Mr. Ahmed Malalla, Bahrain Polytechnic’s Director of Registry, announced that the admission period for the next academic year 2017-18 will commence on Sunday, 16th April 2017 until Thursday, 1st June 2017, from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM, at the Polytechnic campus in Isa Town.
“The process of applying to the Polytechnic this year will be done through the internet, which has been the case for the past 4 years and received positive feedback.” added Mr. Malalla. “The applicant would just need to fill the online application form through our website (http://www.polytechnic.bh), print the signature page, pay the application fee (BD 20 non-refundable) by debit or credit card at the Student Information Centre (Building 8), and submit the required documents: an original and copy of passport and smart card, one passport size photo, high school transcript, evidence of good conduct (not more than one year old), medical examination certificate from governmental health centre.
“The Registry Directorate will then verify the documents, go through the selection process, and set a date for the entry tests.
Due to limited vacancies, the selection of applicants to Bahrain Polytechnic will be ‘very competitive’. Mr. Malalla advised that applicants who meet the minimum high school GPA requirements of at least 70% (to be provided with the graduation certificate), and pass the entry test scheduled to begin on 30th April 2017 are not guaranteed to be selected, as it depends on the programme requirements and the number of vacant seats in that year. Mr. Malalla recommends that applicants apply to more than one educational institution to ensure the potential applicant does not miss the opportunity for higher education.
Bahrain Polytechnic offers the following academic programmes: Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of International Logistics Management, Bachelor of Information and Communications Technology, Bachelor of Engineering Technology, Bachelors of Web Media, Bachelors of Visual Design.
