Qatar Foundation (QF) is set to host its annual Convocation Ceremony, in honour of Class of 2019, on Tuesday, 7 May, at the Education City Ceremonial Court.

Honouring the latest cohort of graduates from nine universities under QF, the ceremony will serve as an opportunity for young men and women who are now preparing to enter the next phase of their lives, to reflect on their experiences within the unique learning environment of Education City, and to share their successes and stories with each other.

Convocation 2019 will see graduates of Medicine, Engineering, Computer Science, International Affairs to Art and Design, Communication, Law, and Islamic Studies, join the ever-growing alumni network of Qatar Foundation of over 5,000 members.

Akhlaquna AwardMayan Zebeib, Chief Communications Officer at QF, said that the celebration of academic excellence and self-development during the QF Convocation Ceremony mirrors the knowledge and discovery of graduates who learned and thrived at Education City.

Convocation not only celebrates what these young men and women have achieved as QF students; it looks ahead with great anticipation to what they will now accomplish, as leaders, achievers, active citizens, and drivers of positive change. It marks the start of a new chapter in their story, and reflects the excitement that stems from possibility and opportunity.

QF is immensely proud of its Class of 2019, and we look forward to honouring them at an occasion that demonstrates, in the most vivid form, why QF invests in the future by investing in the talent, creativity, energy, and aspirations of the youth.’
