GU-Q admission applications close on Feb 1 Jan 24, 2020 0 262 12345 Tribune News NetworkDohaTHE deadline for high school and transfer students to apply for admission to Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) is February 1, Director of Admissions at GU-Q Joseph Hernandez has said.According to a GU-Q press release on Thursday, the university has made the process easy to navigate. Admission counsellors are available daily for consultations and the university’s website includes application requirements, answers to frequently asked questions and programme information. To apply, applicants should submit a personal statement, teacher and counsellor reports, official transcripts and standardised test scores. The application may be completed online.According to Hernandez, while test scores are important for applicants at a competitive school like GU-Q, they are not necessarily the most important part of an application. “We take a holistic approach in considering every admissions application. Application review, which is conducted by a committee of faculty, deans and professional staff, takes many factors into account, including academic achievement and preparedness as evidenced in high school and post-secondary grades, in addition to standardised testing. Our committee must also make recommendations based on each applicant’s motivation and interest in pursuing the degree at GU-Qatar.In the months leading up to the February 1 application deadline, the Admissions staff organised a series of events and open houses featuring Georgetown’s own students and alumni, faculty and dedicated staff, to introduce prospective students to university life and give guidance regarding the application process. Open house events also introduced students to an educational experience that includes community service, travel, experiential learning and a curriculum offered in four majors: Culture and Politics, International Economics, International History, and International Politics. Newly expanded minors available to students include Arabic, Economics, Government, History, Philosophy and Theology.“Our graduates pursue successful careers in a variety of industries, including banking, communications, education, government, sports, consulting, graduate school, and more,” explains Hernandez. “Joining GU-Q means becoming part of a community of learners who share a commitment to making the world a better place. We look forward to meeting the Class of 2024.” Pages 12 RELATED ARTICLES PM MEETS INTERIOR MINISTERS OF SEVERAL COUNTRIES Jan 24, 2020 0 319 Qatar renews call for resolving Gulf crisis through constructive dialogue Jan 24, 2020 0 379 ISL Qatar’s GCCA programmes help raise caring global citizens Jan 24, 2020 0 404 Minister meets US healthcare representatives THE Minister of Public Health HE Dr Hanan Mohamed al Kuwari met a delegation of representatives of a number of American institutions working in the healthcare and social fields in the country, headed by the Senior Vice ..
