International degree, regional culture

After studying at our branch campuses in Qatar, students obtain the same degree as that from the university’s home campus.

The curricula taught in Doha are identical, and carry the same academic rigor, reputation, and tradition. The leadership and faculty of branch campuses are also made up of members that hail from their respective parent universities.

One of the best parts of being with QF is that they always urged us to be experimental. They wanted us to do things that we might not be able to do on our Washington campus.
