A new report by online education guide Edarabia has shown that average school fees in Dubai can range from Dhs2,479 to Dhs120,145 depending on the age of students (that’s USD675 to USD32,711 per annum), and is not including additional fees for admission, transportation, school uniforms and books.
Just as a general (non-scientific) comparison, private senior school fees in the UK can range from Dhs45,000 to Dhs90,000 according to BestSchools.co.uk (but then there are far more English-language public school options in the UK considering it’s an English speaking country, just as there are far more Arabic-language public schools here).
