Qatar - UCQ holds introductory school visits in collaboration with education ministry MoEHE

(MENAFN- Gulf Times) The University of Calgary in Qatar (UCQ) hosted approximately 200 students in a series of introductory school visits, launched in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE). The visits took place on October 20 and 21 on UCQ's campus and welcomed boys and girls from 10 schools.
UCQ dean and professor Dr Deborah White said the initiative presents a great opportunity for UCQ to motivate young students and give them a clear idea of what it means to become a nurse and the instrumental role that nurses play in supporting the country's health vision and aspirations.
The introductory school visits included a tour of the campus and a series of workshops and presentations by Dr White and the Student and Enrolment Services team.
Participating students engaged in interactive sessions and experimental activities as they explored UCQ's Experiential Learning Centre, Simulation Centre and laboratory.
Sessions and tours were held in smaller groups and social distancing measures were implemented in line with Covid-19 precautionary procedures and protocols.
UCQ's Student and Enrolment Services director Dr Mohamoud Adam thanked the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) for launching the successful initiative.
The MoEHE, represented by the Academic and Career Counselling office – Department of Educational Guidance in the Education Affairs Sector, has launched the initiative in partnership with leading universities and educational institutions to showcase the wide range of science and technology programmes offered in Qatar with a focus on encouraging students to choose scientific and technological tracks and disciplines.
Ahmed Nasser al-Balam, department head at the MoEHE, thanked UCQ for its continued collaboration and for giving students the opportunity to learn more about nursing, which is one of the most in-demand professions in Qatar.
Al-Balam added that this initiative aims to help preliminary students discover their interests and skills and encourage Qatari students to enroll in scientific disciplines to fulfill the needs of the local market.
