Takatuf Scholars Program

Enrichment Programme

After the process of assessment and selection, Phase 1 of the competition for an international scholarship takes place in Oman. If you are offered and accept a seat in the Enrichment Programme, you will start with a 3-4 week Summer Residential Programme (SRP). 

This will be a great opportunity for you to develop your 21st century skills and prepare to become a successful student and future employee. After you have completed the SRP, you will continue to submit assignments as part of the Enrichment Programme (approximately 2 assignments per month for 4 months).

In February of your year of selection, you will be attending a short Winter Workshop after which you would have completed the Enrichment Programme.
If you are among the top performing students, you will be invited to a personal interview, as the final element in competing for the international scholarship. Your performance in the entire Enrichment Programme will decide whether you qualify to be offered an international scholarship or not.

If you do not qualify for an international scholarship, will still be recognised as a Takatuf Scholar of that year, and will join scholars in the Takatuf Scholars Prorgamme Alumni Network (TSPAN).

The International Scholarship Phase

The International Scholarship supports attendance at an international boarding school for two years. This will prepare you for the rigour of applying to and attending leading universities. By the end of year two at the boarding school, you must have an offer of admission to a university.

Throughout the six-year international scholarship, you will receive extensive support at multiple levels. The Programme will be closely monitoring your academic and personal development, in addition to the support you will receive from the boarding school and university. You will also receive a monthly allowance and other annual allowances to cover your tuition, travel, clothing, accommodation, healthcare and other expenses.
