Hayat Universal School (HUBS) Qatar is a British Columbia Certified Offshore School (fully accredited by the BC Ministry of Education). This is the link to the BC Certified Offshore Schools:

The Ministry thoroughly inspects our school every year. For example, inspectors look into BC program year plans, instructional time, instructional methods, admission system, integrity of promotion and registration process, support services, school policies, safety and supervision plans, student and staff records, teacher and principal certification and hiring practices, learning resources, facilities and school licensing.
Although the school offers bilingual/bi-cultural education with an Arabic Program that implements the Qatar National Curriculum, the main program is the BC program with the majority of the instructional time dedicated for this program (80% in K and 74% starting Grade 1)
The school started in 2009-2010 with KG1 - Grade 3 and has been adding a grade every year with the movement of students to higher grades. It will be offering up to Grade 7 in 2013-2014. The purpose of this approach is to make the lower grades the main point of entry to the school and to keep transfers in the higher primary and intermediate grades to the minimum.
To graduate from our school, students will have to successfully complete the requirements of the British Columbia graduation program in English. Graduates receive the British Columbia Certificate of Graduation (Dogwood Diploma).
From 190 students in its first year (2009-2010), the school has grown to 820 students in 2012-2013, with 610 enrolled in the BC Program, which starts at KG2. The remaining students are registered in our Early Childhood Program (KG1 Beginner and KG1). The school's reputation and its remarkable success are attributed to its bilingual program, the world-class BC program it implements and the quality and dedication of the school team of teachers and administrators who make these programs a success. The students are predominantly Qataris and ESL learners. The school Early Childhood Grades (KG1 Beginner and KG1) prepare students for the BC Program. English is the main language of instruction in these grades. Their curriculum dovetails with the BC curriculum.
HUBS Qatar is the culmination of the vision and experience of a renowned psychologist and educator in the Middle East. Parents, teachers and BC inspectors sense the community that prevails in the school. This year (2012-2013), the school team of educators include 35 classroom teachers (28 Canadians, 7 of German, British, American, South Korean, Indian, and Filipino nationalities) and 15 Arab teachers who deliver the Arabic Program. The school is supported by a team of teaching assistants. Each KG1 - Grade 2 class is assigned a teaching assistant. The higher elementary grades share four teaching assistants.
