Prince Sultan University in Riyadh

  • Does anyone have any general knowledge about the Prince Sultan University in Riyadh, or possibly know someone who works (has worked) there? A friend is applying, and I'm wondering what the general reputation is, for teachers and students, alike.

    I applied once. They proposed me poorly competitive wages (around 45,000 USD, housing not including). I understand that PHD from Pakistan and India pressure down wages.
    Beside this, you live in a ghetto (the embassies area) and students of lower grade are not particularly respectful of professors.

  • Prince Sultan University

    The question was posted in May of 2007, so the response I am prividing may not mean anything to the original questioner. Nevertheless, someone else may benefit from the input I am providing. To make the long story short, I am happy at PSU and the pay is copetitive. To give you an example, one faculty member (certainly not me) is payed more than $10,000 per month. So, the university makes an offer and it is up to you to bargain. The person who answered the original request should have bargained for a better salary and would have gotton a positive response. The appartments the university provides are much better than average appartments in the US where I spent most of my life. I would rate them at the level of three stars hotels. There are six faculty members who have terminal degree from India, one from Malaysia, several from Australia, England, France and the US and canada.
