Qatar University (QU) collaborates with the Office of the Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Affairs at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOE) to prepare students for University.

Qatar University’s Foundation Program (FP), under the Deanship of General Studies, is organizing “Al-Qabas Program 2020” under the theme: “To prepare female high school students for a successful university experience.” The student outreach initiative will be held during schools’ Spring break from March 15 to March 19, 2020.

The aim of the program is to raise awareness among Qatari female high school students to nourish their skills needed to succeed in STEM and medicine fields, which includes study skills and test taking strategies.

In addition, it aims to prepare students for university life through variety of educational activities, events and competitions that are offered in English and develop their English and math skills, thereby paving the way for enrollment in STEM colleges and enhancing students’ chances for success in their future colleges.

Al-Qabas Program also includes orientation sessions about admission and visits to STEM colleges, College of Medicine, and various QU services available. Al-Qabas participants also get the opportunity to attend lectures with current Qatar University students. Following the completion of the program, students will be awarded with certificates of participation.

The program was launched in its 1st edition in the 2018-2019 academic year in collaboration with MoE. 42 female Qatari high school students from grades 10 and 11 participated along with 24 FP faculty and staff members.
