ABU DHABI // Enrolment of expatriate pupils in Abu Dhabi public schools for the 2013/2014 academic year opens tomorrow and will close on Thursday.

The emirate's education council said parents of Arab national children could enrol at schools near their homes, provided places are available.

There is a 20 per cent limit on expat pupils in each class. Mohammad Al Dhaheri, the council's executive director of school operations, said only those whose parents have paid this year's school fees are eligible to register for the next year.

A Dh500 registration fee is payable, part of the total Dh6,000 tuition fee.
