QU collaborates with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education on Al-Qabas Virtual Program 2020

2020-06-02

Qatar University’s Foundation Program (FP), under the Deanship of General Studies, in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Affairs at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOE), is organizing “Al-Qabas Virtual Program 2020” under the theme: “To prepare female high school students for a successful university experience.” The student outreach initiative will be held from June 7 to June 11, 2020.
In light of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and QU’s decision to switch to distance education in order to ensure the safety of students, Al-Qabas Program 2020 will be held through virtual learning platforms for distance learning.
The program aims to raise awareness among female high school students regarding the various skills needed for university life through a variety of educational and virtual sessions 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 STEM colleges, College of Medicine, and QU services available. By introducing students to study skills and test taking strategies, students will be better equipped for their educational journey. Following the completion of the program, students who attended all program sessions will be awarded 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.
