Provost Helen Moonie paid a visit to Al-Makhatoum College in Dundee recently accompanied by students from Ayrshire.

The Ayrshire visitors were taken on a tour of the campus and attended a lecture on the subject of “Dialogue of Civilisations” along with UAE and Malaysian students currently taking part in the College’s 2015 Academic Training Programme.

Dr Godazgar from the college said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Provost Moonie and the school students to the College and to give them some insight into what we offer in terms of study and research.”

Provost Moonie said: “Students and staff from all over the world study and work at Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education and I was really pleased to visit it, meet students and staff and hear about their educational experiences there.

“The college brings together student and staff of all religions and no religion together. I was delighted to see the young people from South Ayrshire interacting with the students at the college, it was very apparent how much they were learning from each other. I am sure that the experience of meeting each other will have been of great benefit to all the students.”
