Bringing world-class education to Qatar's doorstep.

At Qatar Foundation, everything starts with education. From preschool to postgraduate studies, we offer learning opportunities for students of all ages and abilities.

EDU007 - QF Education Hero



We offer primary and secondary education through schools directly operated by Qatar Foundation, while our higher-education programs consist of partnerships with some of the world’s top universities as well as our own homegrown university.

Our Approach


For over two decades, we’ve been driving regional innovation, fostering social development, and preparing students to tackle tomorrow’s biggest challenges. We recognize that the only guarantee of prosperity for a nation is the ability of its people to develop, adapt, and innovate.

That’s why we have invested heavily in creating an open hub for knowledge in Qatar built upon a unique ecosystem of collaborations. By integrating national schools and international universities in one campus, we’re pushing the boundaries of conventional education models.

Our multidisciplinary approach supports young people from their first day of school all the way through to advanced postgraduate studies, encouraging them to become active citizens striving to live a life of creativity, curiosity, and contemplation.

Education City


Education City, our flagship initiative, is a campus of more than 12 square kilometers that hosts branch campuses of some of the world’s leading educational institutes, a homegrown university, and other research, scholastic, and community centers.

Together, these institutes make Education City a unique model of academic and research excellence, pioneering a new approach to multidisciplinary, global education and enabling breakthroughs that benefit Qatar and the rest of the world.
