Qatar Education Market Size: The education market in Qatar is at growing stage, registering a CAGR of approximately 4.6% during the period 2013 to 2018. The government of Qatar allocated a heavy annual budget for Qatar’s education sector in line with Qatar National Vision 2030, which focuses on enhancing course curriculum, improving learning outcomes, encouraging efficient teaching and refining the efficiency of education system. There has also been a shift towards private education which has resulted in emergence of new international institutions offering private education based on diverse international curricula and are particularly beneficial for the expat population, who were not allowed to obtain education in the public schools.
By Type of School (Public and Private): In Qatar K-12 education market, private schools have an edge with high teaching standards, small class sizes and modern facilities. Majority of these private schools are managed by and run for English-speaking western expatriates, and are co-educational and provide tuition to children from pre-school nursery groups through to university entrance examinations, preparing them for a variety of examinations. The cost of private education could be high compared to government schools, but in some instances, the school fee is paid by one’s (parent’s) employer and therefore it seems as a feasible option for families to consider.
By Level of Education (Pre-Primary, Primary, Preparatory and Secondary): Primary education has accounted for the largest market share in terms of total number of enrollments in the Qatar K-12 School market, 2018. Education in Qatar is compulsory and free for children between six and sixteen years of age. Primary school in Qatar is broken up into two stages, preparatory (six years) and elementary (three years). The six years preparatory schooling is compulsory. This is followed by secondary education (three years). Total number of enrollments in Preparatory and Secondary level education is increasing in the country as now more number of expat families in Qatar are looking forward to stay for longer duration as compared to earlier years, which resulted in families opting to educate their kids in the country itself and enrolling them for preparatory and secondary level schools in Qatar.
By Type of Universities (Government and Private Universities): Government universities in Qatar witnessed the maximum number of enrollments during 2018. Higher expenses to be incurred by the people for enrolling into private universities and benefit of national curriculum delivered in Arabic language in government universities led to limited number of admissions in private universities during the period 2013-2018. The total enrollments in private universities inclined at a crawling rate from 2013 to the academic session of 2018. It was witnessed that nearly twice as many female students enrolled in universities in Qatar as males, and nearly two-thirds of all graduates were women. While expat and Qatari females are still more likely to enroll in and graduate with university degrees, their male counterparts opted to work early in their careers. The government of Qatar is also designing a localization strategy to increase the number of Qatari nationals in all joint venture industries and government departments to assume important positions formerly occupied by expatriates and for this, they are focusing on imparting education to Qatari nationals, specifically to female students.
By Type of Tests (IELTS, GRE, SAT, TOEFL and GMAT): The Qatar Test Preparation market has grown at a CAGR of 7.2% during the review period 2013 to 2018. The growing number of enrollments is due to increased interest of students to study abroad for global exposure. Majority of the test preparation institutes focus on training the students for test such as IELTS, GMAT, GRE, TOEFL and SAT. The increasing number of Qatar students moving to the US for pursuing education has made the industry witness the highest number of enrollments to the institutes that offer IELTS preparation courses in 2018. A significant proportion of students also enrolled themselves for SAT during 2018. Merely few students enrolled to GMAT during 2018, as the fees charged by institutions for GMAT preparation higher compared to other test.
Qatar Vocational Training Market
The number of enrollments of Trainees increased during the period 2013-2018 due to the efforts of the government to increase the skill potential by imparting technical skill education. The government implemented schemes such as CNA-Q which increased the awareness of the courses provided by the vocational training institutes in the market. The rising demand for skilled and professional personnel in different sectors in the country has further boosted the Qatar Vocational Training market. The percentage of trainees enrolling to ministries and government sponsored training centers constituted a dominant share in the overall enrollments to various training institutes of the country in 2018 with high focus on Air Transport and Administrative training, followed by Air Transport and Vocational Safety and Security training.
Adoption of e-learning modules in Qatar has assisted the development of K-12 schools and Higher Educational Universities. E-learning not only helped the authorities in getting access to modern curriculum, but also assisted the students in learning about various other courses that were not offered in these colleges. It was also observed that most people in Qatar preferred e-learning content services in the form of videos. The ease of understanding a video content and the characteristics of being self explanatory to the learner made it the most favorable module in e-learning market. There also has been a growing trend of listening to the audio formats of various e-books and other learning materials, particularly among the students in universities and colleges.
Competitive Landscape in Qatar Education Market
The K-12 education market in Qatar is captured majorly by private schools due to a growing eminence of better education and the growing demand of the people to opt for international curriculum. The nature of the market is fragmented with various types of schools offering both international and national curricula which are available in various fees’ range. In Qatar Higher Education, with more number of private and government colleges setting up by Qataris Education Ministry, the industry witnessed a tough competition. The Qatar test preparatory industry is facing stiff competition due to the expansion of the already existing players and emergence of the new players in this sector. The continuous growing demand of the people in Qatar opting to study abroad for global exposure and international assignments has rapidly increased the revenues of this industry.
Qatar Education Future Outlook and Projections
The revenue generated by the Qatar education industry is anticipated to increase at a CAGR approximately 5% during the review period 2018 to 2023.
In the long run, the Qatar education market is expected to be driven by the improvement in the education system brought by the education ministry. The Qatari Ministry is emphasizing more towards female education by implanting education on the online portals due to which the number of enrollments is increasing exponentially. The government of Qatar has done strategic planning for the annual budget for Qatar’s education sector. Qatar National Vision 2030 will help the Qatar Education System to structure the curriculum by improving the learning outcomes of the students, by encouraging the teachers for increasing their teaching efficiency and thereby refining the whole education system.
