Payment Policies

The tuition fees are due prior to the start of the academic year and payable in advance of attendance, at the start of each month. Tuition fees will be invoiced from the time of admission to ensure that payments can be processed before the start of the month. If your circumstances change, it is essential that you contact us in advance of the deadline so that we can guide you on available options. Please note, all tuition fees are in accordance with the fee structure established by GEMS Education under the guidance of KHDA established School Fee Framework.

Payment of Fees

  1. Fees will not be collected in July and August.
  2. The Application Fee is payable at the time of the online registration, and is charged to process the application of new students. Once the child receives a formal offer from the school, the registration deposit is charged to enrol the child and secure the seat.
  3. If new students enrol at a school during the course of the academic year, the school can charge tuition fees starting from the beginning of the month of enrolment. 

Method of payment

Cash, cheque and credit card are accepted and payment can be made in person at the school accounts office or through the online parent portal. In addition to this, payments of fees and tuition can also be paid by wire transfer directly to the school bank account. (Provided upon request)

Non-payment of Fees

Students may not be permitted to appear for the school examination if their fees are not paid. Failure to pay school fees may result in a loss of the student’s place in the school, withholding of their school reports, references, and/or examination results, as well as, temporary or permanent expulsion or exclusion from school.


  1. In the case of both existing and new students, the registration and re-registration deposit will not be refunded unless there are extenuating circumstances. These circumstances include, but are not limited to relocation to another country/Emirate or any other unforeseen circumstances. 
  2. In the case of refund, the school fees will be calculated as follows:
    • Tuition fees paid prior to the beginning of the academic year are refundable and only the registration / re-registration fees will be deducted. 
    • If the student was enrolled in the school for two weeks or less, a month’s fees will be deducted.
    • If the student was enrolled in the school for more than a month, the full terms fees will be deducted. 
  3. The refund will be calculated from the start of the term and the date of the official request by the parent stating the intent of withdrawal and not from the date when the student was absent. Being on the school register counts as days in school.
  4. If paid with credit card or online, monies will be refunded back to the credit card. Cash payments will be refunded via cheque.  


Please note, students who are unable to be registered with the ministry due to missing required documentation, or students with an outstanding fee balance, will not be able to be re-enrol for the next academic year.

KHDA School Fees Framework

The objective behind the development of a framework to regulate school fees is to protect the students and their parents as beneficiaries of educational services, as well as to provide a favourable environment for investors in the education sector and encourage them to improve the quality of education in the Emirate of Dubai. This is achieved by creating a comprehensive mechanism for the implementation of tuition fees which takes account of the educational and economic aspects and protects the interests of all stakeholders.

The framework has been developed in line with the strategic goals of KHDA and as a result of community engagement through parent surveys and investor feedback on this issue. The framework motivates schools to improve the quality of education, whilst at the same time protecting the interests of both parents and investors.
