Choosing the right school is one of the most critical decisions a parent will make for their child. Qatar Academy Msheireb is committed to ensuring that applicants and their parents are well advised so that they can make a confident and informed choice. As a school community, with an open and inclusive admissions policy, we welcome students with diverse backgrounds and a range of talents and abilities.

4. Checklist Items Pending parent completion
Email notification will be sent regarding any pending checklist items requiring completion. These items can be completed via your Application Status login page at https://qam.openapply.eu. On completion, please move on to the next stage of the admission process.

5. Testing Schedule
At this stage, parents should understand that this is an application for admission and completion and submission of the online admission form does not guarantee enrolment. The Admissions Office reviews the completed online applications and determines whether the applicant may be tested for admission. The Admissions Office then notifies parents with the decision and schedules an admissions screening. Following, parents will automatically be notified by email and the same notification will appear on the parent dashboard.

6. Previous Learning Support Assessment 
The home-school partnership must be based upon mutual honesty and respect. To this end, the school has the right to expect full submission/disclosure of any learning support assessment or identified need, or medical condition or disability, which could require specialist treatment, support or equipment, and any behavioral or disciplinary issues known to parents at the point of application, and thereafter. This information is essential to assist with any interview or other admissions screening processes.

7. On site Admissions screening and entry assessments procedures
From the school’s perspective, the most critical factors in the admissions process are
the parents’ conscious choice for Qatar Academy Msheireb and that we believe we are the right
school for that candidate. It is also our responsibility to ensure that applicants for admission to
QAM have a reasonable chance of success in our programs of learning. In addition, we expect
parents to understand and promote QAM’s mission and vision and to actively partner with the
us to support the education journey of their child.

To this end, each candidate’s application materials are carefully studied in order to assess suitability for admission. Parents are asked to submit/disclose any information that might help us make an informed admissions decision at the time of application.
At all levels, the school reserves the right to make direct contact with any previous school or educational establishment and to request a confidential report. This will ask for comment on academic progress to date, involvement in the broader life of the school, and general code of conduct. The Admissions Committee has the right to accept or refuse any applicant based on their assessment of the applicant’s suitability.

8. Admission Policy & Selection Criteria
** New or wait pool students will be admitted according to seat availability and QF school’s priority policy:

1. Siblings of current QAM students
2. Siblings of enrolled students who are children of QF employees
3. Children of QF employees
