Applied Science University (ASU) is one of the leading private universities in Bahrain.
Founded in 2004 with a mission to support the Kingdom’s economic and social development, it runs 13 undergraduate and five postgraduate programmes, all approved by the Ministry of Education, and designed to develop theoretical knowledge and practical skills, focusing on STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
Currently the university has more than 3,000 students following programmes in accounting and finance, business, computer science, engineering, graphic and interior design, law, management and political science.
ASU understands the importance of having qualifications that are recognised internationally, so to address demand in Bahrain it introduced undergraduate programmes leading to British degrees:
• ASU College of Engineering with London South Bank University (LSBU):
- BEng (Hons) Architectural Design Engineering
- BEng (Hons) Civil & Construction Engineering
• ASU College of Administrative Sciences with Cardiff Metropolitan University (CMU):
- BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance
- BA (Hons) Management & Business Studies
A spokesman says: “ASU values our collaboration with the British education sector, which is recognised across the world for its quality. Our partners are well-established universities. LSBU won Entrepreneurial University of the Year in the the University Awards 2016; and CMU and LSBU were both awarded Silver in the UK government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
“As well as keeping subject knowledge updated, ASU is committed to excellent teaching practice. We are the first private university in Bahrain where over half of academic staff either have received or are preparing for the award of Fellowship by the UK’s Higher Education Academy (HEA), and we are proud to have this international recognition of our teaching standards.”
ASU guarantees a high-quality learning experience, and prepares graduates for successful careers in their chosen field so they can excel in today’s competitive global environment.
