Admission process

Thank you for showing interest in becoming a student at Skagerak International School.

The school is inclusive and non-discriminatory in its admissions policy and wishes to promote intercultural understanding and international-mindedness. Applicants should wish to be involved in learning within the International Baccalaureate Programme.


For the start of school in August, the first application deadline is 1 March. Applications received by then will be processed according to the priority list. There is also a second admission date of 1 May which includes new applicants as well as those remaining applicants received by 1 March. These applications together will also be processed according to the priority list. Applications received after the 1 May deadline will be processed in the order they are received for the remaining available places.

Please note that applications will not be carried over to the next academic year and one must reapply to be considered for admission for each academic year.

Information meeting

Applicants and parents/guardians will be invited to a meeting with the principal or IB coordinator, providing them with the opportunity to view the school facilities and inquire further about the relevant IB programme, before making a decision to accept a place.


Once a place is offered, a signed contract must be returned to the school to secure the place for the student for the upcoming school year.
