The agreement comes as USW signs partnership and admission agreements at the Dubai Airshow with key regional training providers, opening up opportunities for students to enhance their education with an academic UK honours degree in which EASA training requirements are embedded.

“We are pleased to join forces with the University of South Wales to open the region’s pipeline of talent into the higher education of USW’s degrees,” said Kuwait Airways Business Centre leader Abdullah Al Anezi.

Professor Julie Lydon OBE, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of South Wales, said: “Our signing with Kuwait Airways builds on our reputation of being a valued partner of flag-carrying airlines and major maintenance and repair organisations. The key for the future of the global aviation industry in a knowledge-based economy is the close and growing partnership between modern global universities and leading aerospace companies. We’re delighted to be increasing our relationships in the region as we build our offer at Dubai South.”
