Private schools in Dubai are allowed to hold in-person graduation ceremonies this year for students completing Grade 12/Year 13.
The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has reversed its previous directive which said the events could only be held online.
The private education regulator clarified that the schools can now go ahead with the ceremonies, provided they follow the health and safety protocols.
It added that the events can be held either within the school campus or at an external venue.
