Hi Parijat ... try Arab Open University - it has most of its courses in English and the timings are good for employees (classes are for 2 hours each & start from 10 am till 8pm)- they have courses even on Saturdays.

Hi Ali, yes there's no problem to do your graduation now - like I said try Arab Open University - its cheapest private university in Kuwait and the studies, professors, classes and everything else is also very good there. They have Wifi, e-library, common rooms, cafe and the campus is very good too.
