Ms. Huda Alhalwachi, Manager: Enrolments, Progression & Results, urged the students to visit the Bahrain Polytechnic website and confirm the dates of adding, dropping, and withdrawing of courses. She also urged the students to wear their university cards all the time, as well as abiding by the rules and regulations of the Polytechnic.
Additionally, Ms. Alhalwachi confirmed that the Polytechnic’s administrative and academic staff has taken all necessary measures to receive the students, especially since the Polytechnic has accepted its largest batch of new students since 2012 (around 600 students).
To guarantee that the quality of education won’t be affected by this large acceptance, the Polytechnic made sure that the appropriate amount of academic staff are available to teach these students studying various programmes.
Providing a suitable studying environment has also been a matter of importance for the Polytechnic, as it recently added a number of laboratories with the latest equipment, while maintaining its current ones. In addition, several buildings and classrooms have been implemented, following the best occupational safety standards, to increase the capacity for students.
This assures the students’ comfort while studying at the Polytechnic which seeks to meet the Bahrain 2030 Vision, government action plan 2015-2018, and its strategic plan.
Ms. Alhalwachi concluded by expressing her deep regret for the students who were not able to be admitted to the Polytechnic, especially since the selection process was competitive, as well as other reasons such as not passing the entrance exam, limited vacancies, or not meeting the admission conditions and wished them success in their quest for higher education.
It is important to note that the Polytechnic is committed to the regulations of the Higher Education Law and its keenness to implement the best international practices at the institution.
