Qatar Foundation (QF) showcases its universities and higher education programmes during its first Education City Roadshow in Kuwait.
The three-day event – which started on 12 February – will provide young men and women in Kuwait with the opportunity to learn more about QF’s multidisciplinary environment at Education City, which is home to a diverse range of education facilities, including pre-university schools, its homegrown research institution, Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) and eight international partner universities.
Omran Al-Kuwari, Acting CEO at QF, said that the Education City Roadshow is the result of an ongoing cooperation with the State of Kuwait, particularly in the field of higher education, to provide exceptional educational opportunities to young people.
Education City provides a unique higher education model that helps develop and nurture young learners both academically and personally within a safe multicultural environment. We look forward to meeting with as many Kuwaiti high school students as possible at our inaugural Education City Roadshow, and to hopefully welcome them to Qatar Foundation, where they can develop their skills and immerse themselves in an enriching cultural and academic experience.’
Students attending the roadshow will receive an overview of available scholarship and funding opportunities, cross-registration classes, student housing, and life in Qatar.
Mayan M Zebeib, Chief Communications Officer at QF, said that the Education City Roadshow provides an unprecedented opportunity for higher education institutions in Education City to give prospective students in Kuwait an overview of the wide range of tailored programmes they offer.
Education City serves as a hub of academic excellence in Qatar and the region, and this unique event will enable young Kuwaiti students to make informed decisions as they transition to the next chapter of their academic journeys.’
All Education City universities are also represented in the event. For more information about the Education City Roadshow, visit qf.org.qa.
