Ahlia University will provide guidance and assistance to all international students that wish to apply. Once you have submitted a formal application and after you have received a letter of offer or acceptance, the international team will assist students with visa and immigration documents. This process may take anywhere between 1 week and 2 months, and is entirely contingent on the outcome of the application lodged with the General Directorate of Nationality, Immigration, and Passports.
Applicants for any of the degree programmes offered by Ahlia University will not be considered fully registered unless they have obtained a Higher Education Council (HEC) number. Once the applicant is accepted, the University will proceed to forward the application to the HEC.
Students need to provide authentication and/or endorsement of their transcripts and certificates, as part of the HEC request. This process may take some time, so students must be prepared to provide the HEC with original copies of their transcripts and/or certificates, accredited by their country’s Ministry of Education, to proceed with the request for endorsement.
