Civil Service Commission directs study abroad efforts for scarce specializations

The bureau accepts Kuwaiti employees from any ministry or government agency to complete studies in certain rare specializations and covers their salaries, allowances, tuition fees, and airline tickets for them and their children.

Al-Anbaa newspaper’s sources disclosed that the Civil Service Commission determines the number of employees sent abroad to pursue higher studies, such as doctorates, master’s, bachelor’s, or academic diplomas. This decision aligns with the budget set by the Ministry of Finance and requires approval from the employer.

This response addresses why the bureau hasn’t sent employees to meet labor market needs for scarce specializations. It clarifies that the approved number aligns with the Ministry of Finance’s budget and cannot be exceeded. Additionally, it requires the employer’s approval for an employee to study, whether on a mission or study leave.

The sources emphasized that, despite this, the bureau accepts Kuwaiti employees from any ministry or government agency to complete studies in certain rare specializations. The bureau covers their salaries, allowances, tuition fees, and airline tickets for them and their children.

Sources mentioned, “for instance, studying nursing and educational fields, vital for the country, with the requirement that employees work for a comparable duration post-degree.”
