UAE: Schools extend freeze on fees for new academic year


Abu Dhabi’s Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek) confirmed that schools in the capital will not be allowed to increase fees for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Pandemic-triggered uncertainties have also led other school groups to follow similar lines, easing any financial challenges that parents may have faced due to the prevailing situation.

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) affirmed that school fee increases will be based on the Education Cost Index (ECI), which is likely to be announced soon.

However, some private schools are increasing tuition fees retrospectively, as per the 2019 ECI.
