Welcome to the sixth form admissions area of DBS Wakra. Our nurturing sixth form at Wakra opened to students in September 2022. Our team of outstanding subject specialist teachers have world class experience in teaching from the UK and the international sector. As part of the DBS cluster of schools, we work closely with colleagues across the group, sharing excellence and ensuring we are delivering truly world class education. We currently offer a demanding portfolio of International AS levels and have plans to expand further in September 2023. International AS qualifications are very rigorous and have an excellent reputation globally, both with regards to University entry and work opportunities alike.

All Sixth Form students are offered university and career guidance during their course. They receive information on how to apply to a variety of international universities, and will have the opportunity to meet university representatives both in school and at different fairs around Doha.


Many universities require AS students to complete a foundation year of study before beginning an undergraduate degree, and since admission deadlines fall between January and March, a lot of time is spent in Term 1 preparing students for the application process.
