Last week, the University witnessed another milestone in our area of internationalization. I would like to congratulate staff and students on the historical occasion of signing the memorandum of cooperation with Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK. The signing ceremony which took place on 9 February 2017 reflects the professionalism and high quality and standards we embrace in the University.
The ceremony was held under the patronage of the Secretary General of the HEC, and in the presence of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, HE the British Ambassador to Bahrain, the Secretary General of the Association of Arab Universities, Director of British Council, President and Vice Chancellor and Pro Vice Chancellor of Cardiff Met, and many important dignitaries. Under this MOC, ASU will deliver two Cardiff Met bachelor programmes in Management and Business Studies and Accounting and Finance. The graduates will receive their degrees from Cardiff Met. This is a golden opportunity for students to get a degree from a British University while saving on costs and not being away from family and friends. I would like to thank all staff and students who contributed to the success of this event, especially Ms Tania Kashou for the precise coordination and excellent management of the event and to Ms Ruqaya Mohsin for being an excellent MC.
