Expat students exempt from overdue tuition fee - UAE

Something that would never happen here, they won't even help citizens get out of debt.

Expat students exempt from overdue tuition fee - Emirates 24/7:

All expatriate students at Abu Dhabi public schools were exempted from overdue tuition fees for the past three years upon directives from the President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
A total of 15,750 expatriate students in Abu Dhabi will be exempt from paying a total Dh192 million according to Sheikh Khalifa's generous initiative, Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) said in a statement.
The most recent generous initiative by Sheikh Khalifa aims to provide dignified life and stability for all residents of the UAE and to relieve their families of financial burdens ahead of the Eid El Fitr and the forthcoming new academic year as the government of the emirate of Abu Dhabi places education as a top priority and a pillar of development and growth as well as of the country's efforts to achieve excellence and put the UAE on par with advanced nations and promote creative competitiveness, Adec said.
Relieving the expatriate families of financial burdens will positively reflect on the community as they are part of the social fabric the preservation of which is among the government's high priorities, Adec noted.
The UAE nationals, the nationals of other GCC countries, children of UAE national women, children of diplomats, orphans sponsored by UAE nationals, families who already benefit from previous decrees issued by Sheikh Khalifa and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai


  1. I think the government has done their fair share of bailing citizens out of debts every 5 yrs or so the amir pardons peoples unpaid loans..isnt that what encourages the citizens to take loans and practise poor debt management thinking that the government by default will always bail them oout! Sigh

    1. UAE is the crown especially Dubai is the diamond of middle east.No body can compare kuwait or any other Arab country to UAE.People here are AMAZING.Long live the royal family and Good people of UAE.Ihope expats will also support this fine society by not going into trouble.
