Distribution of graduation gowns

The university announced the distribution of graduation gowns to all female graduates, and the opportunity to purchase and pay for the gown electronically. The gown was distributed to the graduates on campus, with approximately 1730 students receiving this year’s graduation uniform. The Graduation Ceremony Organizing Committee worked diligently to provide a smooth and convenient experience for the distribution of the gown by organizing a schedule that considers the appropriate times for all graduates, including distributing the attire on a Saturday.

The unique design of the new graduation uniform for female graduates is inspired by Qatar University’s logo which symbolizes the intertwining of Islamic/Arabic heritage with the educational system, where the embroidered geometric shapes on the graduation cloak symbolize the authentic Islamic/Arabic heritage, which forms part of QU’s logo and represents a symbol of pride, while the maroon color symbolizes the State of Qatar’s flag which corresponds to the history of the country and its civilizational dimension.

Rehearsals

Conducting the graduation rehearsal is an essential part of ensuring that the ceremony runs smoothly according to the schedule. This allows students to understand the protocol and procedures and for the ceremony to proceed according to the program and within the planned time frame.

During the rehearsal, graduates are provided with the most important instructions, such as registration, graduation gown protocol, as well as information related to the presence of parents and companions, and other important information. The graduates also learn about the details of the ceremony program, the method of sitting in the approved order, and the mechanism of ascending to the podium according to their colleges and degrees.

Graduation website

The website is one of the most important sources through which accurate and comprehensive information about the graduation ceremony is provided, which is very important for both students and parents. The site includes information such as dates, location, graduation gowns, invitation cards, services provided to the public during the ceremony, entrance gates, parking lots, and others. The organizing committee regularly updates the website to include all the necessary details and is a key source of communication between the university, students and parents.
