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.
