President's Message

In my capacity as President of the Royal University for Women, it is a privilege and honour to welcome you to the University - a university “where women excel” – a clear motto dedicated to the advancement of women.  I do hope you will enjoy browsing through our webpages and finding out more about the opportunities we can offer you to take your career to the next stage.

The Royal University for Women (RUW) is an established institution built on a strong foundation of quality and rigour.  We are proud of the fact that we are the first private university in the Kingdom of Bahrain to receive HEC National Accreditation.  RUW also meets all the quality assurance requirements for Institutional Review by Education and Training Quality Authority (BQA).  These are strong indicators of our commitment to high-quality education that is relevant for the 21st century. 

We offer programmes in Business and Management, in Law, and in Creative Art and Design – all carefully selected to ensure relevance to market needs and future job opportunities.  Our Bachelor of Law is the only bi-lingual (Arabic/English) programme in the Kingdom; our BA Fashion Design is the only fashion design programme in Bahrain and our College of Business and Financial Sciences offers a range of exciting programmes including the newly launched MBA. 

At RUW, we are proud of our strong business and industry links as well as our academic partnerships with reputable institutions across the world.  This ensures that we remain current, relevant and connected…all critical characteristics of a modern, vibrant higher education institution.   

Most importantly though, we are proud of our students.  Our alumni are excellent ambassadors and have gone on to set up their own entrepreneurial initiatives or take leading roles in both private and public sectors.  Our current students have demonstrated agility and perseverance in continuing their educational journeys despite the challenges of the global pandemic and our new students are excited to join and are a welcome addition to the RUW family.

Please do take the time to view our campus tour video as we are privileged to have a state of the art campus, with amazing facilities including a well resourced learning centre with physical as well as online collections and quiet study spaces, a Moot Room, gym, swimming pool, dining outlets and many student relaxation spaces.  All this helps ensure an exciting and challenging learning environment for our students.   

The remarkable achievements of RUW over the years would not have been possible without the hard work, commitment and dedication of the academic faculty, administrative teams and the unconditional support of our governance bodies.  It is their belief in the mission of RUW and their commitment to giving every student individual attention that makes RUW so special.  I urge you to find out more by browsing our webpages, following us on our social media platforms and getting in touch – we will always be happy to connect.

On a final note, I am looking forward to welcoming you on campus soon but for the time being, please do take up every opportunity to engage.

Stay safe, stay healthy!

Prof. Yusra Mouzughi
