Information for Kuwaiti students wishing to study a postgraduate programme at Cranfield University

Cranfield University has a vibrant international community and is historically a popular destination for students from Kuwait. We currently have 9 students from Kuwait studying with us.

As an exclusively postgraduate university with a student to staff ratio - 7:1 that is one of the best for any university in the UK and the world, Cranfield represents a unique offering for Kuwaiti students thinking of studying in the UK. Kuwaiti students at Cranfield benefit from excellent teaching delivered by our world-renowned academics, state-of-the art facilities and real-life industry projects with leading global organisations. 

Cranfield also offers Kuwaiti students the opportunity to enjoy campus life and get involved in a wide variety of activities run by the Cranfield Student Association. Our experience of over four decades of working with students from the Middle East has enabled us to cater for their specific academic, religious and dietary needs.

The majority of eating outlets on campus provide Halal certified food and a mosque is available on campus that is run by the Cranfield Islamic Society. The campus has a very family-friendly environment with on-campus facilities such as a crèche, pre-school and shops. Milton Keynes is located just outside of the Cranfield campus.
