We invite all prospective parents to make an appointment with our Admissions Office to take the time to visit our school and learn about our programmes. We offer personalised tours of our school and opportunity to discuss the educational needs of the applicants.

Making an application

The application process starts when the Application Form together with the latest school reports from the student’s current school are submitted to NAS Dubai Admissions Department for review.

We consider each application individually, taking into account academic ability, behaviour and additional learning needs and as well as age, gender and nationality as we endeavor to achieve balance, equality and broad international representation. NAS Dubai fosters a strong community with high academic aspirations for all its students, is committed to inclusive education and has excellent pastoral care.

Invitation for a formal entrance assessment is sent to the applicant.


NAS Dubai fosters inclusive education and maintains high academic standards for all. All students who apply to NAS Dubai sit admissions assessments. Assessment dates are arranged throughout the year. Application fee is due at this point.
