UCL Qatar welcomes record number of new students for 2018/19 academic year

UCL Qatar has started its new academic year by welcoming one of the biggest MA student intakes since the London-based University set up its operations in Qatar in 2010 in partnership with Qatar Foundation.

Forty-nine graduates from over 25 countries will now begin full or part-time studies on UCL Qatar’s renowned Library and Information Studies MA and Museum and Gallery Practice MA.

UCL’s President & Provost Professor Michael Arthur visited the UCL Qatar campus in Education City, Doha last week and meet the UCL Qatar community and welcome new students.

Welcoming them to Education City, Sam Evans, Director of UCL Qatar, said: “We hope our new joiners are as excited as we are for the term ahead. It’s an incredible intake this year and we’ve got high hopes that the new members of the UCL community will prove to be yet another stand-out set of students.”

The new intake was formally inducted last week with a series of workshops, talks and orientation sessions. They also had the opportunity to meet and speak with UCL Qatar alumni and ask UCL’s Provost about life at UCL at a private event held at Msheireb Museums.

During this event, Professor Arthur had the chance to meet UCL Qatar’s partners, with whom he discussed possibilities to explore future cooperative projects, while continuing to work towards a successful completion of UCL Qatar’s contract with the Qatar Foundation in October 2020. He also confirmed UCL will continue to support its partners in Qatar to continue providing education opportunities for students and develop their workforce, research and academic capabilities.
