Please do not send sensitive personal information to the school via email but use the secure, online application process.

 

Step 2: Selection

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of places available at the school, the applicants who are considered most ready for school and best qualified linguistically are recommended for screening, based on the criteria outlined above.

The assessment hereof is based on the indicated language level and the school report from the last kindergarten/school attended. The assessment is made by an admission committee in January and February.

 

Step 3: Screening

The applicants selected in Step 2 are invited in for a screening which tests their language, maturity and academic level.

Screenings are performed in February and March.

 

Step 4: Admission

Based on the screening, the European School’s admission committee decides which children are best qualified linguistically and academically. The final evaluation and selection also takes into consideration the child’s age and maturity, desirable pupil composition and class formation.

Applicants will receive notification of the outcome of their application by mid-April.
