares students for their chosen Bachelors degree.

Our Masters programmes are offered through a partnership with Cranfield University and our Bachelors programmes are delivered in partnership with Aston University. Both Cranfield and Aston are leading UK universities and we are proud to have such strong partnerships characterised by internationally renowned, professionally accredited programmes delivered mainly by flying-faculty. The Foundation Programme is quality assured by Aston University and therefore students who pass this programme do not require any further English Language tests to join a Bachelors degree.

On successful completion of their programmes, students at Muscat University are awarded a degree from both Muscat University and from its relevant partner institution, either Cranfield University or Aston University.

Muscat University is further enhancing our student experience by heavily investing in the development of our students’ entrepreneurial skills through activities that complement their classroom experiences such as industry placements and exchange programmes to fulfil our vision of developing career-ready graduates and global citizens. Whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student, by joining Muscat University we will provide you with an educational experience and a student journey that will not only enrich your life forever but will also be relevant to employer needs and expectations of a 21 st  century graduate.

I look forward to personally welcoming you to Muscat University.

Message from the Cranfield University Vice-Chancellor

I am delighted that we are working in close partnership with Muscat University and Aston University in developing an innovative suite of programmes in Oman. The postgraduate courses offered by Cranfield draw on our world-class expertise in technology and management and will address the growing need for industry-facing postgraduate skills in Oman.

Cranfield University has an established business expertise in the Gulf Cooperation Council region and wider Middle East, supporting the research and education interests of the region’s utilities, ports, aerospace and logistics businesses. Much of our research and postgraduate educational offer has been delivered in partnership with educational and government institutions in the region. Our new relationship with Muscat University looks to the future with confidence and will deliver postgraduate education across energy futures, logistics, air transport management, entrepreneurship and finance. I hope that you will want to take advantage of the opportunities that you will see in this partnership. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our taught and research-based programmes are linked to research in areas including photonics, forensic linguistics, entrepreneurship and healthy ageing and many of our programmes hold professional accreditation. Aston Business School is one of an elite group of business schools in the world holding triple accreditation for the programmes it offers. Our diverse and international student population, at both undergraduate and graduate level, means that Aston’s research and teaching has impact around the world and the University remains one of the best universities in the country for student employability, with strong links with graduate employers and a clear sense of purpose guided by our commitment to graduate outcomes and to social mobility. This new partnership enables us to combine the strengths of Aston, Cranfield and Muscat Universities and bring excellent new research and teaching opportunities to the region. We will enjoy welcoming our new students.
