Education

Bahrain Education

As Bahrain continues to move from an oil-dependent economy to a more knowledge-based one, education is taking a driving seat in training the next generation of young Bahraini citizens in how to prosper in this new landscape. While education has long been a priority, the focus right now is on raising overall standards, from primary education on up. Perhaps the biggest changes taking place are in the field of higher education, with a new accreditation system being put in place by the Bahrain Higher Education Council, and the arrival of foreign universities offering courses both in partnership with domestic universities as well as at their own local campuses.

This chapter contains an interview Riyad Y Hamza, President, University of Bahrain.
