How to Apply

Dresden International School seeks to enroll motivated and curious students. Admission is open throughout the year and applications are accepted based on the suitability of our educational programme for the prospective student and the availability of places.

As we are not a boarding school, we can only accept applications from abroad, if the student will live with a legal guardian/parent(s) here.

Admissions available during Covid-19 Partial School Closure

In accordance with Saxony state authorities guidance DIS is opening for some classes from Wednesday, May 6.

Although campus is only partial open, the Admisisons office remains available for inquiries and will continue to process applications and provide admission decisions.

Personal school tours can take place again with the necessary security precautions such as face masks, and/or safety distance and a self-declaration form. In addition to this, we offer virtual school tours and individual video call consultations. We are looking forward to showing you our school and answering any questions you may have - both personally or virtually.  

Please contact our Admissions Officer, Katrin Schreiber, to schedule your appointment or if you have questions.
