High school students attending the roadshow were able access information about scholarships and funding opportunities, cross-registration classes, student housing, and life in Qatar.

“Education City is home to branch campuses of some of the worlds leading higher education institutions. For Kuwaiti students who want to obtain a world-class education without having to travel too far from home, our universities offer the possibility of developing their skills and potential academically and personally in a safe and multicultural environment,” Director, Internal Communication at QF Kholoud al-Ali said.
