The Ministry of Higher Education will halt higher education programs across Arab universities starting from next year.
The ministry stressed in a circular that was sent to cultural attachés in these countries to implement the decision
within the deadline following the approval of Higher Education Minister Khaled Al-Anqari.
Mohammad Al-Hizan, ministry spokesman, said the decision was taken after evaluating these programs, which they found to be available in abundance at local universities.
“The decision will be implemented at foreign universities that are not included in the King Abdullah Scholarship Program,” he said.
“The ministry will not attest certificates of students in these countries following the implementation of the decision.”
