Academicians and education experts have lauded the initiative of the Jeddah Community College (JCC) to offer expatriate students an opportunity to study in the Kingdom. Starting October 2009, they will be able to study for Associate Degrees from King Abdul Aziz University (KAU).
“This step will go a long way in opening the doors of education for all communities in Jeddah and will be a cost-saving measure for many parents. It will bring students in contact with international teachers and hence, bring about the development of their minds in the right direction,” said Irfan Ahmed, marketing manager of KAU. “Students can contact me by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or on mobile no. 0501372843,” he added.
