The field program, which was implemented by the Department of Media and Marketing in cooperation with the Admission and Registration Department at University of Buraimi, lasted for two weeks. It aimed at giving students information about University of Buraimi and its scientific programs, facilities and services provided to students. These visits come as a contribution from UoB to the society for the purpose of enabling school students to make the best decision for their academic goals and future careers. The visiting team also answered the students' questions and inquiries.

Notably, University of Buraimi has four faculties: Commerce, Engineering, Health sciences and Law, and offers 21 majors which award master's degrees, bachelor's degrees, higher diplomas and diplomas.

UoB also makes it a high priority to give employees and staff opportunities to complete their postgraduate studies by providing suitable timings for the master's programs. Thus, some of these programs are offered at weekends, twice a month. UoB is currently offering (5) master’s programs, i.e. Cybersecurity, Engineering Management, Business Administration, as well as master’s of Public Administration and Private Law. The latter two programs are taught in Arabic.
