Northwestern University in Qatar seeks and attracts students from around the Gulf Region and the world who have succeeded in academics and extracurricular activities throughout their pre-college careers. Admission is competitive.

Final admission decisions take a number of different factors into account. There is no formula—no mechanical combination of test scores and grades that guarantees admissions. We look and value applicants' entire application, from personal essays to teachers’ letters to test scores.
