Muscat University was established in 2016 as a high quality, private university. Aston University is proud to be working in partnership with Cranfield and Muscat universities to develop the next generation of leaders for Oman. 

Aston and Muscat universities are collaborating to deliver three undergraduate programmes across engineering and technology, business and management and transport and logistics that will give students a degree from each institution. The partnership between Muscat and Cranfield delivers postgraduate programmes.

Muscat University:

Aston and Muscat universities are collaborating to deliver the following undergraduate programmes, providing students with a unique double degree – one from each institution. 

Entry criteria

All students must meet the academic and English language requirements for the undergraduate degree programme. 

The Muscat University Foundation Programme  is a one-year course designed for students who have successfully completed 12 years of high school education, and therefore require an additional year of study to prepare them for entry to their chosen degree at Muscat University.

The partnership between Aston, Cranfield and Muscat universities is to deliver high quality, research-informed degrees that are relevant to the economic and social priorities of Oman and the surrounding region and which produce public and private sector leaders of the future.  Aston is committed to developing this tripartite collaboration by seeking further opportunities on research collaboration, professional training and executive education.

The Oman Education Council approved the establishment of Muscat University in April 2016, and the Ministry of Higher Education granted its licence to operate in October 2016.
