About the Deanship

- 2019/09/08

There are two major headquarters for the UQU Deanship of Admission and Registration in Makkah (male students HQ in Al-Abdiyyah, and female students HQ in Al-Zahir).

Because the Deanship covers a wide array of university activities and disciplines, as well as the increasing number of students, there arose the need to establish branches for deanship in the UQU campuses outside Makkah, so that those branches could complete the admission processes for students of those regions, thus relieving the burden of moving to the Deanship's main HQs.

Noteworthy, the Admission Deanship HQ in Abdiyyah is the head office of the deanship, from which all activities relating to admission and registration for all students (both males and females) stem. The deanship is run by the Dean of Admission and Registration, and there are a number of vice deans (males and females) reporting to him, each of whom is responsible for certain departments, and is entitled to a managing specific affairs as per the powers entitled to him/her.
