RUW Reduces Fees To Help Current Students During COVID-19
Royal University for Women (‘RUW”) has announced that in addition to the numerous measures it has taken to support students during the COVID19 crisis, that it will also be extending its support to ease the financial strain that the Pandemic has caused the community.
RUW is now offering a 10% discount on the current semester’s fees to existing eligible students, as well as an easy installment plan.
Commenting on the announcement, Royal University for Women Acting President, Dr. David Stewart, said: “This is the least we can do for our community at this time. The financial strain that COVID19 is causing citizens of Bahrain is very real so we do understand that many families in Bahrain may be having difficulty making making educational fee payments”.
In addition to financial measures, the University established a Special Task Force team on March 9th to assess and monitor the situation, and implemented a comprehensive COVID19 Crisis Plan designed to protect the health and safety of its students, faculty and the community, whilst supporting students in their efforts to continue their studies and complete the academic year.
With the unswerving support and commitment of the RUW Board of Trustees, we are doing absolutely everything we can to support the RUW community and help them through these challenging times. We have moved all classes onto our virtual learning space, Moodle, and set up a dedicated online support channel. We have also made changes to the grading requirements, and immediately ceased internships. Although we have not had any reported cases of COVID-19 in the RUW family, we continue to take every precaution”. Dr Stweart concluded
