The Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) admissions team will be showcasing the benefits of a Georgetown education at the upcoming 7th annual Qatar International Universities’ Fair. The event, which will run from 17 – 19 October at the Qatar National Convention Center, will allow prospective applicants to find out more about the unique student experience at GU-Q.
The annual fair is hosted by the Qatari Ministry of Education and Higher Education and aims to connect students and their parents with the admissions staff of universities and colleges around the world. In addition to morning sessions for local schools, the Fair will be open to the public in the evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
"We are pleased to support the efforts of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education once again this year and to highlight Qatar's mission to develop world-class higher educational options here at Education City,” said Director of Admissions, Joseph Hernandez.
“We are looking forward to meeting with potential students and their parents and introduce them to the opportunities that come with a Georgetown education. In addition to an unparalleled learning experience and a world class degree, Georgetown offers a long tradition of community service and the chance to be part of a diverse student body," he said.
Interested students can meet at the GU-Q booth to find out more about campus life, extracurricular opportunities and GU-Q’s Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (BSFS) degree. This interdisciplinary program prepares students to tackle pressing global issues by providing them with training in critical thinking, analytic and communication skills within an international context.
Students at GU-Q’s Education City campus follow the same curriculum as the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown’s Main Campus in Washington, D.C. and can major in Culture and Politics, International Economics, International History, or International Politics.
Staff at the Fair will be able to answer questions from students interested the degree who would like practical advice on the application process. Attendees will also be able to find out more about GU-Q’s student clubs and activities, study abroad options, and campus life.
