The four-year curriculum outlined below is intended primarily for high school students. Transfer students who have prior post-secondary credit in non-nursing support courses may be eligible to complete the BN in a shorter timeframe. Details will be made available to students as their credit is evaluated at the time of admission, and will be dependent on clinical and faculty resources and student demand.
Promotion from year to year is by recommendation of the Qatar Faculty. For purposes of promotion, the academic year is considered to be from September 1 of one year to August 31 of the next. Hence, Spring Intersession grades are calculated with the previous Fall/Winter Term grades. The minimum requirement is a grade point average of 2.00 in each of the first two years and 2.50 in each of the last two years.
Duration of Degree Program
Except with special permission of the Dean, the BN degree must be completed within seven calendar years from the date of initial registration in the program.
Students transferring from other institutions or faculties within the University are considered on an individual basis. However, students will be required to complete the equivalent of not fewer than 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents), at least 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents), of which must be nursing courses taken as a BN student.
