Her Excellency confirmed that this achievement manifests the University’s continuous commitment and support of enhancing education, providing conducive educational environment for students, supporting university professors in the field of scientific research, and meeting global standards, hence placing the higher education institutions in Bahrain as a study destination of students from different countries. Further, she commended UTB’s progressive initiatives in achieving more successes and excellence in producing job-market qualified graduates and affirmed the support of the Higher Education Council to all universities towards the attainment of Bahrain’s economic vision 2030.

Dr. Hasan Almulla, President of UTB, praised the efforts and continued vigilance of the Higher Education Council headed by Her Excellency Dr. Shaikha Rana bint Isa bin Duaij Al Khalifa, Secretary General of the Higher Education Council and Deputy Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of HEC, citing the Council’s significant role in supporting the University in its pursuit of international accreditations for its bachelor and postgraduate academic programmes.
