A successfully imported Australian model of excellence

Article - September 30, 2011
When the Private Universities Law was passed in 2000, the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) was the first to apply and be granted a license.
 The college was the realization of the vision of its chairman, Abdullah Abdulmohsen Al-Sharhan to provide specialized vocational education. “Vocational education is the reason so many young people succeed in their lives, as it teaches them what to do. Knowledge by itself is not sufficient; you need the skills to apply that knowledge,” says Al-Sharhan.

Through its partnerships with leading Australian universities and colleges, ACK is a pioneer in the 2+2 model, where students can study two years in Kuwait and receive a vocational diploma that allows them to enter the job market immediately or to continue their specialized studies for another two years to earn an academic degree either in Kuwait or abroad. ACK, via its auspice agreements, offers internationally recognized and accredited diplomas and degrees.

ACK’s expanding campus provides state-of-the-art training facilities, including a ground-based Boeing 737-200 aircraft and a cutting-edge marine simulator.

Al-Sharhan would like ACK’s graduates not only to go into the engineering and business sectors as employees, but also become entrepreneurs who can succeed in creating new projects. He emphasizes the importance of education for the success of Kuwait’s goals. “We are still a developing country because we have not focused enough on education. This is where we need to start,” he explains.
