Due to our rolling applications process, we consider applications throughout the school year based on space availability.

We encourage you to apply at your earliest convenience.

 

 

Application

Families interested in sending their children to Berlin Cosmopolitan School should complete the online application form. Please, also read and follow the information and instructions in the blue boxes.

Once an application is completed, you will receive an email regarding login information. Utilizing your personal login information, parents can stay informed on the status of an application.

Important to note, only for Primary & Secondary school there is a non-refundable application fee, due at the time of the application submission. The fee for each submitted application is 50 EUR. You can start the application process, save and continue later, if you do not have all required documents. You must complete the first page in order to receive your login credentials. Please review your details to ensure that all is complete and correct, as you will not be able to edit the application after submission.

Berlin Cosmopolitan School is only able to accept completed applications with all required documents.

Primary & Secondary School

  • Photo of applicant (passport size/face image, only in a JPEG or JPG format)
  • 2 most current academic report cards/progress reports (translated in English or German in a PDF format). Please name the reports (i.e Term 1 2017/18). Report cards are required for grade 2 through grade 11 applicants
  • Upcoming grade 1 applicants, a recommendation or evaluation letter (PDF format), provided by a school director, teacher or an educator
  • Credit card details in order to make the application fee payment

If applicable, you may also need to upload a proof of sole custody document.

Kindergarten & Preschool

  • Photo of applicant (passport size/face image, only in a JPEG or JPG format)

If applicable, you may also need to upload a proof of sole custody document.

Children must be at least one year old before starting in our Kindergarten. Please understand, that applications from parents with unborn children cannot be accepted. Kindly submit an online application after the birth of your child.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR EMAIL OUR OFFICE REGARDING YOUR APPLICATION STATUS, as our office staff cannot assist with the requests. Your personal login /password ID you received at the time of the application submission, will allow you to check for updates at any time. Your application is valid for one year, thereafter all information will be deleted for data protection.

Assessment

The information you submit will be reviewed.

Waiting list – students are placed on our waiting list until any change in status is made. We are not able to offer a specific time-frame as to when you receive new information. You should review your personal dashboard for any updates.

Priority is given to students who have siblings currently attending our school. Our admissions process does not utilize a numbering system and therefore, no child is assigned a specific number on the waiting list. Should a place become available, we will contact you and arrange a meeting.

Meeting & Trial day – In the event that a place may become available, Primary & Secondary applicants will be invited for a meeting, entrance test and trial day.

Kindergarten & Preschool applicants will be invited for an interview.

Offer

After all information is assessed, we will inform you of our decision, as to whether a place can be offered or not. If you child has successfully passed our assessment, but there are no places available, your child will be put at the top of the waiting list and you will be updated on any status changes.

Once a contract has been sent, you will have 7 working days to review & sign the document and return it to us via post or email.

Please note, that for Primary School, BCS requires an afternoon care voucher (Hortbescheid) until 6 pm.  A daycare voucher (Kitagutschein) for the Kindergarten & Preschool, is also required. Contracts with Berlin Cosmopolitan School will only become valid once the voucher has been handed in. Our finance team will be glad to assist you in this matter.

Confirmation

With receipt of a signed contract by BCS, and completion of required documents, your child is successfully enrolled at our school.
