BAHRAIN: Warning to private HE institutions

Private education institutions have been given a deadline to meet new standards – or they will face penalties or be closed down – reports the Gulf Daily News. They have until the end of the current academic year, in June, to comply with financial and academic requirements stipulated by the new higher education law. Institutions have been given three years to fulfil buildings and educational facilities requirements, or have their licences revoked.

Education Minister and High Education Council chairman Dr Majid Al Nuaimi told the Shura Council that private higher education institutions were being dealt with according to a professional law that obliges institutions to fulfil certain financial and academic requirements and criteria.
