Arrowad for Higher Education
Arrowad for Higher Education has been established as an umbrella for Arrowad's higher education activities. These activities fall into three main areas: post-secondary school education, research, and community service.
Establishing this company came as a step forward aligned with Vision 2030 as well as the Saudi National Transformation Program. In this ambitious vision, the education sector is expected to receive a remarkable public-to-private shift.
Currently the government supports 94% of the high school graduates in their pursuit of university education. According to Aafaq plan of the Ministry of Education and based on the current trends, this percentage will be lowered to 75%. The remaining 25% will be supported through alternative programs such as the internal scholarships programs. Arrowad Group was among the developers of Aafaq 2029 for higher education.
Arrowad for Higher Education was established with this vision in mind.
Arrowad obtained the approval of the Ministry of Education to establish three colleges offering bachelor's degrees in 9 majors.
The project objectives are aligned with the Kingdom’s strategy to expand and develop the higher education system. It will not be just another higher education institution; rather we will build on our 3 decades history of success in education to establish state-of-the-art colleges in Engineering, Law and Business.
