Winds of Change Blowing Across the Educational Front

Abstract:
WINDS of change are blowing across the Kingdom's educational front. From the emphasis on the arts and humanities in the past, there is a perceptible shift in the focus, especially after Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah ascended the throne.

The Ministry of Higher Education has also embarked on an expansion program with its decision to establish in the near future 15 new colleges, including two medical colleges, in Riyadh and Al-Kharj and an institute of tourism and a nanotechnology center in Jeddah.
