The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

NAS Dubai helps students engage with their environment and interact with other societies through the highly successful Duke of Edinburgh International Award.

The award includes the completion of a service based activity, a skill component and the completion of a particular course of physical activity. In addition, a multi night qualifying adventurous journey is undertaken.

NAS Dubai firmly believes that a student should experience a holistic education. Students gain hard and soft skills that they might not have previously been exposed to such as navigation, cooking, camping, perseverance, independence, confidence, self-sufficiency, and an opportunity to experience something new.

The Duke of Edinburgh International Award expeditions take place in diverse locations such as Ras Al-Khaimah, Oman and the Swiss Alps.

NAS Dubai readily offers the Duke of Edinburgh Award at either Bronze, Silver or Gold. Students in Year 9 who are at least 13 years and 9 months take the Bronze award, Year 10 and 11 students take the Silver award and Years 12 and 13 the Gold award. Each award level is progressively more challenging and upon completion of each level they have the opportunity to progress to the next award.
