President’s Message

Greetings from Alfaisal University,

I am very proud to be president of Alfaisal University, an institution increasingly recognized as one of the best in Saudi Arabia.

Since its founding by the King Faisal Foundation in 2002 as one of the first private nonprofit, research and student-centered universities in the Kingdom, Alfaisal University has been advancing at a confident and sustainable pace to serve the community as a quality education provider in Saudi Arabia. The University has strong relationships with international and local universities, business communities and works closely with organizations to stay at the forefront of advanced pedagogical practices. Alfaisal University capitalizes on these relationships for the benefit of its students. Research, as well as recent trends, indicates that we must move from theory-based curricula to task-based curricula, allowing students to be exposed to the most up-to-date practices.

English is the language of instruction in our four colleges: Business, Engineering, Science, and Medicine. Each offers world-class undergraduate and graduate programs for the finest male and female students in the Kingdom and the Region. Located in the heart of Riyadh, the center for commerce, industry, and research, with our solid reputation and affiliations with leading hospitals and ample access to our faculty, more students are looking to launch their medical career at Alfaisal University. Alfaisal offers its students the opportunity to develop their full potential with outstanding facilities, inspiring academics and research-led teaching that will enable them to graduate as highly skilled, well-developed individuals able to transition seamlessly into the workplace.

Alfaisal University is a highly diverse and welcoming community with a beautiful campus. Big enough to have an international presence and impact, yet small enough that students are able to develop a strong sense of community with lifelong connections to friends and mentors.

Alfaisal University's rise to prominence has been the result of many factors: the contributions of talented and dedicated faculty; the energy, enthusiasm, and inventiveness of graduate and undergraduate students; the dedication and support of excellent staff; the passion of our founders to make a difference in the Kingdom and the world; and the support of our donors and partners.

I invite you to explore what Alfaisal has to offer you through our website and to discover what sets us apart from other fine universities.
I believe you'll be impressed by what our university has achieved so far, and as confident as I am in its potential to accomplish even more great things in the near future. Your prescription for success begins at Alfaisal. 

Mohammed Alhayaza
President, Alfaisal University
