Delegates from Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU) six colleges are currently in Russia meeting students and fellow academics with the objective being to heighten awareness of the University’s dynamic programmes and encourage high-calibre candidates to continue their studies with one of the Gulf region’s leading research-focused universities.
HBKU had a booth at the latest QS World Grad School Tour educational fair.
The event provided prospective students and graduates with opportunities to meet faculty members and consider study options based on the University’s multidisciplinary programmes.
The delegation also visited the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, the European University in St Petersburg, and a number of other leading universities across Russia, to introduce Hamad bin Khalifa University and to highlight what makes studying in Qatar a unique and distinctive choice.
The delegation reviewed the efforts of its six faculties, their potentials and the vital programmes they offer, to encourage highly qualified candidates from Russia and other countries to continue their studies at one of the leading research universities in the Gulf region.
Speaking after the most recent university visit, Vice-President of Student Affairs at HBKU Maryam Hamad al-Mannai said: “One of HBKU’s core missions is to discover innovative solutions that are locally relevant but with global impact. We can only achieve the latter by being a truly global university.”
She added, “To this end, we’re encouraged by the potential that Russian students and graduates could bring to our programmes. Our delegates have been consistently impressed with their natural enthusiasm for academic studies as well as their interest in studying overseas. We’re confident that HBKU can make a telling contribution to their academic and professional journeys.”
