How to Apply

In order to apply to the Swiss School Beijing, please click here.

Students applying for admission at the start of a new school year are encouraged to do so before 30th of April. Places will continue to be offered after 30th of April, right up to the start of the school year, but the later an application for admission is submitted, the more likely it is to be waitlisted.

We understand that families may relocate to Beijing throughout the school year and we therefore do admit students during the school year, depending on availability of space. If we are unable to offer spaces at the desired start date, we encourage parents to keep in touch with the School if they wish to re-apply for either the next semester or next school year.
