KHDA reports a 3.5 percent increase in enrolment in Dubai’s private schools


Since the start of the previous academic year, Dubai private schools have seen a 3.5 percent growth in enrolment, with approximately 10,000 new students. Dubai now has 215 private schools, 21 of which were opened in the last three years, according to new infographics issued by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

The infographics presented crucial information on each phase of Dubai’s private education sector and were created to provide investors, operators, educators, and parents with a better understanding of the industry as a whole.

Growth, strength, and opportunity have always been hallmarks of Dubai’s private school sector, according to Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, director-general of KHDA.

“The growth in student enrolment shows the confidence that parents have in the ability of Dubai schools to provide high-quality education in all circumstances,” he said.

“The sustained development of the emirate’s school sector reflects the energy, resilience, and dynamism that Dubai has been able to maintain. Consistent with the Expo 2020 theme of opportunity, our education sector continues to offer families and investors new possibilities.”
