In addition to TAMUQ, Education City hosts several other academic institutions, including the Weill Cornell Medical School, Carnegie-Mellon University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Northwestern University, University College London, Georgetown University, and Hamad bin Khalifa University. As international institutions of higher learning, TAMUQ and its partners in Education City have significantly contributed to the development of post-secondary education and cultural growth in Qatar.
