An HBKU information session in progress.

Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation, is hosting a series of information sessions from January until March to give prospective students an opportunity to learn about its innovative graduate programmes. 
The information sessions will provide “in-depth insight into the graduate programmes with a focus on curriculum, unique research opportunities and admission requirements”, HBKU has said in a statement. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet faculty members and current students to hear about the benefits of being enrolled at HBKU.  
Interested applicants living abroad may apply for admission until March 1, while the deadline for local applications is April 1.
Dr Khaled B Letaief, HBKU provost, said: “We invite the community to come and see how HBKU is developing unique academic programmes and producing high-quality research through the work of its faculty and students to make a difference in Qatar and across the globe. Students who are interested in innovative thinking, critical reasoning and using their education to make an impact should come and learn about how they will be able to do this as graduate students at HBKU.”    
More than 600 students from nearly 60 different countries are currently enrolled in 17 graduate programmes at HBKU. Further, scientists and researchers at HBKU’s three research institutes – Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute, Qatar Computing Research Institute and Qatar Biomedical Research Institute – have spearheaded research that has held “significant relevance for the local and global innovation landscape”, the statement notes.
The upcoming series of information sessions will begin on January 16 at the College of Islamic Studies Building in Education City. The college’s staff and faculty will introduce the Master of Arts in Islamic Studies and Master of Science in Islamic Finance to prospective students and remain available to respond in detail to queries.
