How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Middle East International School (MIS)!

Students from many different countries with a wide range of education system and curriculum are welcome to apply at MIS. Please know that our Admissions team follow a specific procedure with regards to our admission and registration process, which help us determine whether a new student applicant is a good match for our school.

A student’s application is considered based on the following factors and priority sequence:

  • Seat availability
  • Grade level placement (in accordance with the Ministry of Education’s international education system equivalency table)
  • Student’s age
  • Previous academic and behavior records (including the recommendation form)
  • Admission test results
  • Siblings already enrolled in MIS
  • Qualified siblings also applying at MIS
  • Students coming from the U.S.

Kindly take the time to read through our following step-by-step process, in order to ensure that your child’s application will be accommodated equitably.

Step 1: APPLICATION PROCESS

  • The MIS Admission Packet, which includes the Student Application Form, is available as a hard copy in the Administration Office or can be downloaded from our website: www.misqatar.com.
  • General inquiries about admissions will be addressed by the Front Office Secretary. Further information about MIS’s curriculum, policies and procedure may also be provided by our staff in-charge of coordinating our Admissions-Registration process.
    • It is important that all required documents, enlisted on the Student Application Form, are submitted along with the completed form to the Administration, in order to proceed to the next step of the process.
  • For students transferring from another school in Qatar, the following requirements are necessary from the first step of the Admission process:

    • Fully completed Student Application Form
    • Copies of the current school report card (including the most recent term report)
    • Completed recommendation form from the School Head/Counselor/Teacher of their school
    • Copies (back-to-back) of Qatar IDs for both parents and the student
    • Copy of birth certificate

    For students who are new in Qatar, the following requirements are necessary from the first step of the Admission process:

    • Fully completed Student Application Form
    • Copies of the current school report card (including the most recent term report)
    • Completed recommendation form from the School Head/Counselor/Teacher of their school
    • Copy of student’s latest passport
    • Copy of birth certificate
    • Copies (back-to-back) of Qatar ID of both parents and student*

    * If the Qatar ID is still under process, the sponsor parent is required to submit a letter from their company stating that their family visas are being processed accordingly.

    Step 2: PARENT/STUDENT INTERVIEW AND ADMISSION TEST

    • Once all the required documents have been received and crosschecked, parents will be contacted either via phone call or email with regards to the following step of the admission process.
    • The student will be scheduled for a KG assessment or admission test (for grades 1 – 12). The admission test includes Reading, Language Usage, and Math, consisting of 25 items per section. The test may take approximately 1 to 2 hours.
    • Payment of the Application and Placement Fee is required at this point (QR. 204/-).
    • Once the student has sat for the admission test, the results will be declared within a week’s time. Parents will be notified only via email about the results and the status of their child’s application. For KG students, parents can already gain some feedback from the KG Principal about the outcome of the assessment.
    • A parent/student interview may also follow this testing procedure to further discuss the test results and status of a student.
    • The acceptance of a student into MIS are considered based on the following factors:

    1) Availability of a seat and grade-level eligibility requirements
    2) Student’s previous academic/behavior records
    3) Admission test results
    4) Parent interview

    • In cases where in a student does not successfully meet the grade level expectations on the admission test, the application will either be rejected or deliberated further through a formal meeting arranged between the parent, student and Principal/Admissions team. Based on the outcome of the meeting, the student may be recommended for acceptance under a conditional or probationary admission status. The parents will be obliged to sign on the conditions on which their child will be admitted into MIS to confirm that they agree accordingly.

    Step 3: REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION AND PAYMENT FORMALITIES

    • As per the Ministry’s registration policy, in order for a student to be officially registered in any school in Qatar, it is mandatory to secure the Qatar ID prior to Registration.
    • At this point, all required documents should have been provided to complete the student’s application file.
    • When a student is confirmed, the parents will be duly informed via email with an acceptance letter from MIS that parents must sign off on and bring with them during the registration formality.
    • Parents can then proceed to the Accounts Office to pay the registration fee to secure the seat for their child in the grade level they applied for.
    • All other financial and logistic obligations (i.e. tuition fee payment, bus arrangements, school uniform and books) will discussed and arranged through the Accounts Office.
    • Please note that the section that your child will be assigned to will only be announced at the beginning of the school year on September 2016.

    Important Note:

    New students, who have yet to secure their Qatar ID, may follow the Admissions-Registration procedure through to Step 2 but will only be registered in the school system and begin attending the classes when the requisite document is submitted.

    No student will be permitted to sit in their class without a Qatar ID and if the required school fees have not yet been paid.

    MIS will not reserve a seat for the student for more than one month after the admission process is initiated, unless the parent had duly notified the Administration about the status of their (pending) application.
