Welcome Message

We strive at KU to achieve highest standards in academic programs, state-of-the-art teaching methodologies that are student-centered, focused on active learning and rich in careful feedbacks on assessments and reflections on students’ progress and achievements of program learning outcomes. Caring for students and assisting them in enhancing their knowledge and skills to prepare them for the job market needs and professional skills is one of our core values. We train students to do research even on the undergraduate level.


KU provides many opportunities for its faculty to conduct and publish researches in prestigious international journals. Research funding is available to support the faculty research and to attend international conferences.


The research priorities of KU are aligned with Bahrain Vision 2030 and HEC’s National Research Strategy. International research collaborations are encouraged by KU. Entrepreneurship and Innovation is one of the key targets of KU. We have programs to encourage KU students to get involved in starting up their own enterprises and provide them with the help and support in this process.
With best wishes.
