Dubai College was established in 1978 and has a national and international reputation as a world class learning organisation. We are an independent, coeducational, not-for-profit, selective secondary school following an adapted English National Curriculum and our vision is to be “leading British education overseas”, underpinned by four pillars of sporting, creative, philanthropic and academic endeavour.

We invite you to explore the links on this page for more information on the admissions process for each year group.

Year 7 is the main entry point to Dubai College and we strongly recommend that families already in Dubai apply for Year 7 rather than postponing applying until a later year group (for example to coincide with a younger sibling's application to Year 7).

We regret that we are unable to consider applications to join Years 11 and 13 due to the two year GCSE and A level course structure.
