How does the application process work?
After you submit your application, your name and that of your child will be registered in the system. Essentially, the application is an expression of interest. When we are able to offer you a place we will email you with the offer and a contract. If you wish to accept the offer then you should sign and return the contract and pay the admin fee (NOK2000) by the date indicated in the email. When we have received the contract and payment we will send an email confirming this.
How are our applications processed?
The Board of Asker International School has adopted the following criteria for prioritising admissions to the school:
1. The school is open to all children of school age.
2. If the number of applicants exceeds the school's capacity, the following groups of students are given priority:
- The children of staff.
- Siblings of current enrolled students.
- Former students of Asker International School that have been to school outside Norway for at least 6 months. (updated September 2020)
- Application date.
Applicants will be asked to indicate on the application if they meet one or more criteria.
We will begin to offer places for grade 1 at the beginning of December of the year before the students will start school. After this date, we will send out contracts based on the criteria specified above. There will be a continuous admission until the classes reach a capacity of 40 students.
For all grades we ask parents for a minimum of 3 months notice when leaving, and if spaces become available during the school year then we try to fill the places as soon as possible. AIS will accept new students as long as capacity allows. Students will go on a waiting list after capacity is reached.
You do not have to re-apply if you don’t get a place during the school year, indeed you cannot have more than one application in our system for a student. We will contact all of those on the waiting lists in March each year to confirm that you wish to remain on the waiting list for the next year.
