Why should Bahrain be your destination?

History

Bahrain has a long history that dates back to ancient times. Bahrain is believed to have been the home of the lost civilization of Dilmun, often labeled the Garden of Eden, dating back to the third millennium BC. The Dilmun civilization eventually succumbed to the influence of the Roman Empire as Alexander the Great commissioned two ships to arrive to Bahrain and use the island as a base for trade routes due to its strategic location. Historical records provide evidence that the island was termed land of “a million palm trees” and revealed the existence of natural springs of fresh water, which explains the name Bahrain, which means in Arabic “two seas” (fresh and sea waters).

Bahrain embraced Islam peacefully and willingly after the Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) sent an envoy to introduce the religion to the island. The people of Bahrain played a significant role in Islamic conquests and provided expertise in navigation and sailing. Evidence of the ancient civilizations is still present in Bahrain, such as the Khamis Mosque and the ancient forts and burial grounds.

In 1783, Ahmed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa returned to Bahrain and gained status as a leader. Bahrain pioneered the development of education in the region with the establishment its first school for boys in 1919, quickly followed by a school for girls in the same year. The discovery of oil in 1932 accelerated the development of the island. Bahrain gained full independence from the British on August 15, 1971.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is a constitutional monarchy. The Head of State is His Highness King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, the Crown Prince and the Prime Minister, Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa.

Why choose Bahrain for your studies?

Bahrain has grown substantially in the past 10 years. As the country realized that its oil reserves were diminishing, and were no longer a dependable source for the countries’ income, Bahrain channeled its efforts into diversifying its economy: through a very welcoming environment for entrepreneurs, the development of land reclaimed projects (Amwaj Islands, Durat Al Bahrain), through the development of tourism and by becoming an international banking center and a regional capital for Islamic Banking. Bahrain has also substantially developed in terms of technology and information systems. The Bahrain International Circuit (Formula 1) also promotes the Kingdom as a successful international racing event.

Bahrain is a true multicultural nation and has the reputation of being the most liberal country in the region. As a legacy of the British presence, the English language is the most common language spoken in the Kingdom after Arabic. Along its fast modernization, the country is very attached to its tradition and its national treasures (archeological digs and forts).
