There is a huge variety of curricula offered at international schools in the UAE, so which do you choose for your child? In this week’s episode of The School Show, we have brought together leaders from three UAE schools, one offering pure IB curriculum, one offering a blend of the English National Curriculum and IB and one Indian CBSE curriculum school.

Choosing the right curricula for your child is a complex choice and there is a lot of information to understand before parents can really get to grips with the make matters more complicated there are 18 different curricula to choose from in the UAE! 

Jenny Mollon, our Senior Editor and host of The School Show welcomes our three guests,

Together, our guests explain the differences and similarities between curricula, so that you feel better equipped to make the right choice of school.  

Our guests, Rashmi Nandkeolyar, Karen Nyborg and Liam Cullinan

Our experts discussed why curriculum matters when choosing a school, and when the differences really appear between the different curricula? We also talk about whether students can move between curricula at any stage in their education, and if there is one curriculum that is perhaps more rigorous than another?

The School Show will return in two weeks with more great guests and education chat. We would love to know who you would like to hear from when it comes to education, and which topics you would like us to discuss! Drop us a line and let us know on [email protected]
