Tuition Refund Policy

In the cases of both existing and new students, the registration/re-registration deposit will not be refunded unless there are extenuating circumstances. These circumstances include, but are not limited to, evidence of family/student relocation to another country/emirate or any other unforeseen circumstances. Such cases may be submitted to KHDA for review.

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 a period ranging between two weeks and one month, two months’ fees will be deducted.
  • If the student was enrolled in the school for more than a month, the full term’s fees will be deducted.

General Conditions

  • The above refund policy is applicable per term depending on the date of the withdrawal request.
  • 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 registrar counts as days in school.
  • Registration or Re-registration deposits are refundable in cases where a school’s quality rating has dropped and students wish to move to a school with a better rating, as stated in the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau report.
  • Book fees are refundable if the student decides to leave the school prior to the beginning of the academic year.
  • Any provisions in any other policies or approvals will be repealed in the event that they contradict this policy.
