The meeting was attended by a large number of students who were given an overview on NBK’s banking services which will benefit them during their studies, as well as the latest transfer alternatives and payment systems that were designed to fit their lifestyle. Students positively engaged in the discussions that responded to their queries about various requirements such as accommodation, living conditions, laws and regulations they need to be aware about, as well as the teaching systems and skills they are expected to acquire.
