Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), which hosted its orientation day yesterday, has a competitive and holistic admissions review process that reflects a commitment to attracting high-achievers to be part of its innovative and result-oriented community. 
Noureddine Radouai, part of the first cohort of the Master of Public Policy (MPP) programme at the newly launched College of Public Policy (CPP), explains his choice to enrol at HBKU.
“I was particularly attracted to the interdisciplinary nature of the MPP programme as the curriculum and the courses offered align well with my interests and objectives. The coursework will help me increase my knowledge and learn skills necessary to contribute to the development and modernisation of my home country,” he said. “Besides core policy courses, the programme offers the opportunity of professional development through the co-operation it has built with various organisations in Qatar.”
MPP is the first programme to be offered by CPP which aims to develop effective policy formation and implementation skills among students who can specialise in either social policy or energy and 
environmental policy. 
Another incoming student, Abdulaziz Mohamed, who has enrolled at College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) to pursue a Master of Arts (MA) in Translation Studies, said: “Since high school, I’ve wanted to pursue translation studies and when I learned about this programme at CHSS’s information session, I decided to enrol here.”
“My time at HBKU will not only be an academically challenging and rewarding one but will also be helpful in my overall personality development,” he added. 
The MA in Translation Studies programme trains expert translators and equips them with the skill set to work in various sectors. 
Khairunnisa Hussain, an incoming student joining the College of Islamic Studies’ (CIS) Master of Arts in Islam and Global Affairs programme, said she found the programme’s forward-looking prospects 
particularly appealing.
“It has always been a personal aim of mine to learn more about Islam and how it relates to current global concerns. Having experienced life here in Qatar over the past four years, I felt it was apt and timely for me to pursue this CIS programme as it offers extensive critical analysis of pertinent Islamic issues from vastly expansive global perspectives,” 
Hussain said.
The programme enables students to possess the skills that help them to become ethical leaders who can assume key roles in governmental and non-governmental organisations, as well private, local, and international entities, while remaining conscious of large-scale, global issues.
Jamil Mohmoud Alenbawi, a referral co-ordinator at Primary Health Care Corporation, has enrolled in the PhD in Genomics and Precision Medicine (GPM) programme at the College of Health and Social Sciences (CHLS). 
The programme aims to support Qatar’s aim of developing an efficient and personalised medicine and healthcare programme for its citizens. 
Reflecting on how his studies at HBKU will shape her professional aspirations, Alenbawi remarks: “This programme offers advanced knowledge and training in the field of genomics and precision medicine and will give me the opportunity to explore state-of-the-art basic, clinical, technological, computational, legal and ethical aspects of a fascinating, fast-expanding sector of the life sciences.”
