Any information about the location and reputation of this school?

So many people have told that it is very expensive to live in Kuwait.
I really want to come too Kuwait, but franky I am a little scared.

.

Ajial is located in crappy area of Kuwait, (Riggae) salary is crappy, and the housing (shared) is in a crappy building, surrounded by other crappy buildings.
If can live with crappy, it's not a bad gig.

I posted about this school 6 months ago. If you do a search you will see everything said about the place. The housing is in a bad area and far from many things, so you would need to rent a car. That was another drawback for me - I would not want to live in that area and I have been here quite a while. I don't think they offered an allowance to be able to choose your own housing. They had a much stricter dress policy (very conservative)than I was used to or would feel comfortable with. I don't know anyone who works there now. You could survive it for a year if you want to get some experience and then move on to something better.

Their housing has been moved to Salmiya, but as I said, the building is nothing special. They do offer housing allowance and the western women I know that have worked there were not asked to dress any differently than any other school.
