Kuwait University To Maintain Fees for Foreign Students


Kuwait University (KU) has completed its procedures to receive applications from international students to join its colleges for the second semester of the current academic year, where at least 300 students will be accepted. The university decided to maintain the previous fees without an increase, which is KD100 for each unit of study, and the application fee is KD10.

The KU administration has listed the majors in which international students can register and be accepted, including the faculties of law, arts, Sharia and Islamic studies, social sciences, administrative sciences, and the kindergarten program in the College of Education. International students can also be admitted to the majors of the faculties of Science, Engineering, and Petroleum, Allied Medical Sciences and Education, and Life Sciences. According to sources, the total number of admitted students can be more than 300 or less based on seat vacancies in colleges that are not occupied by Kuwaiti students.

The plan for accepting international students was developed by Kuwait University to improve its global ranking, as international ranking institutions, including QS set the percentage of foreign students studying as a criterion for raising the classification of universities, expecting to improve the ranking of Kuwait University in the list in 2024.
