Education in Bahrain



An examination of Bahrain’s higher ed sector.


Bahrain’s education sector, like education sectors around the world, had to adapt quickly in early 2020 when the first case of COVID-19 was recorded in the country in late February 2020. However, with digital learning already on the rise, universities such as the Arabian Gulf University and the American University were quick to scale up distance learning capacity in order to afford their students an uninterrupted educational experience.

Going forward, it is clear that much of what has been learned and developed over this difficult period will carry into the post-COVID-19 period, with blended learning becoming a more permanent fixture at universities in Bahrain, the region, and the world.

This 22-page special report includes interviews with the country’s top education players, as well as articles and analysis on the state of the sector. It is our hope that it provide a key snapshot of Bahrain’s education sector as this crucial moment in its development.
