Embracing the diversity of people living in the UAE, Abu Dhabi offers a high standard of education with a range of international curricula such as American, British, Japanese, Indian, German, and Italian. There are endless options for children to undertake their education from reputed nurseries and private schools to international schools and universities.
Non-UAE nationals children are allowed to attend public schools in the UAE, but unlike locals, non-uae nationals are charged school fees. This, along with the fact that teaching in public schools is in Arabic, leads most non-UAE nationals parents to consider international schools. The school year runs from September to July, with the year broken into three terms. The school week is from Monday to Friday and hours vary depending on the school.
