Saudi Arabia’s ambitious Vision 2030 project is well under way, and the country is quickly developing into a more advanced, modernized economy and popular destination. The planning and governing agencies associated with Vision 2030 will play a significant role in determining Saudi Arabian study abroad aspirant’s mobility during the next years.
This year, there were 150,000 open seats in KSA’s universities, creating a significant demand for study abroad opportunities. The majority of Saudi students enroll in undergraduate programmes at public tertiary institutions that are free of charge.
In addition to a sizable number of community colleges, women’s colleges, and vocational institutions, KSA is home to about 50 public and private universities. Five public universities account for about half of all enrollments, and five private colleges enroll almost half of all students in the private sector. There are about 200 English-language bachelor’s, master’s, and PhD programmes offered by major city universities for the study abroad aspirants.
Applications for the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Scholarship Program for the academic year 2023/2024 are now being accepted by the Ministry of Education until May 5, 2023. There are numerous opportunities for foreign universities and colleges conducting research on the skills required by Vision 2030, the programmes that Saudi institutions specialise in, and the government departments responsible for various economic sectors to introduce new programmes on a regular basis.
