Transfer Certificates

Transfer from a school outside of Dubai

Students transferring from a school outside of Dubai require an original hard copy Transfer Certificate. This should be obtained from your child’s current school and submitted to our admissions office.

Transfer from a school within of Dubai

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) requires a system-generated Transfer Certificate to register students at a new school in Dubai. If you have not done so already, please inform your current school of your intentions to withdraw. 

For those joining Dubai International Private School (Al-Quoz) from another school within Dubai, please obtain a TC from your child’s current school in order to complete the registration process.

Entry Criteria

Dubai International Private School adhere to admission policy that does not discriminate against any child or family. We welcome all children to apply, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or religion.

Students are required to undergo assessment tests before a place can be offered. Throughout the process, the family is guided every step of the way by our Registration Team. Additionally, DIPS believes that every student is unique in his or her own way.  We actively support our students in a safe, caring and enriching environment that allows them to mature academically, emotionally, physically and socially.  Students identified as having SODs have full access to our curriculum and are integrated into all aspects of the school so that they may reach their full potential. DIPS provides SODs with the curriculum which meets their individualized needs.
