Saeed al Shehri, assistant director of the Department of Foreign Scholarships, spoke about the different scholarship regulations.
Shehri also elaborated on the students charter and rights stipulated in the law on scholarships and foreign programmes.
The students have been advised to respect the culture and laws of Oman and of the host nation whilst pursuing the courses. They have been also asked not to harm the national unity or join organisations, contrary to the values and ethics of Oman, either by means of membership or promotion.
“It is also important to notify the supervisory bodies before embarking on any action that would affect the course of the study, such as change of specialisation, educational institution or withdrawal from a course,” Shehri advised the students.
Yunus al Noufli, an envoy of the Department of Foreign Missions, addressing students with scholarships to Poland stressed on the value of communicating with the respective missions in the nation to total their procedures in a timely manner. He also advised them to periodically update their private information, so that the ministry and the Omani Cultural Attaché’s workplace in London can stick to up on their research and help them in a timely manner.
He also spoke of the value of finishing the mandatory language programme in the course of the certain year, so as not to delay registration in Polish universities.
“Non-completion of the course can have an impact on the main course of study. Such cases have happened with some students in previous years.”
Noufli also asked students to open a bank account instantly on their arrival at the university. “The new account number should be sent to the academic officer at the attaché’s office so that the monthly allowance and other allowances can be transferred properly.”
A meeting was also held for students with scholarships to Germany, in which they have been informed of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
The institution beneath the German government is represented by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the German Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the Ministry of Education and gives stick to-up and care solutions to the international students just before and right after arrival in Germany.
