Qatar University (QU) launched a plan to accommodate the national students who have been affected by the Qatar-Gulf crisis.

During the crisis outbreak, the national students at the siege countries (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain) were enforced to leave immediately their country of residence. Hence, they were not allowed to pursue their studies at universities in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.

QU VP for Student Affairs Dr Khalid Al-Khanji (pictured) noted QU Student Affairs Sector is currently assessing, in collaboration with QU Academic Affairs and in coordination with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, the status of the affected students to find the efficient solutions that are of the benefit of the University and the students. He said: “Meanwhile, QU has implemented a primary admission plan to enroll the national students at the siege countries as visiting students at QU for the Summer and Fall semesters, until a final solution is defined.”

He added: “QU is the premiere national institution of higher education in Qatar. It offers high-quality academic programs that contribute to equipping its graduates with the abilities and skills that enable them to build the country’s future.”
