In total, there are 378 Omani students enrolled in the four universities.

The Malaysian daily cited The Times of Oman which reported that the Committee for the Recognition of Non-Omani Higher Education Institutions and the Equivalence of Educational Qualifications in the Oman Higher Education Ministry had issued a decision to stop dealing with these universities.

It said Omani students were not allowed to attend the educational institutions following the decision.
“The decision is due to the various alleged abuses by the universities,” it said.

Oman’s cultural attache to Malaysia, Yahya Salam Al Mundhari, said:
“Most of these reasons are academic and administrative, including the existence of complaints against these universities by some of the Omani students studying there (in Malaysia).

“These universities are not complying with some of the laws of the country of scholarship such as registering students, allowing them to study on tourist visas, and most of these universities are unresponsive and not cooperating with the Cultural Mission in solving the challenges facing Omani students,” he was quoted as saying.Follow us on Social Media
