Introduction

Palestinian universities have worked to ensure that the skills and knowledge of their graduates are appropriate and sufficient for local and global labor markets. They also provide graduates with the required competences to support sustainable development within Palestinian society in various fields, including: economic, political, social and others.

Palestine Ahliya University (PAU) is the fastest growing and most developed institution in this sector. It includes six main faculties: Faculty of Administrative and Financial Sciences, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Information Technology, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and Faculty of Applied Sciences. Since its inception, the University strives for excellence and creativity in choosing appropriate academic programs that are needed and required by local and global labor markets and thus increase the employment opportunities for PAU graduates.

The University has a highly reputable academic staff with distinctive teaching and research experience. In addition to that, the University provides scholarships to some graduates to complete their graduate studies abroad, and encourages lecturers with graduate degrees to obtain a PhD from regional or international universities. PAU invests in creating meaningful linkages and partnerships with the local private sector to support graduates with employment opportunities in addition to creating academic and research partnerships and bridges with local, regional, & international academic and research institutions.

Parallel to the development of new academic programs, PAU has sought to equip the University’s laboratories with advanced technology and equipment in order to meet the highest international standards of quality. PAU pays significant attention to the unique needs of students as they are representing the educational outcomes of the University. The University has developed strategies and policies that guarantee the highest academic level for the students. These policies include the manner in which acceptance  cumulative and specialization rates are calculated. In addition to that, the students have to pass university acceptance exams in order to join the required specialization at PAU.

Academic Affairs focuses on improving the academic and practical competencies of the students as required by the labor market, through tuning the educational inputs in an accurate manner and supporting business incubators within the University. To achieve that, we continuously upgrade the academic staff at the university in different fields, including: the use of modern, technological & creative teaching methods, and research opportunities.
