Dubai Private Schools Will Not Increase Fees in 2022-23

The release of the latest Education Cost Index (ECI) showed that Dubai’s private schools will not be eligible for any fee increase for the 2022-23 academic year.

Education Cost Index (ECI) has been set at -1.01% this year and is calculated by the Dubai Statistics Centre.

Mohammed Darwish, CEO of the Regulations and Permits Commission at Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), said: “Dubai’s private schools continue to demonstrate strong growth and resilience, driven by the trust and confidence of families. Our robust fee framework ensures complete transparency and balances the expectations of families and schools.”

The Education Cost Index and the Fee Framework were developed in collaboration with Dubai Government entities, including Dubai Statistics Centre, Department of Economic Development, and Dubai Chamber of Commerce, among others.

Enrolment at Dubai’s private schools increased by 5.8% since February 2021.

Dubai has witnessed the opening of around 21 new private schools over the past three years, taking the total to 215.
