Currently, there are 128 Omani students studying in Dutch universities of analysis and applied sciences.
Khalid bin Ali al Shaqsi, director of the Department of Foreign Scholarships at MoHE, talked about scholarship regulations and crucial guidelines governing the scholarship procedure.
Saeed bin Ahmed al Shehri, assistant director of the Department Foreign Scholarships, discussed the student charter and their rights.
He stated it is crucial for the students to abide by the laws of the host nation and respect its traditions and practices. They also require at all occasions to safeguard the great name of the sultanate, he added.
Malik al Shakili, from the Department of Foreign Scholarships, gave an overview of the visa program. He stated that all the Dutch universities chosen by the ministry provide their programmes in English.
In order to enrol straight in a bachelor’s degree programme, the student need to acquire six points in the IELTS exam. However, if the student’s IELTS score is significantly less, the ministry will enrol the student in an English language programme for a complete year so that he or she can later enrol in the academic programme in the Netherlands.
