Qataris make up half of the 4,000-plus students now enrolled at Qatar Foundation's (QF) universities, as new and returning students who are starting or continuing their journey of learning at Education City gained an insight into how QFs unique education ecosystem supports them every step of the way at Tawasol 2023.
Students from over 100 nationalities are enrolled in QF universities in the 2023-24 academic year, including over 1,100 new students. Since 2019-20, enrollment in QF universities has increased by over 20%.
Organised by QF's Student Life team, Tawasol 2023 showcased the world of resources available to students at Education City as the new academic year gets into full swing, including healthcare, sports and recreation, housing services, student employment opportunities, and other aspects of life within the QF community.
Tawasol also provided another chance for students from QF’s Hamad Bin Khalifa University and seven partner universities, which collectively offer 65 academic programmes spanning undergraduate and postgraduate studies, to make new connections and friendships.
The academic and personal-growth experience that Education City offers allows students to cross-register for courses at different QF universities, take interdisciplinary programmes, and participate in research projects and international exchange opportunities, with the aim of nurturing graduates who are equipped for impactful careers while also being socially aware citizens.
“At Qatar Foundation, we are committed to providing every one of our students with a world-class, unique, and flexible learning experience that prepares them, when they graduate, to be leaders capable of shaping the communities they live and work in,” said, Francisco Marmolejo, president of Higher Education, QF.
