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.

Introduction

01

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.

When Education City was first conceived, our vision was to provide world-class education to the people of Qatar.

But over the past 23 years, this project has achieved beyond that goal and the result is a world-class academic hub providing unique opportunities and initiatives.

Collaborations between some of the world’s best institutions are happening right here in Doha.

Our Approach

02

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.
