Teaching will continue to be on campus for all students except for students enrolled in some specific courses. Faculty members teaching these courses will communicate directly with their students to notify them that teaching will be online.
The procedures set by the State of Qatar will be applied and if additional procedures are introduced, they will be announced in due time. For more information, please visit the Government Communication Office website for the latest travel updates.

Categories exempted from on campus attendance of classes

Students who are infected by COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 or in quarantine are expected to adhere to the instructions and guidance of the Ministry of Health. Those students cannot attend the on campus classes unless they can show GREEN Ehteraz.

Those students can continuously monitor and check the content and resources uploaded by the instructor on blackboard including recorded lectures whenever they are available. Moreover, they can communicate with their instructors or teaching assistants in the learning center or academic oases of their colleges to compensate their absences.

Students with chronic diseases who are most at risk of contracting COVID-19 and its complications can apply for an exemption from attending lectures at campus. A health certificate approved and certified by the Ministry of Health should be attached to the request. The certificate should clearly show that the student suffers from a chronic disease or a health condition that may make her/him more vulnerable to infection with the coronavirus Covid-19 or its complications. The request will be presented to the designated committee and the student will be informed of the committee’s decision via his/her university e-mail. Any requests for exemption from attendance due to ordinary illnesses will not be considered, and the days of absence due to regular illnesses will be counted within the maximum permissible limit as per the attendance and absence policy.
No, not necessarily, as the exception depends on the course taken. The student must coordinate with the course instructor and determine the method and mechanism for compensating the lectures that may require the student’s attendance in a safe manner and without direct contact with other students in the same lecture or in the manner determined by the course instructor.
No, all midterm and final exams for all university courses will be held on campus with all precautionary measures taken and in coordination with the courses instructors.
The exemption includes the categories of students who are at high risk themselves of contracting Covid-19 and its complications (those with chronic diseases and the elderly over the age of 60 years) and does not include those with first-degree relatives with chronic diseases.
In this event, the university relinquishes its responsibility in the event that the student has any symptoms or pathological complications that she/he may be exposed to due to her/his violation of the gradual lifting procedures or in the event that she/he does not disclose his health status.
