Qatar Tourism has launched an education campaign in collaboration with Qatar Foundation (QF) and Qatar University (QU)  to showcase the country’s university offerings and cross-disciplinary hubs where students can graduate with internationally recognized degrees. 

“Qatar has a dynamic university offering, and through this campaign, we will be able to highlight what makes Qatar the right choice for university education. Qatar uniquely combines globally renowned education with a rich culture, safe environment, world-class facilities, social stability, and excellent employment opportunities,” says Berthold Trenkel, COO, Qatar Tourism.

In terms of education, QF has created a multi-disciplinary education ecosystem comprising branch campuses of seven of the world’s major universities, as well as its homegrown Hamad Bin Khalifa University. With these institutions located in close proximity, students can cross-register for courses at different universities, and enroll in joint academic programs.

“The multiversity approach of making it possible for students to maximize their educational experience by preparing them not only for a profession but for life is the best formula for the future of our region,” says Francisco Marmolejo, President of Higher Education, Qatar Foundation.

Additionally, QU continues to serve as the country’s primary institution of higher education with eleven colleges and 94 different programs. Each year Qatar University recruits thousands of students, including international students, who comprise no less than 30% of the student population at Qatar University,” says Dr. Eiman Mustafawi, Vice President for Student Affairs, Qatar University.
