A new WhichSchoolAdvisor.com study has found that some Dubai parents will spend as much as 1.3 million AED to educate their child from foundation years all the way into their final year of high school. If that sounds worrying, those coming to the UAE post 2020 Expo can expect to be paying closer to two million dirhams in fees.
The detailed study looked at education from parents with children starting this academic year (2016/17) at an Outstanding IB school can expect to pay AED 1,338, 562 over the course of their child’s education. Costs are also compared across curricula available in Dubai, and take in all the extra costs associated with education.
James Mullan of WhichSchoolAdvisor gave Drive Live an exclusive sneak preview of all the stats and you can find their full article here.
