Private schools in Dubai, UAE for international students, admission

The secondary education system in the country is represented by state and private institutions: if the state ones are intended for citizens of the country, then private ones accept foreign students. The vast majority of private schools are concentrated in Dubai: all levels of education are available here - from kindergarten to graduation classes. A big advantage is a wide range of standards and programs (the so-called curriculum):

  • UAE Ministry of Education Standard
  • Britain (GCSE, A-Level)
  • USA
  • Canada
  • International (IB, IGCSE)
  • French
  • Deutsch
  • Swiss
  • Russian
  • Iranian
  • Philippine
  • Pakistani
  • SABIS (international, first adopted in Lebanon)
  • IAT (technical focus)
  • Indian
  • Japanese

Such an extensive list is explained by a large number of foreigners and a variety of needs. The vast majority of schools provide programs in English. Some institutions practice separate education. A small number of institutions have their own residences for students, all the rest work in the day mode and the children live at home with their parents.

Private institutions provide students with exceptionally high-quality and prestigious education. Each standard is carried out taking into account the latest achievements, children study a large number of disciplines and subjects - depending on the standard, their quantity, schedule saturation and other nuances change. The total number of available items can reach 40-50, but the Arabic language is a must for all.

The educational system takes into account the individual wishes and preferences of children and schoolchildren, helps them to realize their talent. Prestigious and reputation-conscious institutions always accept only highly qualified specialists with extensive work experience. Parents and students shouldn't forget about the country's strict rules of conduct and gender relations, as their non-compliance can lead to undesirable consequences.

Private schools in Dubai: rankings and tuition fees

The country has a special state body that monitors the quality of education in private educational institutions - The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). KHDA regularly prepares reports and recommendations, presents a special ranking of private institutions with the assignment of the latter categories:

  • Outstanding
  • Good
  • Acceptable
  • Unsatisfactory (unsatisfactory).

The selection and distribution criteria are:

  • Student performance in core subjects
  • Marks
  • Learning and Management System Efficiency
  • School Performance
  • Compliance with UAE education standards and declared programs.

Prices and tuition fees depend on a number of factors:

  • Type curriculum. The most demanded and expensive - British, American, Canadian standards
  • KHDA ranking indicators. The higher the category, the higher the price
  • Age and grade. High school is more expensive than junior.

In general, the cost of a studying year can vary from several thousand to several tens of thousands dollars or more. When choosing an institution, you must definitely specify the full price and the amount of additional costs.
