GIIS

Dubai incorporates universities from 12 distinct countries which have 26 international branch campuses across the UK, Australia, India, etc. Almost 30,000 students attend these universities where the majority of students prefer studying business, engineering, or media & design. 

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority(KHDA) was founded in 2006 and was mainly developed for education and human resource sectors in Dubai, and licensed educational institutes. KHDA thrives in creating a high quality education sector across all private schools in Dubai.

The education system in Dubai comprises both public and private schools, although 90% of the education is contributed by private schools (some of which offer American, British, French and other curricula, such as the French Baccalaureate). For all Emiratis, Primary and Secondary education is free of cost yet it is mandatory for boys and girls of all standards. The medium of instruction in public schools for all subjects is Arabic, although English is used as the second language. 

Education is an important requisite for all children from the age of five to fifteen. Tuition fees at the private schools range from AED 1,725 to AED 107,200 per year. Therefore, Dubai's annual revenue from private schooling fees is AED 5.35bn. About 39% of students pay less than AED 10,000 in tuition per year.

In January 2020, according to the emirate's education regulator, 25,830 of Dubai's 295,148 students  i.e. 8.75% attended schools deemed to be outstanding.

Dubai has 210 private schools including 34 Indian curriculum schools who offer programmes to more than 279,000 students across 15 distinct types of curricula. Their main aim is to guarantee that all students in Dubai have access to high quality education.

Global Indian International School is an exceptional Indian School in Dubai. GIIS tries its best to provide a top-notch learning experience to your child.
