The University of Manchester is one of the UK's most popular destinations for students from Kuwait. We currently have 57 Kuwaiti students studying at the University and over 300 students from the Persian Gulf region.
Given our experience in hosting students from the Middle East, we are confident that we are well equipped to meet the specific academic, religious and dietary needs of students coming from this region.
Manchester is a vibrant multicultural city with a large Muslim population.
There are two prayer rooms provided on campus and there are a number of Mosques located near the University and student areas.
Many of our restaurants serve a selection of Halal certified meals and sandwiches, and many front line staff have completed training on how to deliver Halal food.
Our students from Kuwait are studying at all levels in a broad range of disciplines with the following subject areas proving particularly popular:
- Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science
- Life Sciences
- Electrical and Electronic Engineering
