Senior Convocation 2012


Every year, The Edge creates a film for the Convocation ceremony, inviting graduating students from each of the world-class universities to take part, and celebrate both their achievements and their hopes for the future. For 2012’s film, we set out to create something new and fresh; a more thoughtful film which focused on the students’ aspirations and how they felt their time at university had readied them for the future. The end result is a highly-visual documentary film which has the theme of ‘Light’ at its core – and closes with a stunning sequence including a visual metaphor of the students leaving university to ‘Light up the World’.

Qatar Foundation established Education City to attract and educate the best students in Qatar and across the Middle East.
