Education & Training Mission to Doha

15 06 2016

  • Pathfinder Trade & Invest will lead, in November 2016,  their second Education & Training sector Trade Mission to Qatar.

    About the mission:

    This Education & Training Sector Mission will visit Doha from 5th to 8th November 2016.
    The in-market programme will be arranged and set up by the British Chamber of Commerce Qatar on behalf of UKTI Doha and Pathfinder Trade & Invest.
    The Mission Leader has firsthand experience in doing business in Qatar and will give delegates full in-market support.  
    An “Early Bird Discount” will be available to delegates joining the Mission prior to Thursday 22nd September.
  • Market information:
  • Due to the expected increase in population and Qatar’s move away from dependency on the hydrocarbon industry education, training and research are priority areas.
  • Qatar’s Emir, Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, who was educated at the UK’s Sherborne School (international College) and subsequently attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst from where he graduated in 1998, has prioritised the domestic welfare of Qataris, leading to huge investments in healthcare, education and infrastructure.
  • The Qataris are keen to see a larger presence from the UK, both in the form of British universities setting up in Qatar, but also teaching and research staff; there are also opportunities for vocational training, British training materials and software.
  • Links with the UK are growing and our institutions are exporting their expertise. University College London was the first European University to establish a campus in Qatar’s Education City.
