We are delighted that you have chosen to make an application to MIS and we wish to make this process as smooth as possible.

Before starting your application for the 2023-24 school year, please contact the Admissions office to check availability.

We are now accepting applications for entry into the school year 2024-25. Should you wish to make application, we will provide you with a decision (accept/waitlist/decline) as soon as possible.

Admissions Process

Applicants may be admitted throughout the year based on the School’s judgement regarding the suitability of the educational programme for the prospective student and space availability. Students must be living at home with at least one parent in the greater Munich area. Applicants are admitted independently of their parents' financial situation and solely on the basis of the applicants' academic performance and individual strengths. The admissions process involves these five steps:
