AFG College with the University of Aberdeen welcomed its new cohort of undergraduate business and accounting students at their campus in Al Mamoura Doha.
Attending the first day of their student induction programme, over one hundred and fifty students completed their registration and were introduced to their university lecturers and personal tutors who offered a guided tour of the institutions facilities and the range of student services available to them.
AFG College with the University of Aberdeen currently offers two bachelor degrees with honours specialising in business management and accountancy and finance.
The new students will commence their studies on this September and will join the university’s existing student body who commenced their studies the previous academic year.
The college chairperson, Dr Sheikha Aisha bint Faleh Al Thani commented, “it’s so encouraging to see so many new students starting their academic journey with the University of Aberdeen here in Qatar. Aberdeen University is not only one of the oldest UK universities, it is also ranked within the top 1% of global universities for research excellence and student outcomes. I am delighted to be part of this great institution and looking forward to the introduction of new postgraduate management degrees which we are hoping to launch this October.”
A further fifty new students are expected to join the Qatar campus over the coming few days, resulting in over two hundred undergraduate students joining the 2018 academic year.
