Working in Qatar

You're probably interested in searching for a job in Qatar if you're looking at this section. I'll do my best to populate it with as much information and links as possible. Remember that if there is something you want to ask, please send an email! If you do use an agency, be sure to let them know you were recommended by iLoveQatar.net :)

We've compiled a list of important information to consider. Please see the "Moving to Qatar" section for additional information.

What should I ask my employer for?

It depends what your job is. If you think you are able to ask for some benefits, then ASK. You should try to get: accommodation (or at least a separate living expense), medical insurance, and educational fees.

What will my employer give me?

Again, it depends where you will be working, however accommodation expenses, educational expenses, and food allowances can be given in addition to your salary. Some businesses will give you free accommodation.

Can I ask for more?

My father always taught me that "a person who is deserving, will get what he deserves; a person who is greedy, gets nothing". I always remember that. So don't feel shy to ask your employer for more. Explain why you are asking for it. Keep an amount of what you are happy with in your mind first! THEN try to get a bit more.

Studying in Qatar

A lot of people used to travel to the US or to the UK in order to get a recommended degree. However now that Qatar has developed so much, a lot of people are traveling to Qatar! The level of education is quite high and it's setting the standard for higher level education in the Middle East. Qatar is developing it's Education City. What's unique about this is that it's essentially a 2,500Square foot campus that integrates various universities together. Universities include, Virginia Commonwealth, Weill Cornell Medical College, Texas A&M, Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown, Calgary, and the Qatar Academy. I've tried to compile a nice and simple list of the grounds and grouped them up in terms of the type of school it is. Special thanks should go to 'Mystica' for providing a major portion of this list. I've also tried to make a list of what ever University student should prepare for when coming.

On Campus Accommodation:

The lovely thing about the accommodation of universities in Qatar is that they're fully loaded! They usually come as a shared flat, dining room, living room, and kitchen, fully furnished with cable tv, ac's, internet access, telephone service, and the kitchens are loaded with dishwashers, microwaves, etc... The average price is around 1700, (or 230 GBP) a month).

What to bring:

When I studied in the UK, I learned that it was always important to have the following with me at all times.

An organized folder which should contain your important documents
A photocopy of your passport
A copy of your university acceptance letter
The address of where you will be staying at
The university's contact details

Trust me! It'll help you A LOT in the long run. If you ever get stuck, you'll be safe with this information!

If you're going to a foreign country, I always suggest that you live on campus for the first year. Get to know the country. Living on campus might sound boring, but it'll save you a lot of stress!
