Qatar Tourism has launched an education campaign in partnership with Qatar Foundation.

As students head back to the classroom and lecture hall, Qatar Tourism has launched an education campaign in collaboration with Qatar Foundation (QF) and Qatar University (QU) to promote the state as a world-class education hub. The campaign targets students and parents in the region and is designed to showcase why they should consider studying in Qatar. It aims to highlight the country’s leading accredited university offerings and how they can open a world of opportunities for students by providing internationally recognised degrees from toplevel universities.

Chief Operating Officer of Qatar Tourism, Berthold Trenkel, said: “Qatar has always understood the power of education and has therefore heavily invested to ensure the educational landscape in the country is international, cutting-edge and diverse. Qatar has a dynamic university offering and, through this campaign, we will be able to highlight what makes Qatar the right choice for university education. Qatar uniquely combines globally renowned education with a rich culture, safe environment, world-class facilities, social stability and excellent employment opportunities.”

QF has created a globally unique, multidisciplinary ecosystem of education with its Education City being home to branch campuses of seven of the world’s leading universities, as well as QF’s homegrown Hamad Bin Khalifa University. Hend Zainal, Executive Director of Strategy, Management, and Partnerships at QF’s Higher Education division, said: “Qatar Foundation’s unique education ecosystem makes studying in Education City an experience that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.

“Education City is a true testament to Qatar’s nationallevel commitment to education. We believe that quality education underpins the development of nations and the realisation of individuals’ and communities’ true potential. “We are proud of our partnership with Qatar Tourism through this campaign that will showcase the benefits that quality education brings to Qatar, the region and the world, and we hope that this will position Qatar as a regional hub for education.”

QU continues to serve as the country’s primary institution of higher education. It has 11 colleges and 94 different programmes and offers quality education to more than 25,000 multinational students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. QU has a substantial pool of skilled and in-demand graduates, a rising number of highly regarded specialised master’s and Ph.D. programmes and numerous noteworthy research accomplishments. ✤
