Dr Mohammed Hamed al Sadi, Assistant Dean for Admissions & Technical Support, said that SQU is ready to welcome the students for the new academic year. The new students will commence their new journey at SQU from Sunday. “The process of completing admission procedures at the university is expected to start through the acceptance station (Milad), where the students can access the website through www.squ.edu.om/meelad and fill up the application electronically without physically being present at the university,” he said.
The orientation programme, which will begin on Sunday at SQU Cultural Centre aims to connect the new students with the university community by introducing them to the university colleges and other support units.
