School fee policy

All payments are non-refundable.

All school fees are due and payable to the start of each academic term.

In case of unpaid school fees, the school has been instructed by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) not to give out any official documentation, including school report cards. Unpaid school fees prevent the student transferring and being accepted to any other school.

Qatar-Finland International School belongs to the voucher system and follows the MOEHE rules and regulations in this process.

Review of the application

The school’s admissions team reviews the application and documents after they are submitted completely. Based on the information the team recommends the assessment for the applied grade level or the grade level the team sees more appropriate for the child.


Our admissions coordinator will contact you in order to arrange the assessment time, since we wish to meet the child personally in a small group test.

Assessment fee is QAR 500 paid by cash only, and it’s non-refundable no matter whether the child is accepted or not. Please come to school 10-15 minutes before the booked time to complete the office protocol before the test begins with your child. Please bring a recent passport size picture of your child when you come to assessment.

Assessment is based on holistic evaluation of the child’s learning and his/her performance during the test. In the assessment process the school values equally the academic, social and emotional, behavior and motoric skills. Each of these areas can be a reason for a refusal of an applicant.

We are following the Finnish curriculum standards when assessing the child and trying to find the right grade level. Despite of the child’s previous grade level, the school holds the right to decide a proper grade level in Q.F.I. School after the assessment.

We do not show the test results for the family, but instead we will give short feedback of child’s performance during the test right after the assessment is done.


The school admission board will decide the acceptance of each applicant. We will inform you by email whether we are able admit your child to the Q.F.I. School. If we are able to offer a place, you need to confirm the offer by:

  • Signing and returning the Acceptance Letter you will receive
  • Paying the initial Registration Fee of QAR 2500 and the Seat Reservation Fee of QAR 2500 (the seat reservation fee will be deducted from Term 1 tuition fee) before the deadline stated in the email
  • Signing and returning the five school policies (links on the left)

Depending on the acceptance date, the first term’s tuition fee may also be due and in that case seat reservation fee does not imply.
