This Thursday evening, UQU closes the first admission stage to the academic year 1438-1439 A.H., which started early last Monday via the unified admission online portal. This is the most important admission stage for students seeking to attend various paths at the university, including direct admission or joining the preparatory year at the university's headquarter in Makkah, as well as in its branches at Al Jumum, Al-Lith, Adham and Al Qunfudha.

Upon instruction from chairman of the Supreme Committee for Admission, UQU President Dr. Bakri Bin M'atoog Bin Bakri Assas, an online operational room was created to respond to all admission-related inquiries submitted to Deanship of Admission and Registration as well as IT. “This joint room aims to ensure submitting applications properly via the unified admission online portal”, stated Dr. Assas.

“The joint room features hi-tech developers and staff to answer all admission-related inquiries.

All applications will be electronically sorted according to allocated ratios.” Dr. Assas said. He also hailed the efforts of all committees involved in admission this year.
