Education City

A unique ecosystem of academic excellence

Education City, the flagship initiative of Qatar Foundation, is a 3,300-acre state-of-the-art campus that hosts branch campuses of some of the world’s leading educational institutes, along with a homegrown university, and other research and scholastic centers.

All international branch campuses in Education City provide world-renowned academic programs based on the established curricula and expertise of their home campuses, collectively making Education City a unique model of academic excellence that is pioneering a new approach to multidisciplinary and global education.

Some key features of Education City include:

International degree, regional culture.

By studying at any of our branch campuses in Qatar, our students receive a Western education in a Middle Eastern setting. Upon graduation, they obtain the same degree as that from the university’s home campus.

Apply once, study everywhere.

Our students have the unique opportunity to cross-register for classes at multiple universities, and potentially pursue joint minors and certificates that consist of taking classes from different branch campuses, letting them create their own customized learning experience.

Test your theories.

Researchers, scholars, and students can pursue their research interests through a variety of grants, fellowships, and funding opportunities. Our faculty and students regularly receive research funding and mentorship from leading academics and industry leaders in the field.

Engage minds from around the world.

Our campus also serves as a platform for some of the world’s leading conferences in education, health, and innovation. Every year, the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) and the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) bring the world’s greatest minds and ideas to Education City.

Accelerate your ideas.

Professionals and students can nurture their entrepreneurial concepts and turn them into real-life projects and businesses through our technology hub Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP), which offers a range of accelerator, incubation, and funding programs.
