 Careers

In their final years at DES our students are given a comprehensive programme of advice on higher education allowing them to choose the direction that best reflects their abilities and aspirations. The school runs a series of talks and PSHE workshops which cover all aspects of the admissions process, from choosing the right course thorough to preparing personal statements and interview techniques. 

In addition we arrange talks from university admissions tutors from around the world. Those going on to American universities sit the SATs and we arrange a course of SAT tuition too. The school is now an IELTS centre and all students in Year 12 are offered IELTS preparation, this is an important course for non-native English speakers as universities want proof of a students proficiency in English.

DES has also built links in the commercial and industrial world, allowing students to take part in a number of Job Shadow Days and Work Placements. Companies have included the Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar Broadcasting Service, the Museum of Islamic Art, Citi group and Madina Group amongst others.
