Student Cost of Living

Students can expect two different split costs, one is strictly rent which can be around 5,000- 7,000 QR. The next is everything else such as entertainment spending, groceries, technology (phone bill) which will be around 1500-2000 QR. 1500 QR is roughly translated to $411 USD, this is the lower side of the cost which will go towards necessities.

Rent is equal to a bit above $1,300 USD.

Cost of living can radically change from city to city, as well as, from university to university. Some students opt to stay with accommodation that is referred to by the university or by renting a bedroom.

Cost of Tuition

College tuition is broken down into 4 major sequences, undergraduate up to Ph.D./Doctorate studies. For example, an undergraduate’s tuition will cost about 1,000 QR. But for a master’s degree students’ cane expect to spend nearly 90,000 QR.

For a Ph.D. level degree, students can expect every bit of payment to come out to 120,000 QR. While an undergraduate degree tuition is quite affordable, it only makes sense that by the time a student reaches a doctorate level, the cost will be much greater.

This is because students will use more of the available resources and facilities to utilize work-study programs or laboratories.

Languages Spoken in Qatar

What is the main language spoken in Qatar? Arabic is the most common and established language in the country. Other languages that are spoken include English, French, Hindi, Urdu, Tagalog, Malaysian, Nepali, and Baluchi.

While English is known more as a 4th or 5th language in the region, students should learn Arabic if they wish to study in Qatar. Not only is Arabic important in Qatar, but there are many major studies that are part of the academic curriculum of all of the universities listed. 

Students should either sign up for Arabic language courses when they arrive in Qatar or start before. This is the best way to ensure that as a student, you will receive the best experience in Qatar.
