At QAST, we have developed a curriculum that nurtures our students’ passion for STEM


The curriculum has been designed to meet our vision and help students master the knowledge and skills they need to create solutions to the challenges of Qatar and the world. Alongside broad academic studies, our students are given projects based on Qatar’s Grand Challenges.

These projects enable students to learn through real-world problems and begin to have an impact from day one. Our curriculum helps to inspire and support students, giving them a platform to demonstrate their abilities and grow.

Our curricula offer a solid foundation of key subject areas, including:

  • Arabic
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Programming
  • Engineering
  • English
  • French
  • Islamic Studies
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Qatar History
  • Social Studies

All courses meet or exceed the requirements for schools in Qatar, the US, and UK to ensure our students are able to study anywhere in the world.

Through our unique engineering lessons, students learn not only theoretical engineering practices, but also practical manufacturing skills by hand and using the latest 3D printers, laser cutters, and manufacturing approaches. This builds on their academic knowledge and skills to create innovative students with the knowledge and skills needed to approach problems in a systematic and practical way.

We enhance our curriculum through participation in international trips, competitions, and clubs.

Our Grade 11 and 12 students will sit internationally recognized and accredited examinations/assessments through the US College Board (Advanced Placement, AP) or other assessments such as but not limited to UK A level exams, SAT, ACT, etc. Each course curriculum is tailored to the individual students university preferences and the program is designed to ensure they are able to access further study wherever they wish to go.

All students in Grades 11 and 12 will take part in internships and research, working with universities and industry on projects related to their studies enhancing their understanding and giving them stand-out experience. Students can select to follow their own interests with routes specifically designed to support interests in engineering, bio-medicine and computing.
