We at Gulf College always endeavour to enhance and strengthen the academic knowledge of our students through perseverance, hard work, innovation and creative ideas. We also focus on strengthening the critical thinking skills and analytical ability of our students. This is done through knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing using various sources pertaining to higher education and related to the higher education programmes we deliver. Our perseverance in understanding and delivering the latest internationally recognised higher education programmes has given us a distinctive edge and has enabled us to perform with distinguished quality.Furthermore, we work to strengthen our participation in the sustained development of the Omani economy which embarked from its renaissance on a series of successful five-year development plans devised by the Omani government which has always been inspired by the wise and longsighted vision of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, Allah bless him.One of our main aims is to equip our graduates with ethical principles and commitment to follow the academic route in life.This is achieved through direct interactions to gain international experience in the fields of science and technology and at the same time to capitalise, maintain and learn from our rich culture, heritage and history. We train and educate our students to think freely and with wisdom to strengthen their sense of responsibility and we guide them on basic principles focused on developing their personality, getting used to administering themselves and on improving their personal initiatives and skills. The College has been taking care of these aspects since its establishment by forming various Gulf College activity groups.Our vision is to contribute in developing the future direction of higher education in Oman, producing graduates with the ability to think, achieve and excel in research and entrepreneurship.Our mission is to offer internationally recognised and innovative academic qualifications that are appropriate to the needs of the students, the job market and meet the international standards.Gulf College International Students’ Ambassador Club is a new College initiative proposed by the Centre for Career Guidance and Alumni Affairs and Gulf College international undergraduate students.Ambassadors are students who are currently studying at Gulf College and who have chosen to represent the college in the world.
