Fees and Tuition
In accordance with the fee structure established by GEMS Education, under the guidance of KHDA’s School Fees Framework (which can be viewed by clicking HERE), all fees due are payable prior to a student’s first day of attendance. Fees may be paid by the following methods:
Once an online enquiry is submitted, a registration fee of AED 500 is required along with the documentation that completes the Admissions File. This registration fee is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-deductible from tuition irrespective of the admissions decision outcome.
Once an acceptance letter is sent, an admission fee of AED 7500 is required within seven days of the date on the offer letter to secure the seat. This fee is non-refundable and is adjustable against the first semester’s tuition fees.
Once the signed offer letter is returned and the admission fee is paid, the full first semester’s tuition is due prior to the student starting school. Please note that GWA-Dubai tuition fees are exclusive of uniforms, food services, transport and any English language or special needs learning support that the student may require.

NBAD/GEMS Co-Branded Credit Card Tuition Discount
While registration and admission fees are non-refundable, tuition fee refunds follow the Ministry of Education Bilos for Private Education. If a student withdraws or leaves school for any reason, refunds will be returned to the original payee as indicated below:
To secure a seat for the following academic year, parents must pay a re-enrolment fee of AED 2500 by April 15 of each year. This fee is non-refundable and is adjusted against the first semester fees for the following school year. Please note that students who are unable to be registered with the Ministry of Education/KHDA due to incomplete documentation, or students with any outstanding fees, may not be eligible to re-enroll for the following academic year.
Non-Payment of Fees
Non-payment of school fees may result in the withholding of school reports, references and/or examination results, as well as temporary or permanent exclusion from school.
