About the Study Abroad Program


Kuwait University has developed an exchange partnership with academic institutions across the world. This allows Kuwait University both graduate and undergraduate students (outbound exchange students) to study abroad, and equally gives the same opportunity for international students (inbound exchange students) to come to study at Kuwait University.

The study abroad program is administered, functioned and run under the supervision of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. These pages provide students of Kuwait university and interested international students with relevant information about the study abroad program.
