The British University of Bahrain (BUB) opened its doors in 2018 and was unique because of its partnership with one of the UK’s leading universities, The University of Salford, Manchester.
One of the most exciting things about BUB is that because the degrees are identical to those offered on Salford’s main campus, students can transfer to the UK at any time during their studies. Alternatively they can complete their degrees in Bahrain and gain exactly the same qualification as they would have had they chosen to study in Manchester. All degrees offered at BUB are fully recognised for attestation by the Higher Education Council of Bahrain.
BUB brings to Bahrain not just Salford degrees, but also the Salford learning experience. As with Salford University in the UK, BUB works closely with industry to ensure that our students are fully equipped for the world of work. Internships, industrial placements and visits as well as a focus on practical application all contribute to making BUB graduates uniquely employable and ready to begin successful careers.
BUB has 10 majors in 3 colleges of ICT, Business and Engineering and the Built Environment.

Gulf Insider contacted this school to provide useful information that will help you navigate through the educational system in Bahrain.
BUB had been making extensive use of the learning platform Blackboard to support our classroom teaching, including Blackboard’s in-built virtual classroom system, Collaborate Ultra, to provide an equivalent experience to our students.
At the British University of Bahrain we believe in rewarding academic excellence and in attracting the most able students from Bahrain and the wider region.

There were a range of initiatives that were implemented soon as we realised that we won’t be resuming normal classes for a while:
Ensuring our student’s safety and wellbeing is a priority at the British University of Bahrain. To ensure that they have all the support needed, we have a dedicated member of staff, our head of students affair whom students can reach out to. Any student facing any difficulty is dealt with in a compassionate and considerate manner keeping students wellbeing as a priority.
