UK curriculum schools top choice for Dubai students

The American curriculum remains popular for Emirati students enrolled in private schools

Dubai, Nov 14, 2022: UK curriculum schools remain the top choice for Dubai’s private school students, with 36% of students opting for the curriculum. The data has been released by Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). 

The Indian curriculum is the second most popular (26 per cent), followed by the American curriculum (15 percent). The International Baccalaureate (7 per cent) and UK/IB hybrid curriculum (4 percent) round up the top five curriculum choices.

The American curriculum remains popular for Emirati students enrolled in private schools, with the majority (60 percent) attending a US curriculum school, followed by 24 per cent enrolled in UK curriculum schools.

Dubai continues to offer a wide diversity of school syllabuses, with private schools offering 17 different curricula. 

With four new private schools opening in Dubai this academic year, the total number of private schools has increased to 216 in 2022. 

KHDA revealed student enrolment growth of 4.5% from the end of the 2021-22 academic year in June, to the start of the current academic year in September. More than 326,000 students now attend Dubai’s private schools, representing a total of 187 nationalities.

Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of KHDA says, “These student enrolment figures represent healthy, sustainable growth, and show the trust that parents have in the ability of Dubai private schools to give their children an education grounded in wellbeing that can meet the demands of the future.

“While the range of curricula offered in Dubai speaks to the diversity of our community; all schools are committed to a quality-driven, future-focused approach that will enable students to thrive.”
