The Pre-IB Programme
To apply for the Pre-IB Programme, please fill in the online application form below as well as the online application form on www.optagelse.dk (expected to open February 1,2024). The deadline for applications is March 1, 2024. If you wish to apply for a space at the boarding school please indicate this in the application form. Note that the deadline for applications including boarding requests is February 1, 2024.
The Pre-IB course is a one-year preparatory course aimed at Danish and non-Danish students.
The Pre-IB is equivalent to “1g” in the Danish STX system. Admission requirements are the Danish 9th or 10th grade leaving exams from “Folkeskolen” or equivalent international exams.
In some cases potential Pre-IB students will need to take an admission test in English, Mathematics and Science.
Students applying must send in two applications.
Firstly, students should fill in the online Pre-IB application form and attach all the requested documents. Before filling in the application form, please read the Pre-IB programme and subject information on the relevant page of the website in order to be able to make qualified choices in the languages (German, French or Spanish), in the Creative Subjects (Visual Arts or Film) and in Chemistry.
Secondly, students should apply through www.optagelse.dk. As this online application system is currently in Danish only, the Danish IB schools have put together an English guide. We have also provided an (unofficial) translation of the parental consent form that needs to be uploaded if digital signature is not possible with the Danish NemID/MitID.
