Throughout the academic year, QatarDebate held training workshops for all those interested in the field of debates, and the establishment of the first and second leagues enhanced the skills of the debaters and gave them good experience to get to know the atmosphere of competitions, understand the debate and analyze arguments correctly.

The results were promising, and Qatar University has always climbed on the podiums in these tournaments. At the level of teams, the fourth team from Qatar University represented by (Abdullah Mahran - Kinan Al-Qassab - Ahmed Mustafa) managed to grab the third place as the best team in the national championship.

The Current Club President, Amal Abu Bakr Ahmed, said “I feel proud of all my fellow participants and winners of this tournament. Over the course of the year, these students were able to excel in the field of debates and discuss all the controversial topics raised in a logical and rational manner. Their culture in all fields was the key to their victory in most of the rounds, as the topics raised were not limited to the social sphere only, but also extended to discuss the human rights, humanitarian, economic and even digital aspects. I thank them for their participation and wish them success in their academic career.”
