Qatar: Fees Can Only be Increased with Ministry Approval

Gulf Times, 11 August 2021: Qatar’s Education and Higher Education Ministry has announced private school fees can only be increased with their approval.

Their Private Schools Licensing Department is responsible for monitoring tuition and other fees charged by private schools and kindergartens in the country.

Private schools and kindergartens who increase fees without Ministry approval will commit a violation.

They should submit an application with all the necessary justifications and reasons for the increase with the relevant documents.

Any increase in fees should correspond to improvements in the educational or other related services offered to students. They should also consider the need for investors to make reasonable profit to help them improve their investment in education and continue it.

The Ministry added there are various standards and conditions which apply and should be followed by schools to get approval for any fee increases.
