Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) is a private institution established in 2004 and recognized, since 2006, by the Private University Council (PUC) of Kuwait. ACK offers two and four-year post-secondary programs of study leading to Australian qualifications. Students undertaking the Australian diploma programs at ACK in Kuwait are required to complete the additional units of study that may be known as the Pre-Diploma units. These units are integrated into the diploma program, typically completed within the first semester following enrollment. The remaining units are identical to the requirements of the same two-year diploma program provided by an Australian auspicing partner institution.
