There is a lot of work. Our faculty expect a lot from their students. However, we don't think this is a bad thing, and neither do our students. One student found the experience "overwhelming" to start with, but ultimately reassuring. "It's like a journey: you change and improve and, hopefully, by the end of the program, you're going to be ready to enter the profession." said another: "You soon come to realize that faculty and students here are all in the same boat. We have a unique family identity. The door is always open to our professors if we have any problems or don't understand a concept. It's the same way with students here, we all help each other with our studies and are very supportive of each other." Yet another student remarked: "No two days are the same. Then there are all the social and charity events we organize and fund outside of the curriculum, often to help worthy causes in Qatar. We have organized blood drives with Hamad Medical Corporation, fund-raising campaigns, inter-college sports events and community outreach projects, for example."
