Home Search in Morocco
Finding accommodation in Morocco can be challenging if you are new to the country. However, Moroccan apartments and villas can be wonderful places to live. Homes are generally built to stay cool in hot summer months, with tile floors and spacious rooms. Almost all homes have some kind of balcony or outdoor space, which can be a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy sunny afternoons.
Signing a lease in Morocco
Once you find an apartment, it is necessary to sign the lease with your landlord and get it notarized. Leases generally last for one year at a time, and payment is sent monthly. Electricity and hot water costs are paid by lessees and can be paid monthly online or in person at the office of the utility company. Landlords are not required to include hot water tanks, stoves, or refrigerators in unfurnished apartments, so it is wise to compare apartments from several landlords to insure that you are getting a fair deal. Buildings with a concierge require tenants to pay a monthly fee to help cover the costs of cleaning the building’s common areas.
Cities in Morocco
Housing prices in Morocco vary greatly by area and by property. Apartments and villas in big cities like Casablanca, Rabat, and Marrakesh can be very expensive, particularly in central neighbourhoods. Casablanca is known as the most expensive city, as it is the economic capital, and is also the city with the most jobs opportunities. Generally, it is less expensive to live further from a city, but there are some newer housing developments outside of cities that can be quite expensive. Smaller cities tend to have much lower housing prices and can be very cheap in comparison to homes in Europe or the United States.
Schooling in Morcooo
The education system in Morocco is free and compulsory from the ages of 7 (open to children as young as 4 years old) to 13 years old. There is a basis in the French system and students must pass Certificate d’études primaires to be eligible for admission in lower secondary schools.
There are 3 basic tracks:
* Modern Track – Continuation of the French system
* Original Track – Koranic teachings
* Technical Track – Education for the workforce
There are issues with the education system as many children do not continue their full educatio. Only about 50 percent of Moroccans are literate with a higher percentage among males than females.
International schools can be the perfect solution for an expat student (multinational corporation executives, children of diplomats, NGO staff) in Morocco. International schools provide similar standards of schooling around the globe, providing for an easy transition between schools whether they are in France or Vietnam. There is usually local population, as well as an international student body. Schools may follow a curriculum model from the US, UK, France, etc. Primary instruction may be any language (and multiple languages are usually taught), but it is usually in English. Schools also provide internationally accepted accreditation such as the international baccalaureate
