‘Qatar Education’ Receives Strong Endorsement

Press release from: Qatar Education

Fast advancing as the education hub of the Gulf Region, the Qatari Government are proudly positioning high level learning as a key resource of their country. A key achievement, this role will further realise the highly strategic and ambitious cornerstones of the Qatar National Vision 2030 that places focus on Human, Social, Economic and Environmental development – education and research being critical to these challenges.

Qatar University (QU), the state’s oldest and leading higher education institution, has placed the National Vision at the forefront of its own vision to be a model in the region - recognised for high-quality research and as a leader of economic and social development. Strong government support and partnerships with a wide range of key sectors – academia, business, industry, and civil society – have positioned QU as an invaluable resource for prospective employers seeking well-qualified graduates to contribute to the country’s development.

Starting in 2003, the institution, in line with Qatar education reform initiatives, has been transforming its administrative and academic structure. To ensure the lasting quality of its programmes, QU has gained a number of prestigious accreditation achievements from well-recognized international accrediting bodies for its College of Business & Economics, College of Education, College of Pharmacy, Foundation Program Department of English, Biomedical Sciences Program, Chemistry Program, and Statistics Program. Along with other ongoing accreditation exercises throughout the institution, QU is itself seeking institution-wide accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in the US. This achievement will further advance the institution’s growing reputation as a model of excellence.


Another example of the Government’s solid commitment and vast investment in the burgeoning education initiative is the Qatar Foundation’s creation of Education City - a stunning 1,400 hectare campus that houses a number of progressive and instructive organisations and research centres, alongside a selection of elite international universities, including Georgetown University, HEC Paris, Carnegie Mellon University to name but a few.

Growing steadily, the City’s progress is attracting attention globally, in particular from well-known international institutions who are seeking a base in the region.
To further support and perpetuate this solid escalation of development and business potential in the sector of education, the Qatar Education Conference and Exhibition has been launched. A dynamic two day conference, that provides opportunities to meet and hold discussions with a high level Qatari delegation and their international partners in London.

Taking place on 7-8 June, at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington, Qatar Education will present a packed agenda of workshops, case studies, expert insight, networking sessions, exhibition and individual 1-2-1 private meetings between leading European academia and key members of the Qatar Alumni and Government.

Endorsement has been strong with Qatar University immediately signing up to be a leading sponsor of the event. Its President, H.E. Prof Sheikha Abdulla Al-Misnad is at the forefront of the Qatar education drive, and in this capacity as well as Board of Director of Qatar Foundation, she is a key figure in the creation and implementation of Qatar Education City.

“As the national university, we embrace our responsibility to play a key role in the dialogue on quality education in Qatar; an education that will help shape the future of the country. We are proud with the progress that Qatar University, Education City, and Qatar as a whole, is making in raising the benchmarks of excellence and inspired education provision. Qatar Education provides us with an excellent platform to showcase this progress and create partnership opportunities with high quality institutions and organisations globally.” said H.E. Prof Al-Misnad.


Support for the event has been far-reaching with positive endorsements from British Expertise, GEMS, Middle East Association, and Qatar Finance and Business Academy.

ASPIRE Academy for Sports Excellence has also signed up as a Platinum sponsor of Qatar Education. One of the world’s foremost sports institutes for males aged 12-17, ASPIRE are proud to be leading the way in developing not only sports champions, but also champions in education and life.

“ASPIRE aims to provide our student-athletes with the right balance between sport and education and create an environment that is ideal for learning both on the field and in the classroom,” said Mr. Badr Al Hay, Director of Education and Student Care at ASPIRE.

“ASPIRE is committed to producing future leaders of Qatar and are delighted to partner with Qatar Education in London to showcase our unique combination of sport and education.”

The launch of Qatar Education has had an overwhelming response, with numerous high profile delegates already registered to attend, appointment of two prestigious sponsors and discussions with a further three – all before the programme has been finalised! Obviously, a vital topic for many, Qatar Education will provide the perfect vehicle for further discussions and progress.
