The College has over 1,900 students on roll, ranging from preschool through to a very active and successful sixth form of 240 students. Over the last decade the College has developed a reputation as one of the very best International schools in the Gulf with a unique atmosphere that marks us out as special.

There is an energy, joy in learning, enthusiasm and dynamism apparent throughout the College, and it is clear to everyone that our young people are both happy and challenged. We believe that the 'DC' experience should be a positive and indelible one, which remains alive within each student for life. It is our responsibility to inspire and challenge everyone in an environment that makes learning enjoyable and which meets the hopes, ambitions, skills and aspirations of every student.

Doha College is currently accepting applications for the enrolment of new students for certain year groups. Application forms are processed at a cost of QR 200 per form. A separate form will need to be filled out for each child applying for a place. This charge covers administrative costs and does not in any sense guarantee the applicant a place at Doha College. All applications received are placed onto a waiting list. The fee of QR 200 is non-refundable and the application stays valid for a two academic years.

Thank you for considering Doha College.
