Dubai pvt schools to not raise fees for second year in a row: KHDA


Daijiworld Media Network - Dubai

Dubai, Mar 17: The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai has announced that private schools in Dubai will not be raising tuition fees for the year 2021-2022.

Following this announcement, it will be the second year in a row that fees for Dubai schools will not be increased.

The announcement follows the release of the annual Education Cost Index (ECI) calculated by the Dubai Statistics Centre, which measures annual changes in the costs of running a school, including salaries, rent and utilities. The ECI for this year stands at -2.58 percent.

Mohammed Darwish, CEO of the Regulations and Permits Commission at KHDA said, “This announcement shows Dubai’s commitment to ensuring that the private school sector continues to deliver value to parents, investors and school operators. The ECI is a sophisticated measure of schools’ operating costs that govern how schools are able to increase their fees. For everyone in our education community, Dubai’s private school sector remains dynamic, resilient, and well placed to nurture the growth and wellbeing of students.”

The Education Cost Index and the Fee Framework were developed in 2012 in collaboration with Dubai Government entities, including Dubai Statistics Centre, Department of Economic Development and Dubai Chamber of Commerce, among others.
