QFI is partnering with Akadeenia, a multicultural organization specialized in the academic counseling and advancement and personal development of students, in order to support students in every country as they begin the exciting but often nerve-racking process of selecting and applying to universities.

Through QFI’s online forum, YALLAH, Akadeenia will offer eight sessions focused on the process of getting you to your dream university – from choosing the right school, submitting the best possible application, to preparing for the big move. If you are not yet registered to YALLAH, and would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please, contact Margaret Kahn (mkahn [at] qfi [dot] org), in order to open an account.
Discussions will be led by Mounir Nsouli, Akadeenia’s founder and CEO.  Here is the list of topics with its timeline:
Oct. 14: Introduction
Oct. 16: My College Experience
