Private schools in Dubai will not increase tuition fee for 2022-23 academic year

The Education Cost Index for this year stands at -1.01 per cent

Private schools across Dubai will not be eligible for any fee increase for the 2022-23 academic year, the emirate’s education regulator Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has said.

The directive follows the release of the latest Education Cost Index (ECI), which measures annual changes in the costs of running a school, including salaries, rent and utilities.

The ECI, calculated by Dubai Statistics Centre, has been set at -1.01 per cent this year.

Meanwhile, enrollment at Dubai’s private schools increased by 5.8 per cent since February 2021. The emirate has witnessed the opening of around 21 new schools over the past three years, scaling the total number to 215.

Mohammed Darwish, CEO of the Regulations and Permits Commission at 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, a statement said.
