Higher Education in Qatar:
As a result of the rapid development of international online education institutions in the United States, such as the University of Phoenix, students across the Middle East are accessing high-quality university-level education by way of distance learning programs and online classes. Students in Qatar are increasingly exploring such online education opportunities in hopes of developing tangible, globalized skills in business, technology, and health care.
As noted by Qatar's "Higher Education Study":
"Students graduating from high school today are entering an increasingly competitive, rapidly changing global society. To meet the new demands of the 21st century, students will need to develop a wide range of skills and knowledge. Increasingly, higher education will serve as the driving force for students to gain these skills and knowledge needed to succeed. The Supreme Education Council’s Higher Education Institute recognizes the fundamental role higher education will play in enabling Qatar’s youth and the entire nation to prosper.
Through a variety of scholarship programs, the Higher Education Institute is encouraging Qatar’s youth to pursue higher education and helping prepare them for the rigors they will face in applying to and attending the top colleges and universities around the world. It is working to help students advance their dreams, explore their interests and improve their abilities, while addressing the evolving needs of Qatar’s labor market."
