Kingdom University (KU) is a private university offering high-quality education and training, dedicated to providing academic excellence, relevant and measurable quality research and active community engagement and continuous education.

KU has obtained its license in 2001 and welcomed the first batch of student intake only in September 2004 on its temporary campus in Manama. It is in 2013 when the University moved into its new (owned) permanent campus in Riffa.

The new campus provides a fresh and promising learning environment and study facilities. In 2016, the University has embarked on a major expansion at the campus which includes the development of a new six-storey academic building and extension of car parks and sports facilities.

Capitalizing on years of progressive achievements, KU is proud of gaining confidence recognition from the Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training (QAAET) for almost all of its programs. The university continues to prove its commitment not only by meeting the required standards set by the Higher Education Council (HEC) & QAAET but rather aspires to exceed them and contribute towards the overall development of Bahrain and the Region.

Fully aware of the huge demand on quality education and international acceptance to meet market needs, particularly in line with significant changes in Bahrain and across the GCC region, KU proactively responds to the challenges and needs of contemporary societies and labor markets and the requirements for development and transformation in the era of knowledge capitalism.

The Kingdom University’s vision is to become an eminent University for its quality of academic programs, research and community engagement, contributing to the economic development of the region. KU will strive to create a quality, challenging and independent learning experience for our students and staff, to nurture future leaders and professionals capable of making positive contributions to the society and economy of Bahrain.

Kingdom University has actively engaged into collaborative exchanges and partnerships with number of international higher education institutions like Yeditepe University in Turkey, Flensburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany and many other Universities for the previous 6 years.

In March 2010, KU has received accreditation for exemption from the London based Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) for 5 of its Accounting and Finance programs, which was a momentous achievement and international recognition for its program. Concurrently, KU President signed a Letter of Intent for academic cooperation between Kingdom University and Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) of University Kebangsaan, Malaysia.

In September 2010, Kingdom University became the 1st University in the Gulf Region to be a signatory to the Magna Charta Universitatum – a charter for the fundamental values and principles of a university on institutional autonomy and academic freedom, which is still valid up to date. KU is very confident in the abilities of its graduates’ engagement in, and transition to the labor market. Noteworthy, 66% of KU Alumni get employed in the first year after graduation and 25% are in leading positions in the market, making the difference in Bahrain and around the GCC countries. The list of KU notable graduates includes Engineers, Judges and Legal Consultants and others holding key positions – like CEO or Co-Founder of Business- in Government and Private Sectors.

Our faculty and staff are committed to provide a student-centered learning experience where empathy, respect, commitment, inspiration, and excellence are instigated and nurtured. Our hands-on experience educational models are constantly reviewed and developed. The quality of our curriculum in all departments is maintained through benchmarking with those at peer educational institutions and through seeking partnership in undergraduate and graduate programs with reputable international universities. Our engagement in the continuing national reviews by the quality assurance agencies at the Ministry of Higher Education and international program accreditation further enrich the continuous curriculum development and provide credibility for our degrees.

We are currently providing distinguished bachelor’s degrees in Law, Architectural Engineering & Design, and Business. We are also considering expansion to other offerings and graduate degrees to satisfy the needs of the local and regional current and future job markets. We constantly engage in discussions with the industry to prepare our students with the knowledge, attitudes, and attributes that enhance their employability especially in light of an anticipated dynamic future job environment. Our strategic dimensions foster a culture of research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Furthermore, our facilities are growing to accommodate the increasing number of our students and the particular spatial needs in major courses.
