Doha, June 03 (QNA) – Qatar University (QU) announced that 622 male and female students have been admitted to 63 postgraduate programs offered for the next academic class of 2023.

In a statement, the QU outlined that the percentage of accepted students in PhD, Master, diploma, and postgraduate certificates from the total number of students reached 15 percent, 70 percent, 7.5 percent, and 3.5 percent respectively.

Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Eiman Mustafawi congratulated the students that have been admitted to postgraduate programs, pointing out that she is proud of seeing a new cohort of promising students joining various disciplines wishing them an academic career full of excellence, adding that she aspires to see their contributions and achievements in QU as a qualitative addition to the college community and promoting a postgraduate community that abounds with scientific excellence.
