About the institution

The Ara­bi­an Gulf Uni­ver­si­ty (AGU) was estab­lished in 1979 in the King­dom of Bahrain to sup­port the human devel­op­ment needs of the Gulf Coop­er­a­tion Coun­cil (GCC) coun­tries and address the socioe­co­nom­ic chal­lenges fac­ing the region. The uni­ver­si­ty devotes itself to offer­ing mod­ern and inno­v­a­tive aca­d­e­m­ic and research pro­grams built on the belief that uni­ver­si­ty and high­er edu­ca­tion are cru­cial in equip­ping the GCC soci­ety with the knowl­edge and skills need­ed to be com­pet­i­tive in the glob­al econ­o­my. The AGU’s mis­sion is to pre­pare health cadres with glob­al com­pe­ten­cies that meet the needs of indi­vid­u­als, fam­i­lies, and com­mu­ni­ties in the Arab Gulf states, con­duct research address­ing their health pri­or­i­ties, pro­vide them with strate­gic stud­ies and con­sul­ta­tions, and build region­al and glob­al partnerships.
