Kate was born in Northern Ireland but completed her higher studies in England. She arrived in Muscat in 1986 and since then has worked in administration and teaching at National Training Institute; administered scholarships and taught at the British Council; and lectured at Muscat College. Kate established Al Ahlam in 2002 and today still considers her one to one counseling sessions with students the most interesting and rewarding part of her work.
Hi! I’m Lanston, the University Placements Manager. My job is to coordinate with universities, colleges and schools to keep up to date on the huge variety of programmes available and the facilities they offer to international students. I counsel students who have particular difficulties and I search for and find solutions to their problems. I also keep up to date on the latest visa regulations to ensure that our office has a 100% visa success rate. I have visited many towns and cities in the UK to see our partner institutions.
Marhaba! I’m Iman, the University Placements Officer. I graduated with a Bachelors degree from Germany so I know what it is like to live and study in a European country. My job is to help students find the right University according to the grades they have achieved and the programme of study they are looking for. I help students to prepare strong applications and I make sure they are correctly submitted along with the required supporting documents. I book campus accommodation, prepare and print out visa applications and make sure the correct supporting documents are also attached. I do everything I can to ensure that my students’ journey to the UK is smooth!
Marhaba! My name is Ahlam and I help students apply to English Language Schools. We represent big schools, small schools, schools in cities and schools beside the sea – I help you to choose the right one! I also book homestay accommodation with the help of the school Accommodation office. I fill up the visa application form and, before they travel, I give my students a very good briefing on how to learn English and what to expect when living with a host family. I like my students to be prepared for everything they will experience when they live and study abroad. Each school is very special and it is difficult to pick a favourite but I like Anglo-Continental in Bournemouth because it is the first school we represented when Al Ahlam company was set up in 2002.
I am a qualified and experienced Educational Psychologist and I liaise with Oman’s private bilingual and community schools to help counsellors and staff manage young people who are facing challenges in learning. I conduct many tests that identify the problems which prevent children from participating fully in school and other activities. I also work with teaching staff to design specialised programmes to enable students to overcome emotional and social issues as well as their learning difficulties.
Hala! I am the Receptionist so I am the first person you will meet when you come to our office! I register students on our special computer system - SIS ( Student Information System). I make sure it is kept up to date so all the Al Ahlam staff can get information quickly and easily. I also look after the brochures and marketing materials for our schools and colleges. This means that when you visit our office you can find lots of information to help you decide about your studies.
