There is no application deadline, but it is recommended that the admission process be initiated early on. Applications are accepted but place offers are granted based on spaces available throughout the school year.

Admission Decisions

Admission decisions are made after careful evaluation of the candidates. Results of diagnostic testing and previous school records are considered on a case-by-case basis. Additional criteria for admission include motivation, social and emotional development, willingness to work hard, and the ability of ISC-Doha to accommodate the needs of the candidate.

Please note that, in order to complete the registration, the above-mentioned documents should be presented upon initiation of the admission process in support of the application. A final admission decision cannot be made without this information.

Once accepted and the required fees paid, a place for the student is reserved.

Admissions Policy

Non-Selective Admission Policy

The SABIS® Educational System is highly academically-oriented without being highly selective. The criterion for acceptance in a grade level is academic attainment, not age, although age acts as a limiting factor.  It is possible to find up to a two-year age range among student in the same class. In general, any student willing to learn is accepted.

Placement Overview

There are no academic requirements for acceptance into Levels A, B and C (three to five and a half years of age). Prospective students at these levels are interviewed; they must be toilet-trained and able to speak and follow simple instructions.

All other prospective students take diagnostic tests in core subjects. These tests help to determine if the student has attained the minimum expected standard for each subject. The school then makes final placement decisions but can resort to the various strategies at its disposal to help bring a student to the required level. For example, there is the option of attending summer school or perhaps extra lessons or intensive classes in a subject. Special academic support is taken very seriously by the school.

Appointments for diagnostic testing can be made by contacting the admission office through the school phone numbers or email address.
