The European School Copenhagen is a publicly funded international school under the Municipality of Copenhagen. This means that the education at the school is free of charge and that we do not keep a waiting list to the school. Admission is based on a set of criteria set by the Municipality of Copenhagen and a language screening.


The school offers three educational cycles – Nursery, Primary and Secondary. The school primarily admits pupils to the new nursery classes starting each August, but also admits pupils in the established Primary classes when spaces are available. As we expand the school and open our new Secondary department, we will also be inviting applications for admission to our new Secondary classes.


Please note that applications for admission to our Nursery class and Primary classes (P1-P5) in the coming school year 2018/19 have now closed. We have now also closed for admission to our new Secondary classes starting in August 2018.

At the end of August, it will be possible to apply for ‘rolling’ admission in case spaces become available during the school year 2018/19.
