Admissions

Admissions

British International School in Ukraine welcomes boys and girls 3-18 years of age of all races, religions and cultures. English is the language of instruction, that is why the ability to successfully access the international component of the curriculum within a reasonable time framework and to thrive in our English-language learning environment are the guiding principles for admission to the school.

For children in Nursery, Reception and Primary, immersion in the English language enables them to develop proficient skills regardless of level on entry. To benefit from our academic programmes in Years 7-13 students are expected to have sufficient competency in English to access the curriculum.

All children applying for admission to Nursery and Primary School are asked to come into the school for an interview. Children applying for admission to Year 7-9 are required to have a formal interview and take a formal test in both English and mathematics.
