‘Zwara’, the Arabic (Khaleeji) word for a home visit and get-together, is designed to encourage the community to get familiarized with VCUQatar, the university programs, events and new developments, through an afternoon filled with activities for children, families, community members and prospective students including games, workshops, demonstrations, campus tours and exhibitions.
The open house will offer prospective undergraduate and graduate students from high schools and universities from across the region the opportunity to meet current students and faculty, and learn about the integrative experiences unique to the university’s programs. VCUQatar faculty and staff will be on hand to provide information on curriculum, schedules, course requirements and admission to the university.
