Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Semester: 12-15 semester credits

Students who elect to study abroad in Doha with API at Qatar University (QU) choose from courses in the science, engineering, and sports management fields open to international and Qatari students through the Direct Enrollment Track. Arabic language courses may also be available. Contact the API office for details.

ACADEMIC CALENDAR AND FALL PROGRAM

The academic calendar in Qatar is slightly different from that of most U.S. universities. The fall semester at Qatar University starts later than the average fall semester in the United States, and as such, the fall semester does not end until late January. Classes are held throughout the month of January, followed by final exams.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive a transcript from Qatar University upon successful completion of their program.
