   The ethos of this college is to mould every student, into a responsible and independent citizen with strong character, integrity, and moral courage. Our aim is to develop our student’s capabilities and potential in a way that makes them career-ready and skilled to face the challenges of the 21st century and find solutions to global issues.

   At Gulf College, we place our prime stakeholders – our students, at the forefront of all our activities. Students are the focal point of all decisions and their needs form an integral part of all operations.  Our tenet is to provide students with a learning experience on par with international universities, one which is both educative and enjoyable and will remain etched in their minds as they forge ahead in their lives and careers. 

   The college is highly quality-focused. We believe in using creative and innovative approaches to enhance student experience and accomplishments.

Among them are advisors and counselors who are there always – whether it is to give a helping hand or to raise your standard to the next higher level.

   The college provides the opportunity for experiential learning through its work placement module. In lieu of experiential learning, the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation was established to nurture entrepreneurship among students. Its aim is to encourage self-starters and provide support and guidance for budding entrepreneurs.

   Gulf College has active MOU’s with CIMA and CISCO, which recognise Gulf College’s Undergraduate programs and provides preferential exemptions for students wanting to pursue these professional certifications.

   The Centre for Students Affair presents an array of opportunity for the all-round development of students. The center supports and encourages students to engage in various sports and voluntary activities that aid in the development of healthy and well-balanced individuals. 

   I welcome you to our college, to look at what we have to offer and liaise with staff to learn how we could be of service. I can assure you that Gulf College will be a great place to start your higher education, one that will help you unravel your true potential and present you with endless possibilities.
