Apply for Admission

Application for Admission

"Welcome" is the word you will hear most at EMIS. We will be delighted to answer any of your questions and guide you through the application process. The application is entirely online. Click on the buttons above whether you want to apply for a place, or if you are simply interested in finding out more information. We are always here to help if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit.

As a boarding school we know that all children are different and would ideally like to meet you and your child, allow you to experience the school and get to know you all so that we fully understand your needs. However, we have students from over 40 countries already studying with us so we know that it isn't always easy to come and visit the school. This is why we have created a process where you can find out everything you need to know about the school from our website.

Class of 2019 (starting September, 2017) Applicants should be:

  • Born in years  2001 or 2000, currently in 10th or 11th grade upon application. Must be 16 or 17 year old during 2017.
  • Very good students able to be independent learners and thinkers and study in English high level academic material associated with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma (www.ibo.org)
  • With good spoken and written English (a strong advantage)
  • With demonstrated significant community involvement or leadership activity
  • Curious, and excited about learning in a different environment; open new experiences, cultures and people, able to practice tolerance through living and sharing with
    peers from different cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds
 When is the due date for the early bird application? 
There is no specific date for "early bird" application. The application process in EMIS is done on a "Rolling Basis" - meaning the earlier you apply the higher your chances to be admitted AND there is greater scholarship availability. Many applicants wait for a "deadline" and apply at the last moment.  In our case this is a disadvantage. The earlier you apply the better.  

Can someone from 1998 apply to be class of ´18? and what are the age limitations exactly?
EMIS has an age limit policy because we aim to have a more homogeneous age-distributed cohort for various reasons.  Our policy is that applicants for the class of 2018 (graduation) should have been born either in 1999, or 2000. However, exceptions may apply. Therefore, you may go ahead and apply fully but should expect that your application may be considered with special circumstances which depend on the overall applicants pool and the process.  

Once you have filled in the form, initial consultations and interviews can all be done via Skype or phone, and you can view the facilities and get a feel for the school via our website  and BlogEMIS. You are welcome to join our "EMIS applicants 2017" - facebook group https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=270531836480121&fref=ts .

Please note that our application process is on a rolling basis. This means we admit students on a first-come-first-serve basis.
