Admissions Workshop to be held by Northwestern University on 24th Jan Doha, January 23- Northwestern University in Qatar (NUQ) has set in motion a series of workshops and tours to assist students and their guardians in preparing strong applications for admissions. The university’s admissions deadline is March 1, 2013. The university is inviting prospective students and their guardians to a session titled ‘Discover Northwestern University’, which features a presentation and guided tour of the school’s programmes and facilities, including its state-of-the-art studio building on January 24. Another session on ‘Decision Makers Perspective and Financing Your Education’ will outline Qatar Foundation, Higher Education Institution and US Federal Student Financial Aid as well the criteria that NU-Q admissions committees look for in a student’s application. This final event will take place on January 31, NUQ said in a media statement issued here Tuesday. The workshops are free and open to the public and are streamed live for interested applicants living outside Qatar. Online viewers are also able to send questions through instant messaging and receive responses from admissions staff on hand. NUQ Dean and CEO Everette E. Dennis said previous years have shown that the workshops improve the quality of applications and help students and their parents decide on a major course of study. “Our admissions staff, faculty and current students give applicants a clear idea of what it means to study at NU-Q and the opportunities available for them here, including our residency programs that allow students to gain on-the-ground experience in the US,” Dennis said. NUQ Admissions Specialist Amira Hariri, said parents have the biggest impact on their children’s choices, yet often lack a clear picture around what the study of communication involves. “To address this we have opened the door for both walk-in students and parents outside of the scheduled workshop times, and offer them brief one-on-one information sessions as well as quick tours of the university facilities,” Hariri said.
