Welcome to the Foundation Program at Qatar University.
The purpose of the Foundation Program is to prepare students for success at the university level by providing them with the solid skills in English and Mathematics that they need to pursue degrees in Engineering, Pharmacy, the Sciences, and selected concentrations in the Education majors. The use of such pre-university preparation is a common practice in higher education world-wide.
The Foundation Program’s multicultural and multilingual academic and administrative staff strives to provide a successful and positive first-year experience for its students at Qatar University. With a goal of helping new students reach their maximum potential, its highly-qualified English and Mathematics instructors:
- create supportive learning environments,
- differentiate instruction according to students’ readiness levels, interests, and learning styles, and
- provide challenging yet enjoyable interactive classroom activities.
Students who successfully complete the Foundation Program can see the benefits of such a bridge program when they progress smoothly into their majors.
Through its contribution to the preparation of competent students, the Foundation Program is an essential partner in the economic, cultural, and intellectual growth of Qatar University and the country.
