A new resource for parents in Dubai will provide them with comprehensive and reliable information regarding their children’s school expenses. The School Fees Fact Sheet is a one-page reference that lists all of the fees that a school may charge during the school year.
It will include information on additional verifiable expenses that parents may pay during the academic year, such as transportation, extracurricular activities, school trips, and books, to name a few. Every private school in Dubai will have a School Fees Fact Sheet available to parents.
The fact sheets will be deployed in the first phase by schools beginning their academic year in April of this year, encompassing parents of over 81,000 students across 35 schools in Dubai.
The School Fees Fact Sheet is a one-page reference that includes all fees that a school may charge during an academic year.
Before the end of the current academic year, schools that begin their academic year in September 2022 will have access to the programme. The fact sheet will also include information on discounts and scholarships offered by each school.
Parents can access each school’s School Fees Fact Sheet through the KHDA directory. It is also available online with the Parent/School Contract. In addition, each school will post its own fact sheet on its website.
The School Fees Fact Sheet is valid for one academic year and can be verified by scanning the QR code on the document.

The Director-General of KHDA, Dr Abdulla Al Karam, said: “Dubai is committed to supporting an environment that enables parents, students, and schools to engage with each other and make choices based on clear information. Through the School Fees Fact Sheet, parents can understand a school’s complete fee structure at a glance. This will help them make better decisions about their children’s schooling.
“When there’s transparency on fees, both parents and schools can better focus on children’s growth. We’re grateful to private schools in Dubai for their support in making the fact sheets accessible to their parent communities.”
