Academic Abuses : Oman Bans Four Malaysian Universities

KUALA LUMPUR: The Higher Education Ministry of Oman has banned four Malaysian universities due to alleged academic and administrative abuses by the varsities.

The universities are Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), SEGi University, Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, and Binary University of Management and Entrepreneurship.

In total, there are 378 Omani students enrolled in the four universities.

The Times of Oman, in its report, stated that the Committee for the Recognition of Non-Omani Higher Education Institutions and the Equivalence of Educational Qualifications in the Oman Higher Education Ministry had issued a decision to stop dealing with these universities.

It said Omani students were not allowed to attend the educational institutions following the decision.

“The decision is due to the various alleged abuses by the universities,” it said.

Oman’s cultural attache to Malaysia, Yahya Salam Al Mundhari, said the reason for the withdrawals were due to alleged academic and administrative abuses.

“Most of these reasons are academic and administrative, including the existence of complaints against these universities by some of the Omani students studying there (in Malaysia),” said Yahya.

“These universities are not complying with some of the laws of the country of scholarship such as registering students, allowing them to study on tourist visas, and most of these universities are unresponsive and not cooperating with the Cultural Mission in solving the challenges facing Omani students,” he was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, in an immediate reaction, USIM deputy vice-chancellor (academic and international) Prof Datuk Dr Zulkiple Abdul Ghani said the university has yet to receive any official information on the ban from Oman’s Higher Education Ministry or its embassy.

“The issue was only made aware to us through news reports from Times of Oman.
