KHDA Approved Fees (AED)
Fees for Academic Year 2020/21 (AED)
Tuition Fees include all educational resources including a personal learning device. Tuition Fees do not include uniform, food services, transport, or extra-curricular activities outside school hours.
Fees are in accordance with the fee structure established by Dwight School Dubai under the guidance of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority’s (KHDA) established School Fees Framework (2012).
Applicable fee increases will be subject to KHDA approval and will be applied to the Founding Fee discounted rates as well as the KHDA approved fees. In line with KHDA regulations, new schools in Dubai cannot increase their fees until the beginning of the 4th year of operation.
A one-time non-refundable/non-transferable application fee of AED 525 inclusive of VAT is payable at the time of application.
A registration fee equivalent to 10% of the students annual tuition fee is payable within 14 days of the date on the offer letter to secure a seat. This fee is not refundable and is adjustable against the first term’s tuition fees. The first term tuition is due prior to the student’s first day of school.
The school may charge up to 5% of the student's annual tuition fees as a re-registration deposit to confirm the return of existing students in the new academic year. This deposit will be deducted from the total tuition fee for the academic year in which the admission is being sought. Re-registration for continuing students will not be accepted unless all outstanding fees due have been paid in full.
Sibling discounts are applicable on the Founder Fee for 2019 / 2020 academic year as below:
- 5% for child no. 2 and 3 each
- 10% for child no. 4
- 15% for child no. 5
Tuition Fee Refund
In accordance with the KHDA Framework, both existing and new students’ deposits will not be refunded if the student decides not to return to Dwight School Dubai or accept the place offered for the next academic year due to selection of another school in Dubai. However, a school may choose to refund the deposit under special circumstances.
If you are relocating outside of Dubai, under the KHDA Framework the deposit paid would be refunded. You will be required to provide evidence of the move and this will need to be submitted to the Dwight School’s Finance Office when requesting a refund.
In the case of refund and recovery, the school fees will be calculated as follows as per the Ministry of Education Bylaws:
If the student attends school for two weeks or less, a month’s school fees will be charged.
If the student attends school for more than two weeks and less than one month, two months’ school fees will be charged.
If the student attends school for more than a month, three months’ school fees will be charged.
In case the term is greater than 3 months then the above cycle will restart at the end of every 3 months.
The value of the fee per month is calculated by dividing the total tuition fees by 10.
Term One Fees
First term fees are due prior to the 1st day of school. Payments will be accepted via cash, credit card, wire transfer or cheque payable to Dwight School Dubai.
Non-Payment of Fees
Failure to pay tuition fees may result in:
- withholding of the student’s school reports, references, and/or exam results
- temporary or permanent expulsion or exclusion from school
