Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar is participating in the annual Education City Road Show for the sixth straight year which comes as complementary to its long-term recruitment strategy in Qatar and the region. Liz Kepferle, Georgetown‘s Admission Director, said they have been impressed with the quality of Qatari students whose interest level continues to improve. “We look forward to being able to admit to Georgetown more Qatari students in 2011 and beyond, while maintaining our student diversity.” Georgetown continues to recruit applicants within Qatar by sponsoring individual university recruitment events in which the Office of Admissions reaches out to both Qatari and international schools, while the international recruitment efforts are driven by the Education City Road Show. The Discover Education City Road Show offers the opportunity for SFS Qatar campus representatives including Admissions, current students and alumni to speak with the prospective students, schools counsellors, Ministry of Education officials and the media to showcase the broad scope of the academic programmes offered at Georgetown. “Well... I wouldn’t have been in Georgetown if it weren’t for the admissions team that came to Kuwait. I attended the info session that Education City universities gave at our school which made all my plans to study in the US/Canada seemed irrational; had it not been for that info session, I would never have known that I could attain the best education only an hour away from home,” said Donia Al Hashem of Class 2012. For the past five years, Georgetown in Qatar has offered bachelor degrees in Culture and Politics and International Politics and is currently launching the International Economics major as a result of the increasing regional demand for Georgetown degrees.
