Thursday, President Sheikh Mohamed said that public school students’ debts should be paid off. A report on Wam, the state-run news agency, said that unpaid dues worth Dh155 million would be cleared as part of an effort to help young people pay for school. The program will help students who live in the country and are enrolled in government schools. It will be rolled out with the help of the Emirates Schools Establishment. It will pay off all debts until the 2023-2024 school year.

Empowering Education

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s action shows the UAE community’s deep appreciation for giving. It is also part of his plan to help and motivate students to do well in school. The program helps students who live in the UAE and are enrolled in government schools. Their unpaid school fees will be forgiven until the 2023-2024 school year, working with the Emirates Schools Establishment.

UAE Government Schools

Students who meet certain requirements can go to government-run schools in the UAE for free. These are children from the United Arab Emirates, children with a passport from the United Arab Emirates, children from GCC countries, and children of people who have decrees from Sheikh Mohamed.

Children not in these groups can also go to government schools for Dh6,000 a year if the following conditions are met and they are accepted.

  • You can only sign up for Years 2 through 12.
  • The guardian must work for the government, a semi-government, or a local business.
  • The student must get at least 85% in Arabic, English, and math.
  • The student and their guardian must have a valid permit to live in the country.
  • At most, 20% of the students in each class and each government school should be from within the country.

All government school lessons are taught in Arabic, and English is taught as a second language.

Debt-Free Education and Societal Prosperity

Also, the initiative covers debts incurred up until the academic year 2023-2024. This shows a forward-looking approach to dealing with current problems and preventing future financial problems. By providing help over several school years, the government shows its long-term dedication to making education more accessible and fair.

This project will not only help people with their finances right away, but it will also have bigger effects on social progress and economic growth. The government builds a skilled workforce and a knowledge-based economy, leading to new ideas and long-term growth by investing money into education.

President Sheikh Mohamed’s order to forgive the debts of public school students is a significant step toward improving access to education and giving young people more power. Working together and making smart moves are two ways the government shows it is still committed to building a bright future based on education and opportunity.


Simply put, President Sheikh Mohamed has decided to forgive AED155 million in school loans for public students until the 2023–2024 school year. With this big step, students won’t have to worry about money while learning, improving the UAE’s future.
