Second Phase of the Gradual Return Plan

As part of the plan to gradually resume the face-to-face educational process on campus and based on the evaluation of the current health and safety indicators, the university is starting the second phase of the gradual return for the 2nd stage students starting Sunday, 26 September, 2021. This category includes students enrolled in undergraduate courses with numbers 400 and above in all university colleges.

This is in addition to the continuation of on-campus lectures for graduate students and students who are registered in courses already attending their face-to-face classes.

We would like to remind our students, who will resume attendance on campus, to abide by the below mentioned important instructions:

  • Review the course schedule and make sure of the lecture venues as changes may occur.
  • Arrive early to avoid late arrival due to the implementation of precautionary measures at the entrances of the buildings and classrooms.
  • Bring a tablet device (iPad, laptop, etc.) with headphones. During the gradual transition to face-to-face classes, a lecture may coincide with an online lecture of another course before or after the lecture taking place on campus leaving the student with limited time to return home to attend the online class.
  • Ensure the EHTERAZ code is green before coming to the campus. Wear masks correctly while on campus (especially in classrooms, laboratories, and indoor places), abide by social distancing guidelines, and other directives issued by the Ministry of Public Health.
  • Students from the most at-risk groups must submit a request for exemption from attending classes, together with certificates explaining the student’s health status and a physician’s recommendation. Such documents shall be issued by Hamad Medical Corporation or the Primary Health Care Corporation and submitted using the following link ( The competent committee at the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs will examine the exemption requests and take the appropriate decision. This measure applies to all students regardless of their health condition, or if the student obtained an exception in previous semesters. For any questions or inquiries, you may contact
