01st Sep 2020 | by the Office of Public Affairs

Seven AUK alumni have been accepted to enroll in a year-long training program at the Kuwait Diplomatic Institute to become diplomatic attaches. Sheikh Soud Nasser Al-Sabah Kuwait Diplomatic Institute was created to train Kuwaiti diplomats (of all levels) but specifically the new group starting as diplomatic attaches. They will be given different lectures held by different people, including professors, ambassadors, ministers, etc. The diplomatic institute also organizes different trips that will further enhance the students’ knowledge. Alumna Razan Al-Dehani (’19) credited her professors at AUK as well as her involvement in extracurricular activities on campus as a solid base for her pursuance of a career in diplomacy, “AUK has definitely provided us with professors…who truly care about trying to let their students learn and understand in a way where it would definitely stick with them. In addition, the extracurricular activities play a big role as well. For example, being part of a club will of course enhance your knowledge further. All these factors contributed to and had a big impact on how well I was prepared.” Meanwhile, alumnus Khalid Al-Sabah (’19) asserts his undergraduate degree as the foundation for his success at the training, “Graduating with a major in international relations from AUK helped me succeed in my internship as it built the basis of my understanding in what to do and how to word things accordingly.”

Becoming diplomatic attaches has been a uniform goal for the alumni who are now aiming to play a pivotal role in the world while representing Kuwait and fulfilling the diplomatic mission set by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Kuwait Diplomatic Institute was established as a response to the State of Kuwait’s ongoing diplomatic needs in addition to providing the Ministry of Foreign affairs with an effective supervision and training tool for the State of Kuwait’s diplomatic personnel, to adapt and perform in an ever-changing international climate.
