The performance indicators are grouped into five areas:

The Industry Income (7.5%)

Teaching (25%)

QU president Dr Hassan bin Rashid al-Derham expressed his pride in achieving the 52nd place in the Times Higher Education (THE) Asia University Rankings 2020, saying that this achievement highlights QU’s continuous eff orts to advance its standing in the Asia region.

He also stressed the university’s efforts to achieve excellence in education and high quality scientific research and its commitment to provide the best educational means for its students and to motivate them.

In lieu of the same, Qatar University’s National Centre for Educational Development has announced its new interactive initiative, “Your summer with (NCED)” to cultivate the culture of independent and continuous learning among students.

This initiative encourages students to invest their spare time during the annual vacation period in educational work. At the societal level, through this initiative, family and friendship relations between members of the same family are strengthened through the participation of targeted activities. It also contributes to finding ways to enhance social separation and stay at home to prevent the spread of the global epidemic.

The initiative is divided into three sub-initiatives: The first initiative includes the presentation of heritage or global stories dealing with various questions that enhance students’ three main skills, of reading, writing, numerical competence and other sub-skills. The second and third initiatives are done in cooperation with and participation of family members. The second requires discovering the correct solutions to various intelligence puzzles and games. The last initiative is to produce and photograph various projects in a fun and entertaining way that will give them new and useful skills and knowledge.

The centre has announced that those wishing to participate can send answers to story questions or project videos with their data and personal photos to the email address ncedqu20@ for a specialised committee to review the validity of the answers and the suitability of the videos and agree to publish them on NCED’s multiple platforms.
