The education sector in Oman has expanded rapidly from only three schools in 1970 to now 1,647 schools, with 724,395 pupils, 18 public colleges, 20 private colleges, a single state university, and seven private universities.
Oman might be one of the Middle East’s lesser known countries, but it offers excellent education opportunities. In such a small country, Oman has plenty of options when it comes to studying at university.
There are many international private schools in Oman which cater to a variety of nationalities, including American, British, Indian, French, German, and Japanese. Most of these schools are located in the capital, Muscat.
The medical education market is set to boom shortly thanks to significant advances made in the field of medical science, the surging incidence of chronic illnesses, increased rates of various types of cancer, technological innovations, and the frequent introduction of new courses. This gives rise to the demand of opening new hospitals as well.
Over the last 40 years, Oman has invested heavily in the health sector and succeeded in creating a relatively modern health care system. Health indicators attest to its comprehensive and well-developed standards. Health care and education industry are one of the major industries in the world. Both the sectors are continuously leading the overall market.
The standard of education and schools and colleges in Oman has improved in recent years because the government has increased their spending in those sectors.
For the acceleration of the development of the educational sector in Oman and to raise the quality of the level of education in Oman, there has been a need for the participation of private educational institutions in the Sultanate in this process. A regulatory, legal framework was created by the government of Oman to achieve this objective that safeguards the interests of the foreign and local investors.
