Saudi Arabia’s Education Ministry has warned students to steer clear of what it called “suspicious websites,” an apparent reference to the Hebrew University site that has attracted Saudi students.
The ministry’s spokesman, Dr. Muhammad Al-Hayzan, said the certificates from such institutions will not be accredited by the ministry. “Students have other alternatives. One of them is they can join the Saudi Electronic University,” he added.
The Nocamels.com website reported last week that Hebrew University has started giving free courses in cooperation with global partners who help it promote these courses. The university claimed that its online courses on neurology and the brain attracted over 40,000 students all over the world, including Saudi Arabia.
