University Preparatory Program Manager’s Letter

Dr. Ahmed AlKattan

University Preparatory Program Manager a.alkattan@dau.edu.sa

On behalf of our entire staff, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the University preparatory Program. I hope you will take a moment to read through our mission and goals. We strive to provide services and courses that will aid in preparing our students for the subsequent stages of their  university life.

The UPP is proud of its longstanding service to the university students, since its foundation as a customized program which provides students with a broad understanding of higher education and of the most successful practices of effective learning. Through coursework and learning assistantship  of their instructors, students develop the skills they need to deal with a more specialized material in their fields of study. More specifically, the courses we offer at the UPP are intended to set the pace for equipping students with the critical, analytic and practice skills they need.

As the director of the UPP, it is a privilege for me to work with a distinguished number of instructional and academic staff including administrators and technical/information systems support. Together we creatively address issues and look for innovative approaches to meeting the needs of our students.

We look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,
