The College

Dubai College was established forty two years ago and has a national and international reputation as a world class learning organisation. We are an independent, coeducational, not-for-profit, selective 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.

Availability of places

The main entry point is Year 7 and for entry in September 2022 there will be 160 places available. Occasional vacancies may arise for entry to Years 8, 9 and 10; these tend to be very limited. We anticipate that there will be around 15-20 places available to join Year 12 in September 2022.

Due to the nature of the GCSE and A Level courses, we regret that we are not able to accept applications to join us in Years 11 and 13.

Applications for the academic year September 2020-2021

Applications to join the school during the current academic year 2020-21 are now closed for all year groups. 

Applications for the academic year September 2021-2022

Applications to join the school in September 2021 are now closed for all year groups.  Occasional vacancies may arise for entry to Years 8 & 9 in term 2 (Jan 2022) and term 3 (April 2022), however, tend to be very limited.

Online applications for September 2022 will open in mid September 2021.
