Mar 04, 2020

KFAS Academy – A fully-owned subsidiary of the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) -- announced it will be offering their full line of their Higher Education online courses for free throughout the current school closure period in Kuwait. The decision came about to help minimize the effect of school closure on the learning journey of University students and high-school students getting ready to enter Universities.

The courses covering Maths Placement test, Precalculus, Biology and English Vocabulary Enrichment will all be offered for free as long as school closure is in effect. Students are welcome to simply access the Academy’s website ( and sign up to enrol in the courses.

Dr. Ziad Najem, CEO of KFAS Academy said: “Our social commitment demands that we support all measures being taken to contain the virus and to help reducing any long-term negative effect caused by these measures. By providing our education course for free we hope to encourage and support students in Kuwait to continue their learning by providing access to online courses that can be used by both educators and students while not being able to attend their institution”.

Dr. Najem added: “there are many advantages to e-learning, but perhaps the most important one now is that it overcomes the need for everyone to be in the same place for learning to happen. This is in addition to other features that include offering educational methods that are more appropriate to the learner's ability and circumstances, the multiplicity of means of communication between the teacher and the student, in addition to training the learner to self -learning which is an essential tool to prepare them for their professional career.”

Dr. Najem concluded by adding: “It is about time that Kuwait institutionalizes and regulate both digital and online learning.”
