Nine universities from across Education City joined together to invite the community in Qatar to learn more about their academic offerings at ‘Discover Education City 2016’.
Following the success of last year’s event, the scope of this year’s fair included new graduate programs at the master’s and Ph.D. level as well as undergraduate and foundation programs, offered by Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), Qatar Foundation’s homegrown Qatari university and the eight international campuses located in Education City.
The event held on November 9th and 10th at the HBKU Student Center was designed to cater to high school students, recent college graduates, and working professionals. Organized by level of study, attendees received a unique opportunity to gain insight into the academic offerings of nine universities in total:Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar, Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, Texas A&M University at Qatar, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, Georgetown University in Qatar, Northwestern University in Qatar, HEC Paris in Qatar, and UCL Qatar.
Admissions staff from all the participating academic institutions were available throughout the event to help visitors gain a thorough understanding of each program’s admissions processes. Though the institutions share a common campus, each university has its own unique culture and traditions, with the event providing visitors with an opportunity to experience the rich diversity that exists within the fabric of Education City.
