Overview

The University of Nizwa (UoN) was established in the Sultanate of Oman in 2004 as a faculty governed not-for-profit private university. It is located 140 km from the national capital of Muscat in the interior region of Al-Dakhiliya near the historic former capital of Nizwa. The University seeks to provide a progressive and safe learning environment that is respectful of the traditions and values of the Sultanate. Since its inception, the guiding philosophy of UoN has been to provide students with a high quality education that prepares them to contribute meaningfully to the economic, artistic and aesthetic growth of the country. Graduates, irrespective of their majors, are expected to be capable lifelong learners with skills in numeracy, communications, critical thinking and problem solving. Alumni will possess an appreciation of their culture, values on which it is founded and shared values of humanity in general. In the short time since the inaugural class of 1200 students began taking courses on 16 October 2004 the University has expanded tremendously, both in physical size and in the number and diversity of programs offered to students. At this time the University offers over 30 undergraduate majors and 6 masters programs to a student body of nearly 6500.
