Education in Dubai encompasses the many levels of primary, secondary and collegiate education catering to various ethnic and linguistic groups. The school system in Dubai does not differ from education in the United Arab Emirates. There are many public and private schools serving Emiratis and expatriates.
The Ministry of Education of the United Arab Emirates is responsible for accreditation of schools. The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) was established in 2006 to develop education and human resource sectors in Dubai, and license educational institutes.
Primary and secondary education is free of cost for all Emiratis and compulsory for boys and girls from age 5 until 15. Upon graduating from secondary school, students are awarded with either a Secondary School Leaving Certificate or Technical Secondary Diploma.
The medium of instruction in public schools is Arabic with emphasis on English as a second language. There are no co-educational primary or secondary public schools
Most schools offer both primary and secondary instruction so students do not need to transfer to a separate school location upon graduating from primary school.
American curriculum runs from Kindergarten to Grade 8. British curriculum runs from Year 1 to Year 9.
Most of the secondary schools require students to take standardized tests such as Advanced Placement, SAT, IB Diploma, IGCSE, GCE Advanced level or CBSE.
