Welcome from the Chairman and the President

Chairman's Welcome

"My vision, and that of my fellow members of the Board of Trustees, has been to establish an institution of higher learning that will provide knowledge and practical skills to contribute in the development of Kuwait. The Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) is the culmination of this vision. Its core philosophy is ‘enabling human potential within a culture of care’. We want our students to be successful and to feel that they are essential as individuals.

ACK provides internationally recognized qualifications and is fortunate to have an excellent team of faculty and staff to deliver its programs.

ACK programs provide an experiential learning model that gives students: knowledge, skills and a positive attitude. Our goal is to enable ACK students to be effective graduates from their first day at work.

ACK offers diploma and degree programs in Business and Engineering as well as other training and professional opportunities. These programs, though practical in approach, develop critical thinking and problem solving capabilities in students.

I wish to welcome you to ACK’s website and encourage you to explore the material on offer.

Wishing you success."

Mr. Abdullah A. O. Al-Sharhan
Chairman, Australian College of Kuwait

 President's Welcome

"The Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) is proud to provide a unique tertiary educational system in the country that encompasses both applied and theoretical higher educational learning.  We are also proud of our student population who are increasingly coming to join our community after graduation from school with a spectrum of GPAs up to very high levels. This in addition to the growing relations with the various sectors in the local and regional markets is a testimony of the success of our educational model.

Our administration spares no efforts in providing the academic environment that supports our students in acquiring the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need at their work place. Our classrooms, laboratories, workshops, library and other support facilities are designed with the consolidation of our mission and the benefits of our students in mind. Work is underway for a new building that will further reinforce our facilities and will include student scientific clubs that are aimed at exposing students to state of the art science and technologies.

The programs ACK offers in Business, Engineering, and Aviation are to the highest educational quality and acknowledged locally, regionally, and internationally. Our faculty members are appointed according to strict selection processes that ensure their academic and industrial competencies and ability to provide an experiential learning model. 

The continuous curriculum improvement within the various academic departments ensures that our programs are in perpetual synchronization with the dynamic changes and expectations of the market. This market-led curriculum development approach enhances the employability of our graduating students. ACK supports our students in their job pursuits and in their articulation to higher educational degrees beyond those offered on campus. 

ACK endorses the holistic mode of learning which embraces curricular and extracurricular formations.  Accordingly, our students are encouraged to excel not only in the academic fields but also in other personal development activities. We celebrate our students who have acquired awards in many arts, humanitarian, and sport events nationally and internationally. Scholarships in the form of tuition support are also awarded from our College to selected high academic achievers.  Furthermore, scholarships to continue for Masters Degrees in Australia are now available for our eligible student graduates with distinguished academic performance. 

We invite you to join our next cohort of students at ACK and assure you that through your diligence and our culture of care, we shall adopt your dreams and help you in time to make them come true."

Professor Mohamad J. Terro
President, Australian College of Kuwait
