The KIC Policies provide part of our governing framework by setting out how the business of the College will be conducted.
KIC’s policies have been created to steer focus and resources onto critical issues that align with our Mission and Vision and to promote consistency and operational efficiency whilst minimizing risk. They comply with the statutory requirements of the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the UAE’s federal Ministry of Education (MOE). Policies are developed and reviewed by KIC committees and must be authorised by the KIC College Council; certain policies also require approval of the Board of Trustees. The Board reviews all policies on an annual basis.
