“Our sympathies at this time are with our friends and colleagues at Muscat University and the people of Oman. Cranfield will do all it can to support both the staff and students at Muscat during this difficult period after the Sultan’s passing. We look forward to continuing to work with Professor Yusra Mouzughi and her team as they realise the Sultan’s vison for education in Oman.”
Professor Sir Peter Gregson, Chief Executive and Vice-Chancellor of Cranfield University.
