  • 9. Education Sector in UAE to 2019 — Market Size and Intelligence Report ©Indalytics Advisors Pvt. Ltd l www.indalytics.com l 8 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UAE has one of the highest literacy rates (90%) among the developing countries — with an enrollment ratio of approximately 107% for primary education, and approximately 67% for higher education. The country caters to approximately 33% of its population across various levels of education, and spends approximately 21% of its total government expenditure on education. More than half of the UAE’s education sector is dominated by the general school education, followed by higher education and preschool education. The sector has benefitted from high government spending of approximately one–fifth of the total federal expenditure on education, and improvement in quality of education at public schools. However many students are now opting for private schools — which teach in English, and as per international curricula. Demand for private education is coming from both locals, as well as expatriates staying in UAE. The country is witnessing an increase in number of private players, especially in higher education, which are catering to growing number of youth. These players are collaborating among themselves, raising financing, and investing in various levels across the sector. UAE is also witnessing increased use of technology, as the government is advocating digital education through its programs.

  • 13. Education Sector in UAE to 2019 — Market Size and Intelligence Report ©Indalytics Advisors Pvt. Ltd l www.indalytics.com l 12 REPORT SAMPLE EDUCATION SYSTEM IN UAE Education is one of the major sectors in UAE, which attracts 21% of the government’s budget. While the school education is governed by the Ministry of Education, Postsecondary or higher education comes under the purview of Ministry of Higher Education. The government provides free education in public schools and higher education institutions to UAE nationals or children of Emirati mothers. Expatriate students in UAE can also attend the public schools, but for a fee. The medium of instruction in public schools is Arabic, with English being offered as a second language. School education sector in UAE is divided into four stages, spanning across 14 years of education. The first stage consists of preschool or kindergarten education that starts at three years of age, and lasts two years. Kindergarten education is free and voluntary. The core K–12 schooling starts after kindergarten, and is spread across 12 grades, divided into three cycles. Cycle 1, or the elementary stage, spans across grade 1 to 5, and is aimed at providing basic elementary education to children.
  • 14. Education Sector in UAE to 2019 — Market Size and Intelligence Report ©Indalytics Advisors Pvt. Ltd l www.indalytics.com l 13 Cycle 2 caters to children in the grades 6 to 9, with a minimum age of 10. Cycle 2 is followed by Cycle 3, or secondary education stage. This cycle also consists of three grades, from grades 10 to 12. The cycle contains specialization courses in Grade 10 such as Islamic Education, Arabic, English, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology, History, Geography and ICT — where students choose their specialization. Post Grate 10, students can either opt for Science Stream, or Literature Stream in Grades 11 and 12. On completion of Cycle 3, students are awarded school leaving certificates, also known as Shahadat Al-Thanawiya Al- Amma. During Cycle 3, students also have an option to take vocational education and training. There are eight secondary technical schools in UAE, which offer vocational education and training programs in grades 10 to 12. The schools provide courses in various subjects, such as mechanical, electrical, and civil industrial technology, agriculture, business management, computer applications and accounting. Besides the government schools, there are other private schools in the country, which provide education as per international curricula. These schools do not come under the ministry, and charge fees.
  • 15. Education Sector in UAE to 2019 — Market Size and Intelligence Report ©Indalytics Advisors Pvt. Ltd l www.indalytics.com l 14 After completing secondary education, students apply for admission to a postsecondary or higher education institution. Higher education is governed by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and citizens of UAE, or children of Emirati mothers are entitled for free education at the government institutions. Besides, they can also join private institutions, having accreditation to international universities. The undergraduate degree programs are generally of four years, followed by master’s degree of two years and doctoral degree of three years. There are also some undergraduate diploma certificates and courses of one to two years, which students can pursue after secondary education. Students can also take vocational education courses after completing secondary education. An Applied Bachelor degree in vocational education is of four years, while a diploma is of two years. Only UAE citizens and children of Emirati mothers can study in government–sponsored Federal higher education institutions — only exception being United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) and Zayed University (ZU). In order to take admission in the federal higher education institutions, all the students are required to take a test, called Common Educational Proficiency Assessment (CEPA) — which evaluates their competency in English and Mathematics. For expatriate students, there are several private higher education institutions.
  • 16. Education Sector in UAE to 2019 — Market Size and Intelligence Report ©Indalytics Advisors Pvt. Ltd l www.indalytics.com l 15 The Ministry of Education, under the Federal Law No. 29/2006, provides state–sponsored education to children with special needs. Based on their needs, students are either taught in regular classrooms, with assistance from teachers and community providers, or in specialized class room or their homes. All the schools are also required to provide assistance to students, in form of special education teachers, psychologists and other learning aids. The ministry also provides adult and continuing education to people, who have not completed their basic education, and have crossed the age–limit of enrolling in schools. Adult education is provided, both in form of normal basic education, as well as vocational education and training.
