Kuwait Launches Central College Admission Portal

The first phase of a central college admission portal has been launched in Kuwait, in an effort to modernize online services as well as information and educational infrastructure, Education Ministry announced.

Pre-university students will be able to submit online applications for higher education facilities through the portal, which will also include Kuwait University, internal and external scholarships, and the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET).

“The automated system regulates procedures for submitting applications for seats while ensuring there is no overlap and conflict between applications,” said Kuwaiti Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Hamad Abdulwahab Al Adwani.

Additionally, it ensures that each entity's approved admission requirements are met and permits individuals who have been admitted to complete all registration requirements at the educational institution where they have been accepted.

“Seats are distributed accurately and quickly through electronic linkage and coordination between higher education institutions and the concerned authorities, namely the ministries of education and interior and the Public Authority for Civil Information, in addition to the Civil Service Commission, Public Authority for Manpower and the Public Institution for Social Security,” Al Adwani added. 

The minister said the central admission portal will be launched in its first stage this year, with the goal of completing the infrastructure in full over the course of the following years.

Secretary-General of the Council of Public Universities Dr Adel Al-Mane said: “Based on the directives of Minister Al-Adwani, work has begun to implement the first phase of the central admission portal between Kuwait University and Abdullah Al Salem University, where graduates of high school and its equivalents can submit applications for admission to these two universities from July 15 until 26 through the unified electronic portal of the two universities.”

Mane explained that the method of selecting majors by applicants to the two universities will appear to each student according to their average score and according to the results of preadmission tests, if any, and the extent to which the applicant meets the conditions.

The applicant is allowed to select all the specializations available to them, whether at Kuwait University or Abdullah Al Salem University, in the order chosen by the student.
