May Allah Almighty be praised, and peace and blessings be upon the most honorable of all prophets and messengers, Prophet Mohammed, and all His family and companions.

Dear valuable students of the Joint First Year at Umm Al-Qura University;

Thanks to Allah in the first place and then to efforts exerted by our splendid leaders, our country has been a home for tremendous potentials, ideas and talented youths, who are full of vigor and vitality. Actually, you, the youth, are our real investment, upon which our country could build its future on bases of innovation, creativity, leadership and excellence.

The UQU Joint First Year Deanship has been keen on providing the best and most cutting-edge curricula, courses and activities for students on a continuous basis and reviewing such materials periodically to ensure that they are consistent with global standards of quality and academic accreditation.

The deanship’s vision, mission and strategic objectives are meant to hone skills of students, who successfully passed the Joint First Year, improve their performance, instill values of loyalty and patriotism in their souls, and help them build a balanced character in order to participate in the progress and prosperity of the community.

There is no doubt that students are required to exert more efforts, show diligence and discipline and make use of the supportive environment at UQU Joint First Year Deanship in order to fulfill the deanship’s vision, mission and objectives. Students will realize the importance of studying at UQU when they are integrated into the labor market and have a leading position amongst their counterparts thanks to their valuable knowledge, skills and behaviors.

The university administration, represented in His Excellency the President of UQU Dr. Bakri bin Maatouq Assan and other valuable Vice-Presidents, has been interested in providing

generous support and continuous follow-up for students, the matter which prompted all employees of the Joint First Year Deanship to work hard and show diligence.

May Allah make us a reason for the renaissance and development of our country and help us all do to all that pleases Him. He, exalted and glorified be He, listens and responds!
