Thanks AlOnSi for the pic. It's good to see that they've continued construction. They were really lucky in getting this location. Too bad AUK was not as lucky :tongue2:

I heard that AUK was initially given a piece of land in Shadadiya but they requested another one. Therefore were given a piece of land in Ardiya next to Jaber Al Ahmed Stadium. But they already have a good main campus in Salmiyah.

hey.

the second phase of GUST will include the construction of a second building and an expansion of facilities to inrease the student size from 3400 to 5500 and the faculty size from 200 to 400. these have been the only released facts at the moment, but i'm sure that more will be available after Phase I opens.

Nice projects. I have some friends who go to just. isn't it a college for people with lower than average marks (sort of like the College of North Atlantic in Qatar)?

I think that this college allows people with below average marks but in return will not graduate these students until they become competent enough :)

Yeah furthermore I've heard that GUST is getting harder every year. They were easy at the beginning just like the American University of Sharjah but AUS is like extremely hard at the moment.

GUST doesn't give regular diplomas it gives bachelor degrees :)
