Our Mission

The mission of the Kuwait Cultural Office in Dublin is to support the educational goals of the State of
Kuwait, to establish links between educational and research institutions in both Kuwait and Ireland, and to continuously develop the educational, professional, and research programmes of both Kuwaiti individuals and institutions. The Cultural Office is also responsible for Kuwaiti students attending institutions, colleges, and universities in Ireland. Thus, the Cultural Office helps facilitate student admissions, gives student counsel, and looks after student welfare. It provides financial and moral support to students and their families in Ireland. Our supervisory activity ensures their well-being. Each student is supervised by an academic advisor who monitors the student’s progress through university. The Cultural Office is responsible for the payment of student scholarship funds, as well as their tuition fees (which are paid directly to the educational institutions), their health insurance, and their airline tickets. The Cultural Office supervises students who are studying the following programmes:

 -  English Language Programmes;
 -  Foundation Programmes;
 -  Undergraduate University / College Programmes;
 -  Graduate University / College Programmes.

Furthermore, the Cultural Office holds meetings with educators from various educational institutions and universities in Ireland in order to explore new educational opportunities and potential cooperation. To schedule an appointment to visit the Cultural Office please call 01 5310090
