Nord Anglia International School

At Nord Anglia Education, our students are empowered to become changemakers who help make the world a better place.

Schools for students with special educational needs can be found throughout the UAE, as the government remains committed to an inclusive education platform. Some schools incorporate special needs learning alongside mainstream classrooms, while some schools work only with special needs students.

By joining a Nord Anglia school, your child will have their horizons broadened so they are globally minded, and they’ll be actively involved in learning about sustainability and global issues. We encourage all our students to help tackle issues in their own communities, and we give them the tools to do so successfully.

Your child will be encouraged to take part in outreach activities, volunteer projects, and fundraising through our Share A Dream programme.

Dubai College

Dubai College is a selective entry British school in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Established in 1978, the school caters for students in Years 7 to 13, and is situated in the Al Sufouh area of Dubai. Students prepare for the British GCSE and A-Level examinations.

For parents around the world, their children’s education is an important concern. And for expat parents in the UAE, finding the right school that aligns with curriculum values, classroom culture and budget can be a challenge. This guide sheds light on the education system in the United Arab Emirates.

Education in the UAE is regulated by a number of different bodies. At the federal level, the Ministry of Education (MOE) sets admission standards, graduation requirements and curricula; in each emirate, and especially in the larger emirates, there are individual regulatory bodies such as the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) or Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

Because of this, there can be significant differences in education between different emirates. Private schools in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are under the supervision of ADEK and KHDA, but not the Ministry of Education. In fact, private schools across the country follow the guidelines set by the MOE but are not under direct government supervision.
Under the state system, students who successfully pass their high school final exams receive a high school leaving certificate from the Ministry of Education. Graduation requirements at private schools vary. Teaching philosophy, available subjects and exam schedules are important elements that parents can discuss with school officials when looking for a school.
