The HCT-Ruwais Women’s College was opened in 2008 in the Western Region town of Ruwais as a sister college to the HCT-Madinat Zayed Colleges. It offers a similar range of courses to the Madinat Zayed Colleges.
It was established to reduce travel time for students living in more distant locations who are keen to undertake post-secondary studies. The college is therefore ideally situated to serve students from Ruwais, Sila, Ghayathi and surrounding towns.
The HCT-Ruwais Men’s College was opened in 2009 to meet the growing demand for evening courses to support the many National employees in the petrochemical industries of Al Gharbia, who wanted to further their studies and gain Bachelor and Master degrees. Due to this increasing demand by potential students it is now the fastest growing college in the HCT system.
