Living in Qatar

Qatar is a country in the Middle East with a population of 1.5 million people, partly comprised of a large expatriate community. Although it is considered a small or mid-sized Middle Eastern city, Qatar boasts many amenities and attractions, including museums, malls, and water parks. Because Qatar is surrounded by water, there are plenty of opportunities for water sports and activities.

The temperature ranges from warm to hot throughout the year, ranging from 16º C to 38º C. Most schools begin their day early – 6:30 AM or 7 AM start times are not uncommon in Qatar, and an earlier day can help with battling the afternoon heat.

Teaching in Qatar gives teachers insight into life in the Middle East, allows teachers to experience traditional Qatari hospitality, and offers highly competitive salaries. Teachers in Qatar will enjoy an accommodating blend of old-world traditions and modern day amenities – an experience like no other!
