Students Applying to Nursery and Reception

Students applying for entry in the Early Years must submit current/prior school records and a Confidential Early Years Teacher Comment Report from their current teacher if the student has had previous education. Parents will also need to complete a form similar to the Confidential Report. Students entering Nursery and Reception must be toilet trained. All applications are reviewed by the Admissions Committee before a place is offered.

Students Applying to Year 1 and Year 2

Students applying for entry into Year 1 and Year 2 must submit current/prior school records. A Confidential Teacher Comment Report from their class teacher or Principal is also required. Once the Confidential Comment Report is submitted, the student will also be assessed by the Head or Deputy Head of DUCKS for their year level before the Admissions Committee reviews the application or a place is offered.

Students Applying to Junior School (Year 3 to Year 6)

Students applying for entry into Years 3-6 must submit current/prior school records. A Confidential Teacher Comment Report from their class teacher or Principal is also required. Students also undertake assessments to ensure they can access the curriculum. The Cognitive Ability Test (CAT) consists of verbal, quantitative and non-verbal assessments. Candidates whose first language is English will also complete a 30-minute writing assignment. Candidates whose first language is something other than English will also take an “English as an Additional Language" assessment.

Entry into Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13

Entry into Year 11

Applications for enrolment into Year 11 are considered on a case by case basis and are typically not considered for Term 2 and 3 as current students will be on study leave for mock exams and final exams for a large portion of this period.

Entry into Year 12

Candidates applying for a place in Year 12 will be interviewed by the IB Coordinator or Head of Senior School.

Entry into Year 13

The College will very rarely consider entry into Year 13. To be considered, students must be applying from a nearly identical IB programme and is evaluated on a case by case basis.

Once all items have been received, the Admission Committee will review the student's application materials and inform parents about the admission decision. As Dulwich College Seoul is a selective school, not all students who apply will be offered a place. We select in those students who appear to be most likely to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.

Overseas Candidates

Special arrangements can be made for the entrance assessments to be administered at the candidate's current school. Dulwich College Shanghai will cover the costs of delivery to the current school, but not the return costs. The current school may choose to pass such costs on to the parent. If a candidate cannot be interviewed, a provisional place may be offered which can be withdrawn if the College later determines it cannot support the child's needs or there is a concern raised that was not previously known.
