In some parts of the world education is free. In Dubai education for expats' children is mainly private and pricey. Our Dubai Sherpas will guide you.

Updated 21-January-2015  

Ah ha, education, a subject which is close to your hearts if you have a little bundle of joy sitting on your lap.

The Dubai Sherpas have been out in force meeting and greeting some of their advisors, teachers and professionals. They’re actively involved in the education scene in Dubai. Ask the experts a question about education in Dubai and it’s more than likely they’ll be able to answer it ‘off the top of his/her head’. Their articles will be published soon so keep checking back to this page.

In the meantime you can check KHDA (Knowledge & Human Development Authority) for information about curricula and fees for schools.  They also have reports where school inspectors rate the schools.  Please note that most schools have a waiting list but we’ll do your homework for you.

We’d  love to hear your stories – how you found your school, what you think of the fees, are the teachers good etc etc.  Any point of view is welcome here.

The advice provided in our columns does not constitute legal advice and is provided for information only. Readers are encouraged to seek appropriate independent legal advice.
