A total of 34 students of UCL Qatar, representing 23 nationalities and speaking 14 different languages, were awarded their diplomas by Prof Anthony Smith, UCL vice-provost, Education and Student Affairs Monday.

UCL Qatar programmes are designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Vocational courses are informed by theory and discussion between highly qualified staff and highly motivated students; and brought to life through the real-time engagement with the field of study.
