The first cohort of students have graduated at the University of Aberdeen’s Qatar campus.
On Monday (November 4), 42 female students and 37 male students graduated in the University’s first full ceremony held outside of Aberdeen since its formation in 1495.
The degrees were conferred by University Principal & Vice-Chancellor Professor George Boyne at the ceremony in Doha. Many from the University’s senior management attended, including Vice-Princpal for Internationalisation, Professor Richard Wells, Acting Director of Operations and Director of People, Debbie Dyker and Senior Governor Esther Roberton.
The University of Aberdeen opened its first international campus in Qatar in 2017 becoming the first British university offering undergraduate and postgraduate degrees within the State.
Operated in partnership with Al Faleh Group for Educational and Academic Services (AFG) it was established with the aim of offering more citizens the opportunity to study without having to travel abroad – a key barrier to further study for many in Qatar, especially women.
Dr. Sheikha Aisha bint Faleh bin Nasser Al-Thani, Chairperson and founder of Al Faleh Education Holding also attended and spoke at the ceremony where she received an honorary degree from the University.
