University description (as per official university website)

Our Vision and Mission
Qatar University is an intellectual and scholarly community characterized by open discussion, the free exchange of ideas, respectful debate, and a commitment to rigorous inquiry.

All members of the University - faculty, staff, and students - are expected to advance the scholarly and social values embodied by the university.

Our Vision

Qatar University shall be a model national university in the region, recognized for high-quality education and research and for being a leader of economic and social development.

Our Mission

Qatar University is the national institution of higher education in Qatar. It provides high quality undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare competent graduates, destined to shape the future of Qatar. The university community has diverse and committed faculty who teach and conduct research, which address relevant local and regional challenges, advance knowledge, and contribute actively to the needs and aspirations of society

Our History
In 1973, having foreseen education as a principle contribution to its expanding society, the Emir of Qatar issued a decree proclaiming the establishment of Qatar's first national College of Education. Among a small population, the college admitted a respectable 57 male and 93 female students in its first year.

After several semesters, rapid development of the country made it necessary to expand upon the College of Education to accommodate new areas of specialization. In 1977, Qatar University was founded with four colleges: Education; Humanities and Social Sciences; Sharia, Law, and Islamic Studies; and Science. By 1985, two additional colleges, Engineering and Business and Economics, had been established.

At present, Qatar University is comprised of seven colleges; the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business & Economics, College of Education, College of Engineering, College of Law, College of Pharmacy, and the College of Sharia and Islamic Studies.


Since its inception in 1973, Qatar University has become the country’s national and major institution of higher education. It is comprised of seven colleges: the College of Education, the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Sharia & Islamic Studies, the College of Engineering, the College of Law, the College of Pharmacy, and the College of Business & Economics.

Programs offered at the University attract professional recognition through their emphasis on close working links with business, industry, and other professions. At the same time, however, they emphasize the importance of a solid base of general skills and knowledge through a carefully designed Core Curriculum, which was conceived with an eye to the needs and requirements of Qatari society and its labor market. The University's teaching and research are innovative, collaborative, enterprising, and flexible endeavors, based on the intelligent use of emerging technologies.

In addition to two notable libraries, Qatar University boasts a number of support-for-learning centers and units, including an audio library, an e-library, advanced internet facilities, an educational-technology center, advanced video-conferencing facilities, and an active Office for Faculty and Instructional Development.

QU has always strived to fulfill its mission as the country's beacon of knowledge. With seven colleges, over 30,900 graduates, and a faculty community of almost 700 members, the University is also an active member in several prestigious regional and international associations, including the Union of Arab Universities, the league of Islamic Universities, and the International Association of Universities, to name just a few.

Qatar University offers over 60 specializations (the widest range in the country), and boasts substantial research and academic infrastructure, as well as the reputation as a leading center for research in the country. As a result, QU has been successful in attracting a large number of distinguished scholars, researchers, and faculty members from other Arab countries and beyond.
