The British Embassy in Kuwait considers the College to be “the premier college of its type in the Gulf”.
It is based on the Joint Services Command and Staff College in Shrivenham, United Kingdom. Because of early cooperation with the British military, and the manner in which its curriculum was modeled on British curricula, the College has retained British military instructors to this day.
