KHDA makes announcement.
Private schools in Dubai will not be eligible for a hike in tuition fees from the new academic year, according to Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
The announcement follows the release of the annual Education Cost Index (ECI), calculated by the Dubai Statistics Centre at -2.35 per cent. The ECI is based on statistical indicators that are in accordance with international standards.
Mohammed Darwish, chief of KHDA’s Regulations and Permits Commission, said, “The School Fees Framework prioritises the interests of students and parents and encourages investment in the education sector by allowing schools to develop long-term growth plans, as well as motivating existing schools to improve the quality of education they offer. The Education Cost Index provides complete transparency to both families and investors and balances expectations.”
