General Descriptions per Broader Subject Area External Scholarships

Monday, 19 May 2014 04:16


While competitively applying for a scholarship at undergraduate level through the Higher Education Admission Center, you can rank your program preferences, provided you meet the selection criteria, by selecting minimum 12 and maximum 40 programs offered at selected overseas Higher Education Institutions in certain study destinations (external scholarships and grants) and/or at one of the Oman Higher Education Institutions (internal scholarships, seats and grants).


Nobody can predict whether you will be competitively selected for one of your preferred options in your list, as you will be selected based on academic merit (grades) while there are a limited number of seats per subject area. However, you are strongly advised to rank your preferences based on the program you prefer and not primarily based on a certain preferred study destination and/or University. It is therefore crucial to make a well-informed decision when it comes to choosing the type of degree program you wish to study at a Higher Education Institution as it has to suit to your own talents and interests. Please note that this document concerns only the general descriptions of broader subject areas as mentioned in the external scholarship section of the HEAC guidebook for the academic year 2014/15. You are strongly advised to do further research into the specific courses and consult your careers advisors and other people who are aware of your specific talents and interests.


The content of this section (external scholarships) has been researched and provided to the Higher Education Admission Center (HEAC) by the External Scholarships Department and the Directorate-General for Scholarships in cooperation with its overseas representatives, Oman Ministry of Higher Education. While every effort has been made to ensure that the content of this document is accurate and up-to-date, changes might be periodically made. These changes will be uploaded to the Higher Education Admission Centre website.


Undergraduate External Scholarships cover up to the normal program duration on condition that the recipient maintains a record of good academic performance and attendance.
