How to Apply

To start the formal admissions process, including the admissions assessments, we ask you to complete the application form for each student and provide supporting documents (school transcripts, report cards). To submit a student application, we also require the payment of the application fee (EUR 240, online payment by credit card).

Our admissions team will then be in touch with you to coordinate the necessary admissions assessments and interview. After these have been completed, we will review the application and get back to you about the perspectives to enroll at United Lisbon.

Tuition Fees

Building a new school requires a significant effort and, while the learning spaces will be fully developed when the school opens in September 2020, indoor sports facilities and the school theater will be available only in the following school year. Recognizing that this will still allow the school to strengthen its program, families will pay a discounted fee in the first two school years:
  • School Year 2020/21:    5% discount on tuition fees
  • School Year 2021/22:    5% discount on tuition fees

FAQs

What documents are needed to complete the application?
We ask you to provide school transcripts, report cards for the past three academic years, as well as any further assessments on the learning needs and abilities of your child. Throughout the admissions process, we might request further documentation.

How long after applying will I hear from you?
As soon as we receive a complete application form, the required documents and the placements’ tests are complete we will then assess the application. You can generally expect to hear from us within 2 weeks.

Do I need to attend a visit?
A visit is important but we understand that if you are living overseas this could not be feasible. Therefore, we will arrange a Skype interview.

My child is not fluent in English, will that be a problem?
We ensure that students who need additional language support get the required attention with a language program to consolidate their English. For those who are not fluent, an intensive language program is also available with an additional cost.

When do I need to pay the school’s tuition fees?
The payments are made quarterly. Please refer to our Enrolment and Tuition Policy.

What are the deadlines for application?
We accept applications at any time throughout the year. However, as seats are limited we do encourage an early application.
