From elementary schools in UAE international children gain all advantages of educational process.

The prestigious boarding schools in UAE offer foreign students a range of study programs to choose from elementary to high school.

Please, don't hesitate to contact SMAPSE experts at any time as they are always ready to help you and answer all questions.

Elite UAE boarding schools for foreign students: the advantages of academic programs

List of main advantages of educational programs in UAE:

  • Favorable atmosphere and welcoming environment at the school. The main task of leading educational institutions is to create ideal conditions for international students from all over the world. Great attention is paid to the issue of a healthy psychological climate in the team. Within the walls of an educational institution, communication is built solely on respect and mutual understanding.

  • Rich sports program. Great emphasis is placed on fostering a love of sports. Students are provided with the necessary conditions for high-quality training: 

    • Different gyms;

    • Swimming pools;

    • Equipped rugby fields, football;

    • Tennis courts. 

    • Extracurricular activities provide an opportunity to explore areas such as equestrian / sailing under the guidance of professional trainers.

 

  • Rich Library funds. Libraries are a thriving environment for quality boarding education, offering not only books, but also a wealth of electronic materials that will be an excellent aid in research and independent work.

 

  • Food culture. In the top boarding schools in the UAE, a cult of healthy eating is developed: they take seriously the issue of offering meals, taking into account the individual characteristics of each ward. Students are given a choice of nutrition between the classic and vegetarian options, each of which is based on proper nutritional standards to maintain quality physical activity in children.

 

  • Taking seriously the health of schoolchildren. Student health is very important: leading schools in UAE have several medical offices that are open daily. Medical staff are responsible for assessing and managing chronic diseases, providing first aid and promoting the health and safety of the student community. Once a year, all children undergo a full prophylactic medical examination, and a doctor comes to the educational institution weekly to conduct preventive examinations. The children themselves participate in health education events organized by the Department of Health.

 

  • Parent forum. Elite boarding schools in the UAE create a parent forum through which the organization and the family of the ward are connected. Parents can find out all necessary information:

    • The child's progress;

    • The schedule of class / extracurricular activities;

    • Discuss social issues;

    • The activity of student life - this is very convenient if children and parents are at a distance from each other.

Boarding schools in UAE: rankings, features, tuition fees

For overseas teenagers, the best boarding schools in the UAE offer 2 options for accommodation:

  • Full board;

  • Weekly education.

In the first case, the child is at school around the clock and goes home only for the vacation period: this will be convenient for parents living or working in another country. The second option involves a standard stay and boarding school for 5 days a week with a return to the family for the weekend.

Popular educational institutions work according to various educational systems: arriving in the UAE, each student will be able to choose for himself exactly the option that will most suit his future goal. There are Swiss boarding houses, for example, Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai, British educational institutions, such as Repton School, etc. Lessons are taught in English, Arabic and an additional foreign language of the child's choice are compulsory in all schools, thanks to which graduates of this type of educational institution have a strong linguistic base and international communication skills.

Private schools in UAE offer separate accommodation on different campuses for female and male students. The children are under the round-the-clock supervision of the teaching staff, which is responsible for their life and health, and guarantees complete safety. 

The educational institution organize a rich leisure program: 

  • Exciting excursions;

  • Creative evenings;

  • Team events;

  • Sport competitions.

Entertainment is not limited to the classroom; teachers come up with an exciting and diverse pastime for their wards every day. The goal of educational institutions in the UAE is to provide children from all over the planet with a stimulating, happy environment in which students grow into self-confident, active and successful people.

Tuition fee depends on:

  • Type of the educational program;

  • Duration of study;

  • School rating. 

Estimated tuition fees in UAE:

  • The cost of middle classes starts from 63,000 aed per year;

  • The senior classes will cost the student about 80,000 aed per year;

  • The A-Level program - from 98,000 aed per year.
