Welcome to Bahrain Polytechnic!

The New Student Orientation, or as we call it “Polyentation”, is an essential part of your Polytechnic experience and provides a pathway for success.

POLYENTATION is an informative and fun-packed introduction to the Polytechnic over one or two days, designed to help new students make a successful academic and social transition into the Polytechnic community.

All new students are required to attend.

Take this opportunity to meet fellow students and make new friends, experience the campus facilities through exciting games and activities. You will also meet some of the key staff and  tutors, and most importantly, be better prepared with the information on services for students and the Polytechnic requirements before the academic year commences. We look forward to seeing you at POLYENTATION 2017.
