Default Riyadh University for Female expat

I have accepted a position in Riyadh Saudi Arabia and would like to bring my wife with me (I have the option of a married status contract). She needs to take a few university courses to meet the pre-reqs for medical school and I would like to know if anyone knows of a University in Riyadh that that accepts female expats where she can take: Organic Chemistry, Microbiology and Human Anatomy and physio. It would be a huge PLUS if the school has an agreement with a US based school so the credit can be awarded from there.

Thanks,

-J

Based on what I heard when there (94-02)I dont think it will be easy - classes will be free for citizens, and there is probably no payment mechanism for expats to get tuition there. Primary and secondary school for expat children is all done in specially set up schools, where you pay for everything - there is a British School, and a French school that I know of , for children of expats only. I doubt that these woul go high enough for what you indicate your wife needs/wants.

you would need to check for "american universities" unless your wife speaks fluent arabic. and most of those do not offer pre-med/med programs.

You should have her check out:

Princess Noura bint Abdulrahman University in Riyadh (you'll see it when you drive from the airport to the city)
King Saud University
with the city of Riyadh. Both have those types of programs and I'm pretty sure they use English as a teaching method for these programs.

Realistically, if she wanted the "best" med/pre-med school in Saudi, she should check out King Abdulaziz University (KAU) in Jeddah. They have an EXCELLENT medical program where the language of instruction is in English. In addition, there are highly educated female staff and if she takes a position in a lab on campus, there is a mixed gender work environment - and women are allowed to wear lab-based attire.

if you need any contacts at these universities, please PM me.
