The Peninsula - The Ministry of Education and Higher Education released yesterday a list of 156 universities based in United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

The students wishing to apply for distance education in these universities will be required to obtain advance approval from the Certificates Attestation and Equivalency Section.

The Department will start receiving applications from students looking for opportunities to continue their education in these universities starting from January 1, 2018 said Dr. Khalid Al-Hurr, the Director of High Education Institute at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.

The students will study on their own expenses and they are required to present their documents to attestation section.

Distance education has become one of the mainstream systems of higher education and many distinguished international universities are introducing courses through this system, Dr. Al-Hurr added.

The approval of enrollment in such programs needs that these courses should not require physical presence and should only be taught in distance, said the Director of Higher Education Institute.

The selection of the discipline-based list of approved universities took into account the terms and conditions applied to distance education, Dr. Al-Hurr outlined.
