Schools in Qatar
Qatar is home to a number of private schools and GU-Q’s education allowance can be used by eligible employees to cover the costs of tuition for dependent children age 3 through the completion of secondary school in Qatar. There are schools with International, American, British, French, or German curriculum.
The demand for school placement is relatively high and availability can be limited, at times. Some schools have pre-defined priorities for acceptance. We advise all of our incoming employees to start the application process early and to apply to several schools at once. If possible, it is advisable to tour the preferred schools in person.
GU-Q Human Resources can provide a document listing schools in Qatar and highlighting some important considerations. We can also schedule school tours and obtain information about availability in the given age group. For those interested in hearing from other parents, we can equally arrange for a member of our community to share their feedback.
