School fees are up there with housing as one of the highest costs of living here in the UAE so what are parents getting for those fees? In this panel discussion at the Which School Show, we’ve brought together leaders from four schools in the UAE to explain what value for money in education really means.

Our host for this session was's International Editor, Carli Allan. And to help the UAE's parents evaluate what 'value for money' really means when it comes to their child's education, we were joined by a panel of education experts including:

Our four experts discussed what is included/not included in tuition fees, what additional extras such as school transport and extra-curricular activities need to be budgeted for, where should parents look for discounted fees, and why do different schools vary in cost?
