The Middle East College (MEC) concluded the Orientation Programme for the Academic Year 2015/2016 where it received the new students who joined the college recently. The programme included many activities organized by Student Activities Office. The students were introduced to the college activities, throughout the whole academic year, and the students’ clubs. Moreover, the students were given an insight to all departments of the college which are related to the students and how they help to familiarize them with their new environment.
Rajaa AlQayodhi, one of the new students in Accounts and Finance programme, said: “I had a scholarship to study in Holland but I decided to change the scholarship to an internal one and chose MEC between all other colleges. After this programme I really found that this college is wonderful and I am excited to start my studies here”.
Abdullah AlHarrasi, a new student in Information Technology programme, said: “I was not sure about completing my higher education and I really thought about searching for any job but after this programme everything changed. The organizers showed us how important studying is, now I am filled with passion to complete my education at MEC and I will try my best to reach all what I ever dreamed of”.
Dr. R C Bhattacharjee, Dean of the college, also welcomed the new students, encouraged them to do their best in studying and clarified some important points that they should mind during their life in the college. At the end he wished them the best of luck and invited them to participate in the different activities which will help them to develop their talents and skills.
It is worth to be mentioned that MEC works in academic partnership with Coventry University, UK and Wolverhampton University, UK. In addition, the college has partnership agreements with different institutions around the world for an international exchange programme to provide a better chance of learning and developing the skills for its students.
