UHD Students Unit upon their arrival. The purpose of the trip was educational;
it was to learn about the different units and departments of UHD so that they can
have a clear idea about university life and study.
During the trip, students were directed to the main buildings and units
including the medical laboratory, Sports Centre and the cafeteria where they had
the opportunity to briefly experience life as a university student. At the end
of their trip, the students which numbered 60 attended a seminar at Professor
