photo-2-foudation-qatari-studentsHamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development (QF), in partnership with several of its partner universities in Education City, will host a series of workshops for high school students on 11 December 2013. 

Recruitment and Outreach Coordinator at HBKU’s Student Affairs department, Aisha Almeer, said:

From our experience with high school students and the university admissions process, we highly encourage all Grade 11 and 12 students to register for these sessions…The goal of this programme is to provide support for students in preparing for university admissions. The application process, and admissions in general, involves various components and we want to ensure that students have all the information they need. While this programme is focusing on students in their later years of high school, we believe it is never too early to start preparing for university, and also organise sessions for younger students through the academic year.’

The workshops, designed for students in Grade 11 and 12, will cover topics such as choosing your major, portfolio development, writing your CV and personal statement, and interview skills. Sessions will run from four in the afternoon until seven in the evening. Each session will be delivered by a different partner university, with the participation of representatives from Hamad bin Khalifa University, Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar, Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar, Texas A&M University at Qatar, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, Georgetown School of Foreign Service in Qatar, and Northwestern University in Qatar.

Participants will also have the opportunity to meet students and alumni from various universities within Education City, who are attending this event to share lessons learned from their experiences through the university preparation and admissions processes.
