Last month Northwestern University Qatar held a workshop to give prospective students an inside track on the university application process in Qatar, and this month they continue their sessions with three more workshops in a series called “Get Ready!” designed to educated students about applying to university.

The first workshop is on January 12th, and is called “A Decision Maker’s Perspective”.

It will give insight into the admissions officers decision-making process, and is open to the public.

The first workshop on December 8th, titled “Applications Essays 101” was run by ESL specialist Trish Seapy who led 150 students through writing personal statements and essays, and left students feeling more confident.
