At Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD), students are uniquely privileged to learn the skills and aptitudes required to thrive in a perpetually changing world, as a fundamental part of their education.
The school's personalised International Baccalaureate (IB) education, the option of fully immersive bilingual programmes, and unrivaled campus and boarding facilities all work together to form a unique and impressive learning experience for students.
For parents, one of the most important aspects when choosing a school is the structure of tuition fees, and the team at SISD recognise this. This is why, to help guide you in your choice, here is a complete guide and breakdown of the tuition fee framework at SISD.
How do you pay school fees at SISD?
You can see a full breakdown of SISD fees on their website.
The first fee you pay at SISD is the Assessment Fee, which is AED 525, due when your child takes the entrance exam.
Within 7 days of getting your child’s Offer Letter, you then pay a registration fee that depends on the Grade your child is entering. This registration fee reserves a place for your child and is deductible from your final tuition fee. The fee is non-refundable except in circumstances that are beyond your control, such as relocation.
After this, you may pay the re-enrolment fee to ensure that your child keeps their place.
Semester fees at SISD
Your child’s annual tuition can be paid upfront or in two installments of 50% each, which are due in the first semester and the second semester respectively.
Typically, they are due on August 31 and January 31. These tuition fees include books, costs of exams, internal ASAs (upon availability) and Early Years Childcare as per availability, as well as inclusion measures as per guidelines.
Discounts and preferred dates
Don’t forget that discounts are available! SISD has just launched a discount to support secondary parents. You might also be entitled to sibling discounts as per their terms and conditions! Finally, SISD recommends you ask your employer whether they have a corporate rate agreement with the school.

If you choose to enroll your child as a full boarding student, you can opt for boarding school fees, which include tuition, meals, activities and much more. This is of course more expensive, and additionally includes a deposit.
How do you apply for admission at SISD?

Then, you’ll need to check the Year Guide to determine what year to apply your child in.
After this, you can apply online to SISD right from their website, where you’ll upload the documents in the list above.
