Qatar UK alumni network

The UK and Qatar have an important, long-standing relationship, strengthened through the strong individual connections that many Qataris enjoy with the UK through their attendance at academic institutions. The British Council Qatar would like to connect with anyone who has worked or studied in the UK to join our group of alumni.

The Qatar UK Alumni Network was launched in March 2013 in the presence of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and HE Dr Mohammed al-Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry.

The alumni network offers a programme of activities that will provide its members with many opportunities to meet and exchange experiences; to learn and develop their careers; to support and mentor recent graduates and to inspire the next generation of leaders in Qatar. 

You are eligible to apply if:

  • you are Qatari or resident in Qatar
  • have spent a minimum of one month studying in the UK at university degree level at an officially recognised/listed UK higher or further education institution that appears on one of these lists:

Recognized UK education institutions

Listed UK education institutions

If you would like to apply, please complete the Qatar UK alumni network registration form.
