DOHA: The Admissions Department at Qatar University (QU) yesterday held an orientation event for new students for Spring 2018. 

During the orientation students registered into their respective programs and were familiarised with the university, its programs, academic and extra-curricular activities, policies, services, and campus resources.

The three-day event is designed to welcome the new batch of students into the QU community, to assist them with any personal, financial, and housing questions or issues, and to give them the chance to get involved in the QU community. In all, 1,121 students (375 males and 746 females) were admitted for Spring 2018. They were provided with the opportunity to gain relevant information that would ease their transition into the new academic environment. They got acquainted with their colleagues and toured the campus and its facilities. 

They also got the chance to meet with the deans, associate deans, and administrators of their colleges. The event also included an exhibition featuring 12 booths and showcasing the various services offered by the University. 

QU VP for Student Affairs Dr Khalid Al Khanji welcomed the newly-admitted students and wished them a successful academic journey. 

He said: “We are here to assist and support all students to ensure they have an optimal academic experience. This significant event contributes to enhancing the students’ introduction to university life and to helping them to become familiar with the challenging and exciting opportunities that the University offers. We look forward to celebrating the innovation and creativity that they will bring to the QU community and the society.”

The Admissions Department noted that the New Student Orientation is the starting point for all new students in order to be fully prepared from their very first day of the semester. Orientation exercises will continue until February 7.
