Qatar Foundation’s Academic Bridge Program (ABP) recently hosted an international college fair for its students. Representatives from approximately 30 universities in Qatar, the US, Britain and Germany participated in the 2014 ABP College Fair.
This was a golden opportunity for the ABP students learn more about the admissions requirements for entry into world class universities.
The universities that attended the fair included: College of the North Atlantic-Qatar, Creighton University, DePaul University, Indiana University, Jacobs University Bremen in Germany, Kent State University, Marquette University, McNeese State University, Middle Tennessee State University, Qatar University, Rochester Institute of Technology- Dubai, Savannah College of Art & Design, Shoreline Community College, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, St. John's University, Stenden University Qatar, University Indianapolis, University of Calgary Qatar, University of Cincinnati, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Michigan-Flint, University of Southern California, University of Southern Florida, University of Toledo, University of West of England–Bristol, Western Kentucky University, Western Michigan University, and Widener University.
Students who perform well at the ABP and meet basic university admission requirements have the opportunity to enter directly into the first year of undergraduate programs at a number of universities in the UK, the US and Germany.
In addition, students interested in joining certain universities in Qatar may be given credit for courses they took at the ABP.
In 2011, the ABP was awarded five years accreditation by the Commission on English Language Accreditation (CEA) in the United States.
This makes it easier to fast-track ABP graduates into universities in the United States without the need for them to complete a university foundation year.
