A message from Brian Moran, Dean of Graduate Affairs

Graduate Affairs is responsible for several key aspects of the student life-cycle before, during, and after study at KAUST. The principal units in Graduate Affairs are:

  • Admissions
  • Alumni Affairs
  • Graduate Development and Services

Admissions contributes, with a broad array of stakeholders, to the design of the admissions process and is responsible for its implementation. KAUST's Alumni Office focuses on maintaining a high fidelity data base of our alumni as well as engaging alumni through our Alumni Affairs web site, and through an annual event at the Winter Enrichment Program.

Graduate Development and Services provide a wide range of activities and services that contribute to student development, well-being, and residential and recreational life on campus. Operations provides essential HR, finance, and support services to students and provides system and integrated data management support to Graduate Affairs.

Several of the units described above combine as cross-functional teams to handle student on-boarding, student orientation, and student exiting. Graduate Affairs plays an important role in Commencement and associated events and activities.

Please don't hesitate to contact us at admissions@kaust.edu.sa for more information.
