Manama: More than  90 students attended the annual Student Induction Day conducted virtually by the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) for the new entrants of its International Foundation Programme and the Bangor University Programme, in a series of interactive sessions held via Microsoft Teams.

During the induction, the freshers were taken through the journey of learning more about the relevant rules and policies in place. They were also given guidelines on how to access their online classrooms via the BIBF’s e-Learning Platform MyClass, as well as provided room to ask questions regarding existing policies and processes, with all questions being answered during the session and referred to relevant team members for more details and clarifications.

The session ended with much positivity and motivation as two alumni from the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program Alumni Association (CPISPAA) shared their most impactful life experiences that shaped their successful career today, to inspire and encourage students make the best of their time at the university.
