At SEK International School Qatar we are proud to have a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) programme starting from Grade 4 till Grade 12. Integrating technology into everyday school life is the foundation of SEK-Qatar as a Microsoft Showcase School and in supporting the delivery of 21st century learning.

From the first day of school, students are expected to work with their own laptop to facilitate an outstanding learning experience.

 

We have prepared a Sway presentation where you will find video tutorials which will help you setup your child/ren’s laptop. Instructions on how to install school apps can also be found here: https://bit.ly/3wB9b0d This Sway will be regularly updated so please keep an eye out for it.

 

After years of experience, we have learned that it can be challenging to purchase the appropriate device and to receive high quality service.

In order to support our families, we have sourced a reliable, local partner, FNAC Qatar, who we highly recommend for the purchase of our students’ devices. On top of that, we have negotiated special terms for all SEK-Qatar students.

 

Highlights of benefits that are included in the agreement:

  • Support – 12×7 dedicated customer care hotline and direct support in any of the FNAC shop in Qatar. They will also be able to collect a defective device from home or school.
  • Extended warranty – The standard 1 year warranty, will be extended to full 3 years.
  • Accidental Damage Protection – An insurance will be added to cover any accident, like broken screen or spilled liquid, on the device while in Qatar.

 

Grade 4 to 12

FNAC will be able to provide the following devices:
