    I have been working at King Saud University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    King Saud University’s College of Medicine was established in 1967. The choice of members for the Teaching Board and the supervision of exams until 1978 were done cooperatively between the faculty and the University of London. The best students in the country apply to KSU

    Cons

    No change, nepotism, tunnel vision, Lost the supervision and cooperation with the University of London since 1978. Other cooperative contracts are on paper only. Do not adhere to MOE regulations. Most difficult University for promotions.
