The Academic Bridge Programme (ABP), of pre-university education at Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), celebrated the graduation of the 18th batch of students and the second batch of the Academic Officer Programme at a ceremony held at the Qatar National Convention Center. A total of 274 graduates, out of them 138 from the Academic Officer Programme of the Qatari Armed Forces, have graduated from ABP this year, bringing the total number of graduates from the two programmes to more than 3,500 since the programme established in 2001. The number of Qatari students who graduated from the 2019 batch in the two programmes exceeded 90%. Many graduates were accepted this year at one or more of QF's partner universities in Education City. Furthermore, 23 students participated in ABP as part of an agreement between ABP and Qatar Airways to enhance their academic skills in English and mathematics to prepare them for aviation schools in Europe and the United States. In a speech at the ceremony, ABP director Dr Bryan Lewallen praised the 2019 batch. He also noted graduates of the Academic Officer Programme, who will join 286 students of the 2018 batch. He pointed out that the Academic Officer Programme, which has now completed its second year, is a joint project between QF, the Ministry of Defence and the Qatari Armed Forces, and aims to prepare students for success at the university level and as a future officer in the Qatari Armed Forces.
