Chairman of the Board of Trustees Message

In the name of Allah The Most Graceful the Most Merciful, and Peace be upon his Prophet Mohammad
The instructions of the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques to raise the standard of health services in the Kingdom formed the major incentive for me to contemplate, and then found Al-Riyada College for Health Sciences. Moreover, the guidance of HRH the late Prince Abdul-Majeed Ibn Abd El-Aziz had the most fruitful effect on my endeavors. I was hoping that the best people would share my vision, and after consulting with the elite of the most sincere people known in the country, I discovered that they shared my enthusiasm to establish this college under the auspices of the Ministry of Higher Education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We were fortunate to start collaborating with Queen Margaret University in Scotland, which is an outstanding university that appreciates our traditions and objectives. We also benefited greatly from Saudi, Arab and foreign experts in developing Al-Riyada College. The establishment was thus undertaken on solid grounds matching modern teaching techniques -equivalent to the highest standards of scientific curricula- and in harmony with our beloved Kingdom’s spirit and ethnicity. Al-Riyada College has marched forward confidently as a result of, first, God’s help, and then the efforts of all its guardians.
Here, I would like to congratulate you, the students and affiliates of Riyada College on our forth anniversary, and to wish you a successful future. I urge you all to follow the teachings of Allah  in all your actions and deeds, so that He may bless all our endeavors.
