Tuition fees in government schools for UAE residents
Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, "may God rest his soul in peace," crafted well-thought-out plans and policies to promote the educational sector when the Emirates were first established as a state. As a result, the wise leadership in the Emirates has devoted a great deal of attention to education ever since the state was founded. His Majesty's perspective was that the true source of prosperity is a person who is well-versed in both science and knowledge. In addition to being the basis for the revival of nations.
Registering the children of expatriates in public schools
The phases of the growth of education in the UAE each experienced a qualitative leap year after year, until it reached a distinguished stage in our time at the level of the area as a whole in general. Education is offered free of charge to residents beginning with kindergarten and continuing to the university level. Education is mandatory for children from 6 to 12 years old, and the state permits the enrolment of children of expatriates in government schools subject to certain restrictions.
The Emirates Foundation for School Education has given its approval to the controls and mechanisms for the payment of tuition fees in public schools for the next academic year 2023-2024 for students who reside in the country. The fees will not exceed 6,000 dirhams and can either be paid in a single payment or in installments at the beginning of each semester. The fees will be paid in one payment or in installments at the beginning of each semester.
According to a news release, the educational establishment noted that it expects the student's guardian to pay the tuition on the due date and that it reserves the right to issue a written warning to the guardian three times in the event that the guardian does not comply with this expectation.
She pointed out that in the case that continuing non-payment occurs, the student's end-of-year grades are delayed, and transfer certificates to other institutions are not granted until the settlement of costs is achieved. In addition, the kid is not allowed to leave the school until the fees are paid in full.
It has been certified by the Emirates Foundation for School Education that the tuition payments that have already been paid are non-refundable.
Categories of admission to public schools
Students who are in possession of a valid resident visa for the United Arab Emirates and want to enroll in one of the top public schools in Dubai or any of the other Emirates have had this opportunity since the year 2001. However, there are some costs and restrictions that must be met. The Ministry of Education only permitted male and female residents who had achieved a certain level of achievement to register their children for kindergarten. However, registration was open for students in grades one through twelve for a number of other categories. These categories included the following:
Those who are citizens and the sons of citizens who are citizens and who have a family book.
Students who are citizens or residents of the Emirates
Residents of the nations that make up the GCC
An orphan who is being supported by a citizen (owing to the fact that his father has passed away), provided that the sponsor and the breadwinner are the same person.
Students are the offspring of those who wield decrees that have been issued by His Majesty, the President of the State, or his deputy.
Those individuals who are in possession of diplomatic cards that were issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the United Arab Emirates.
According to the rules and laws handed down by the state, children of expatriates are not allowed to vote.
