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 2020 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 2020.

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 entry in January 2020 and April 2020

Occasionally, vacancies may arise for entry to Years 7, 8 and 9 in Terms 2 and 3.  Please note that applications to join the school in Term 2 (January 2020) are currently closed.

Students are eligible to apply for entry to Years 7, 8 and 9 in Term 3 only if they would be joining directly from a school outside Dubai. 

Please contact the Registrar if you require further advice.

Please note that we are not able to consider applications to join Years 10 or 12 in Terms 2 or 3.
