Authorized as an institution of higher learning in May 2001 by the Ministry of Higher Education, Al Yamamah University opened its doors to male students in September 2004 and to female students in September 2006. Since its inception, the University has established itself at the forefront of educational innovation and excellence in the Kingdom. The University’s ultra modern campus provides state-of-the-art facilities and innovative instructional designs and curricula offered by international faculty from around the world.
Since the latter part of the 20th century, demand for use of English has increased exponentially in the Kingdom, and it has now become the first skill required of all new employees in the Saudi labor market. For these reasons, Al Yamamah University has entered into a partnership with INTERLINK Language Centers to provide quality instruction to accommodate the academic needs of both its students and those in the larger community wishing to improve their English language skills for personal, professional and study abroad purposes. This partnership is aimed at advancing not only English language training but also international understanding and educational exchanges between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, North America, and other countries around the world.
The INTERLINK – Al Yamamah Mission
Mutual commitment to achieving broader educational goals and providing better opportunities for Saudis persuaded YU to enter into a partnership with INTERLINK. INTERLINK underscores that commitment by providing YU with innovative English curricula and highly qualified faculty. The partnership provides a comprehensive higher education international in scope. In all their academic endeavors, both institutions will always view student success as their central focus.
