Why join the Boarding and Private School Fair Dubai UAE?

The boarding and private school education market in the UAE is set for 3-5% enrollment growth per year in the next 10 years, according to the latest insights from the ministry of education. The United Arab Emirates’ private education market is highly competitive and the most mature market among all the Gulf countries. This growth is largely due to an increasing expatriate population, increasing enrollments, improved quality of education, and the increasing shift from public schools to private schools. Currently, the majority of  students in Dubai are enrolled in private schools and this trend is expected to grow.

‘More and more Dubai parents are looking for boarding and private schools abroad’  

To meet the needs of the Emirati students, there is a need for high-quality schools, with a rating of “good” or better. For expat families, there is a need for high-quality schools, with tuition fees ranging from low to middle, structured around the Indian, standard UK, International Baccalaureate (IB), and the US curricula.
