If you go to Gulfnews and look at his profile it says the same thing but they add Dubai school of goverment.
Hamdan was speaking metaphorically of a "School of Mohammed bin Rashid" in response not having an actual uni degree. He counts his fathers tutelage in statecraft and public administration as equitable to higher learning.
Sandhurst is strictly a military academy, and to contrast it with a school like West Point where its both academic and military, the content of Hamdan's education at Sandhurst is pretty clear (none). Even if West Point waived the requirement that cadets be US Citizens the Gulf royals still wouldn't make it past 1 semester (and I'm being generous...).
Now as for the LSE, he apparently took specialized courses there but was not enrolled in a degree program (this is as of last year when he was first made CP and his bio was released)...and if anyone of you has heard him speak English its doubtful his 'studies' amounted to much without extensive tutoring....well I'll let your imaginations roam from there. I don't think I will even touch the Dubai School of Govt, but to those of you here on the board who has attained a uni degree or professional degree--wouldn't it seem odd for someone to claim uni education without having the proof of 4+ years of hard work and committment to back them up?
I know I sound like a stickler but it gets my goat when folks claim to have done this and that and have nothing to back it up with.
And where are these zebra pictures?!
