Further Information on the Admissions Process

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.

As soon as the application is completed, you will receive an email with your access data. With the help of your personal access data, parents can find out about the status of the application.

Please note that there is a non-refundable application fee for primary and secondary school only, which is due at the time of application. The fee for each application submitted is 50 EUR. You can start the application process, save it and continue it later if you do not have all the required documents. You will need to complete the first page to receive your application details. Please check your information to make sure everything is complete and correct, as you will not be able to process the application after submission.

Berlin Cosmopolitan School can only accept complete applications with all required documents. Only when this has been done will an “APPLIED” status be sent to you.

Primary School & Secondary School 

  • Photo of the applicant(s) (passport/face photo, only in JPEG or JPN format).
  • 2 most recent school reports (translated into English or German in PDF format). Please name the documents (e.g. report card 1st year 2017/18). The report cards are required for applicants in grades 2 to 11.
  • Grade 1 applicants, a letter of recommendation or evaluation (PDF format) provided by a teacher/ kindergarten director.
  • Credit card details for payment of the application fee.

If applicable, please also upload a document proving sole custody.

Kindergarten & Preschool 

  • Photo of applicant(s) (passport/face photo, only in Jpeg or JPN format)

If applicable, please also upload a document proving sole custody.

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

Please do not contact our secretariat for details of your application status as the team cannot assist with these enquiries. You can check for updates at any time using your personal login/password ID, which you received at the time of application. Your application is valid for one year, after which all information will be deleted for data protection reasons.

Evaluation 

The information you submit will be reviewed by us.

Waiting List  

Students will be placed on our waiting list until a change of status is made. We are unable to give a specific timeframe for when you will receive new information. You should check your personal dashboard for any updates.

Priority will be given to siblings. Our admissions process does not use a numbering system and therefore no child will be allocated a specific number on the waiting list. Should a place become available, we will contact you to arrange an appointment.

Meeting & Trial Day 

In the event that a place becomes available, applicants for the primary school and the grammar school will be invited to an entrance test and, if necessary, a meeting and a trial day. Applicants for the Kindergarten will be invited to an introductory interview.

Offer 

Once all the information has been assessed, we will inform you of our decision as to whether or not a place can be offered. If your child has successfully passed our assessment but unfortunately there are no places available, your child will be moved to the top of the waiting list and you will be informed of any status changes.

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

Please note that BCS requires an after-school care voucher for the primary school until 6pm. A daycare voucher for the Kindergarten and Preschool is also required. Contracts with the Berlin Cosmopolitan School only become valid after the voucher has been handed in. Our finance team will be happy to assist you in this matter.

Confirmation 

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