KIC Online Policy Manual

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.

All policies include

  • A policy statement which covers the high-level guiding principles. This identifies why the policy is needed and who it covers.
  • The related procedures which are the operational processes required to ensure that the policy is implemented in a consistent manner. They document the step-by-step tasks that need to be taken, identify who should carry out the procedure, when and how the steps should be carried out

KIC policies are grouped in 12 sections: the first are aligned with the eleven CAA Standards and a further section for policies that do not fall within these categories.

This section sets out policies relating to the governance and management of the College. It covers the Vision and Mission; the organisational structure; our committees (including within KIC and the Board of Trustees); policies and procedures; institutional planning; risk management; and management of the College. 

This section sets out policies relating to KIC’s quality assurance activities. It covers College’s system for QA; our continuous quality enhancement measures; and the Institutional Quality Effectiveness & Accreditation (IQEA) Department, which is KIC’s department responsible under the requirements of this CAA Standard to support the College in its QA activities.

This section sets out policies relating to research at KIC. It covers College strategies for research; how research and scholarly activities will be carried out; support for research; and the transfer of knowledge to programs of study.

This section sets out policies relating to how KIC supports students during their learning journey from application and enrolment to graduation and as alumni, as well as their rights and responsibilities whilst attending the College.

This section sets out policies related to the regulation of the financial functions of the College in accordance with international standards, as well as the support provided to the administration in its objective of accomplishing the mission through the judicious use of financial resources.

This section sets out the policies related to how the KIC complies with relevant legislation at federal and Emirate levels as well as the requirements for our print and digital communications.

This section sets out policies on how KIC develops collaborative external partnerships that lead to mutually beneficial outcomes for students, faculty and staff. This includes identifying community and business needs, developing relationships with government entities, businesses, alumni, diverse communities and citizens.

Borrowing Policy

Students should show their college ID to borrow books from the library. Loan period and number of books for the staff and students are different like:

  • Students can borrow up to 5 books for 10 days.
  • Staff can borrow 10 books up to 30 days.

  • The Director of the library has the authority to recall a borrowed book at any time.
