Kuwait delivers medical aid to Gaza Strip
‘Interior’ agrees to provide work permits to 300 teachers on visit UK grants 115 seats for Kuwaiti medical students

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 9: After refusing to transfer the visit visas of 300 male and female teachers to work permits under Ministry of Education even though the teachers passed the interviews, Ministry of Interior eventually agreed to reconsider its decision and provide the teachers with work permits in collaboration with Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor, reports Al-Anba daily quoting reliable sources.

They revealed that there was confusion in the Ministry of Interior regarding this matter as some officials suggested reactivating the process of overseas recruitment for meeting the shortage in the educational sector while some others recommended the secondment system which is implemented in some neighboring countries.

The officials eventually agreed to issue work permits to the teachers who passed the interviews and collaborate with Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor to bring them to Kuwait soon in order for them to join the training courses that are usually held for new staff before the start of an academic year. Meanwhile, the sources revealed that Ministry of Education is currently in a state of chaos and disorder due to delays in the maintenance and restoration activities in schools, as well as delay in obtaining school books.

Meanwhile, Britain has granted Kuwaiti medical students an additional 45 seats for the next academic year, taking the total number of seats up to 115, Kuwait Cultural Office in London announced Saturday. “The seats are for students seeking to study medicine and dentistry,” Head of Cultural Office Mohmmad Al-Hajiri told KUNA.

He pointed out that Kuwait has received the biggest number of seats for medical students at British universities. “Out of 450 seats allocated for foreign students, Kuwaitis have got 115.” He advised aspirant students to go to the website of the Kuwaiti Cultural Office in London to see the conditions to choose their major. He noted that students must pass ILETS tests with appropriate grades to be accepted by each university. For further information and counseling, Al-Hajiri asked students to access the Kuwaiti Cultural Office website.
