Fruitful beginning of the new academic year


President Dr. Tariq Obaid

Time is running by and two months of sunny holidays have finished. New academic year 2014/2015 has just started. I would like to welcome our Students, the new ones and the ones who have been going through educational paths with SIST for some time. I would also like to warmly welcome University's Lecturers and the rest of SIST Staff.

It is the beginning of new challenges that each one of us is going to face throughout this academic year. I assure you that this year will be exciting and full of joyful moments, knowledge and new things to learn.

My special support goes to our final year Students, who will prepare and defend their thesis by the end of this academic year, in spring or summer 2015. I know this is a very important moment for you and it will open the door of professional world to you. I keep my fingers crossed for all of you and hope that this year will be fruitful and that your preparations to obtain your degree will go smoothly.

To our first and second year Students- I am glad that you are with us and I wish you all the best during this year, I hope that all your assessments and exams will go well and step by step get you closer to your dreamed career.

I also want to encourage our Foundation Year Students who decided to join SIST British University. They started this academic year with a visit of British Ambassador when our new Students could ask His Excellency questions and learn more about British education. I know that studying in a foreign language is not easy, I want you to know that SIST Staff and I will be there for you to help you to expand your knowledge and confidence in English.

I hope that academic year 2014/2015 will be successful for all of you.

Tariq Obaid
