What To Expect

During just one short walk—or tram ride—around campus, you could be visiting an Ivy League university, cross the street to browse one of the region’s largest libraries, and then attend an open-mic at the neighboring university behind it.

That’s just how life is when you’re part of the close-knit community at Education City. It’s a place with branch campuses of some of the world’s leading educational institutes, a homegrown research university, start-up incubators, technology parks, heritage sites, cultural institutions, and so much more.

Reviews

Fascinating, educational, cultural experience. The refined side of Doha.

The Emiir's mother Sheikha Moza bint Nasser is the co-founder, and chairperson of the Qatar foundation, and as such "drives" this tour, but Shariff was our guide for the day. Shariff is a pleasant, disarming fellow, and all his connections prove handy for getting you the insider look at all the cultural endeavors Education City has to offer; his explanations both informative and interesting. Our focus was in architecture and culture of Qatar, and Shariff tailored the tour to make it fascinating for us. We particularly enjoyed Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, the Arabian horse stables and stadium, Oxygen Park, the Education City Mosque within the Minaretein building; shaped like a giant stingray, and the Qatar National Library with its modern shelving, and ancient Islamic texts. Here Shariff gave me a better understanding of Islam than I'd been able to acquire with weeks of preparation on the internet. This was an excellent educational experience for both mom and teen boy.
