Kuwaiti students studying Engineering and Informatics at the University of Sussex met Dr Fahad Al Mudhaf, the Cultural Attaché of Kuwait, on campus this week.

The University is a long-term partner of the Gulf embassies, and hosts students from across the Middle East and North Africa, including students sponsored by the Kuwait Embassy.  

Kuwaiti students study a variety of subjects at Sussex, although the School of Engineering and Informatics tend to host the majority.  

Professor Ian Wakeman, who hosted the visit on Monday (19 November) alongside Dr Paul Newbury, shared the research development areas of the school with the Cultural Attaché.  

Professor Wakeman said: "Our Kuwaiti students do very well within our school, and I was delighted that Dr Fahad Al Mudhaf was able to discover for himself the range of learning experiences that we provide. We look forward to strengthening our relationship further."

As part of the collaborative visit - organised jointly by the International Office and Study Group - Dr Fahad Al Mudhaf also visited the Vice-Chancellor’s Office and the International Study Centre on campus.
