Admission to Primary

The European School Copenhagen primarily admits pupils to the new nursery classes starting in August each year, but it is also possible to apply for admission in our Primary classes in the event that a space should become available.


The Primary education cycle consists of grades P1-P5 (equivalent to 1st and 5th grade in the Danish school system) and the pupils are between 6-11 years old. You can read more about Primary here.


The school currently offers P1-P5 in the English and Danish language sections and primary 1 in the new French language section.


You can read more about the criteria for admission to Primary under the link Criteria and process. Please note that nursery class is a compulsory school year in Denmark and it is therefore not possible to enter Primary 1 unless the child has already attended nursery class or an equivalent class elsewhere.


If you wish to apply for one of our established classes in Primary, please use the link provided under Apply for Primary and ensure you upload the listed documentation.
