Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, Qatar University (QU) will begin celebrations of its 45th graduation starting on 25 May 2022. The graduation ceremony of the Class of 2022 will include graduates (bachelors, diploma, masters and doctorate) of the following semesters: Fall 2021 and Winter 2022, in addition to those who are expected to graduate by the end of Spring 2022.

On this occasion, QU held a press conference yesterday, led by Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Eiman Mustafawi who stressed the importance of this event saying, “The annual graduation ceremony is the most important event of the year, as it represents a new era for graduates.”

As QU graduates its 44th cohort of graduates, the university continues to chronicle a long history spanning decades in which it contributes heavily to Qatar’s development and prosperity, through boosting the labor market with qualified graduates.
Dr. Eiman added, “The Class of 2022 includes 3436 female and male graduates in a variety of disciplines and various degrees, bachelors, masters and doctor’s.”

“The Council of Ministers have recently announced the easing of precautions regarding the coronavirus pandemics, to which the University quickly reacted by making a number of decisions regarding the graduation. This includes increasing the number of invitation cards for graduates’ families. For distinguished students, this means each graduate will be allowed four cards and five for each graduate for the individual college ceremonies.”

Dr. Eiman also discussed the importance of the QU graduation ceremony for the nation, saying, “The University is working continuously to strengthen and develop its programs to meet the needs of the labor market in its various disciplines, in order to serve the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030. The University reviews the quality of its academic outputs and their suitability in relation to the labor market. QU seeks to provide students with skills and abilities that enable them to compete locally and globally.”

In response to a question about preparations for the ceremony, she said, “The University is in the final preparations for the graduation ceremony, the organizing committee has completed the basic preparations for the graduation ceremony and contacted the graduates and sent invitations for them and their families to attend via email. One of the most important developments of the year is the increase in the number of invitations and the opportunity for faculty members wishing to attend the ceremony after a two-year break. In addition, the female graduation gown has been updated following recommendations and suggestions by female graduates. Various teams are also providing services to graduates and responding to their inquiries through a number of means, such as social media, the call center and email. The graduation website is also a great channel with details on the ceremony and various information.”

In response to precautionary measures, Dr. Eiman said, “We have taken precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all; attendees will be required to present a green Ehteraz. For those who wish to wear masks, we will also provide masks for them at the ceremony hall.”

In conclusion, Dr. Eiman Mustafawi expressed deepest appreciation and thanks to the Ministry of Public Health and other parties for their cooperation and support.
