High-quality, well-delivered information is a basic expectation in college, but an excellent university also anticipates the need for students to develop their individual strengths, promoting confidence as well as skills and knowledge. The curriculum and courses available to NU-Q students provide a flexible framework, helping them develop a range of skills as they work toward their highest potentials.
NU-Q's partnership with Qatar Foundation in Education City illustrates Qatar's commitment to offering students high caliber education as well as an internationally renowned degree, which is identical to that at our home campus in Evanston, Illinois, USA.
