Important Notes:

  • All supporting documents should be submitted in advance of the suggested target date for application completion. To receive full consideration, your application and all supporting documents should be received by March 1.
  • Questions about financial aid should be directed to Qatar Foundation. You may complete the Financial Aid Application Form directly from Hamad Bin Khalifa University.  You should submit this aid form even before your Six-year medical Program decision is known. Qatar Foundation will thus be able to perform a needs analysis so that a more efficient determination of aid may be made if and when you are accepted.


You are required to submit results of either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT. It is highly recommended that you also submit scores of SAT Subject Tests in mathematics (level II) and two sciences. Subject Tests are independent of any particular textbook or method of instruction, thus allowing you to demonstrate your strength in relevant subjects in comparison with students who have attended different schools and systems worldwide.

You must take tests early enough to allow submission of scores prior to March 1, the deadline for application completion. We urge you to plan your test calendar well in advance because you must register for each test about one month before the test date, and it generally takes four to six weeks after the test for scores to be reported.

Follow the links below to plan your test dates and registration.
