Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and peace be upon the Prophet Mohammad, and to his family and companions and those who followed him with charity until the Day of Judgment:
The Common First Year is considered the first and most important step for a university student, and through which he enters a new and different stage from the stages of general education. It is a critical stage that directed the enrolled students to the university requirements and behavior. Moreover, it plays a great role in expanding students' perceptions, diversify their attitudes, refine their talents and develop their research capabilities.
The Deanship of the Common First Year aims to achieve the desired goals which are: upgrading the academic level of students, creating the appropriate educational environment such as developing English language, computers and various thinking skills.
Perhaps one of our most important goals is to achieve the university’s mission and apply its vision that’s based on diversifying trends, developing skills, enhancing academic and professional performance. These aspects would create an educated and armed generation with all the capabilities that make them able to hold responsibility and engage in jobs of public and private sectors with all merit. This will achieve Vision of the country 2030.
It is worth noting that blended learning system is the most important systems that students should be familiar with at Saudi Electronic University. Deanship of the Common First Year wants to be established and rooted this system in its students for what benefits them.
I ask Allah to inspire us, guide us to goodness, and to what he loves and satisfies.
