International Students

The National University of Science & Technology (NU) is proud of the international students who call the National University as their home. This diversity is a key part of the success and innovation that is found here. The range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees that are offered at NU allow students from all around the world to receive a truly world-class education. For international students, part of this experience is discovering Oman and enjoying the warm welcome that characterizes the Omani people. 

Across all five campuses of the University, students have the chance to make friendships that will last a lifetime. The clubs, teams and societies are the perfect way to meet new people and develop talents. The dedicated International Students’ Office ensures that everyone feels welcome. The University gives the international students the very best academic preparation to achieve in their chosen discipline and to equip them with the knowledge and skills to make a real difference.

National University recognizes that students who come from different countries have a unique learning experience and talents and they can make a valuable contribution to spice up the university life. Besides that, the National University is committed to the welfare and successful development of its students, particularly the international students. Being away from their hometown, the international students are considered to be a special cohort of students for personal wellbeing and individual follow-up. They figured prominently in the history of its constituent colleges. Many of them ranked top in the examinations and some of them headed the student council and other non-curricular organs/clubs of the institutions. There are  career fairs  in place to ensure adequate exposure to the students for career placements and there are many instances of international students getting placed in the industry in the country.

For academic concerns, students may contact advisors, supervisors or the Heads of Departments. Student support for Personal or emotional support is always available through qualified counselors.
