Monitoring Quality in Arab Higher Education

 

Kuwait

Public universities in Kuwait are licensed by an Emir’s decree after being nominated by the Council of Ministers, a presidential-level cabinet. Private universities apply for licenses from the General Secretariat of Private Universities Council, which is under the supervision of the Higher Education Ministry.

The secretariat reviews such matters as the existence of a financial guarantee that a university can meet its obligations; organizational structure; academic programs; faculty and staff; board members; facilities and equipment; number of students; and plans for scientific research. (For details of regulations governing public-university regulations, click here. For those related to private institutions, click here.)

After a license is granted, the National Bureau for Academic Accreditation and Education Quality Assurance (NBAQ) monitors the quality of education. Based on the public documents reviewed by Al-Fanar Media, no clear timeframe for follow-up is apparent.
