Enrolment Steps for the Middle Years Programme
Welcome to Matija Gubec International School! We are delighted that you have chosen to enrol your child with us!
We desire our admission process to be clear, diligent, and as simple as possible. To facilitate this process, we have provided below the important forms you will need to review and complete as a part of the admission process.
Please be kindly advised that the vacancies depend on the number of readmissions of the students who are continuing their education at our school.
Steps to Enrol
Step 1 – Application
Fil in an Online Application Form.
Once you send the Application form, your child will be placed on the respective waiting list.
The parents will be contacted by the end of April after the reenrolment of our continuing students takes place and after our Admission Committee reviews the new applications.
Step 2 – Submitting the enrolment documents
If an available seat is confirmed for a new student, the following documents are to be submitted:
- Original of the most recent report card
- Court interpreter transcript of the applicant’s latest report card in Croatian (if the applicant does not come from an IB school)
- Copy of the applicant identification document, i.e. passport, showing the applicant’s date of birth, nationality, residency status and the spelling of the full name – for foreign nationals only
- Copy of the applicant’s Certificate of Citizenship ('Domovnica') - for Croatian nationals only
- Two photos (35 x 45 mm)
Step 3 – Recognition
Submit the Request for recognition procedure for foreign education qualification.
The recognition procedure is started at the request of the applicant who acquired foreign education qualification, or foreign document about finished or partly attended primary education. The request with the corresponding documentation is to be submitted to the Admission Committee of the School.
Once the Admission Committee has received a complete set of application paper, we will consider your child for admission and the admission process begins. Consequently, you will receive a confirmation of receipt of application papers by email.
Step 4 – Interview
Once all the necessary forms are received, the Principal will review the application information and then arrange an interview with the applicant and parents/guardians.
Step 5 – Placement testing
MYP prospective students are tested in English (interview and writing) and Math. The basic knowledge of English is an advantage. The results of the admission test will be reviewed to determine whether admission is in the best interest of the student and to best determine placement in the appropriate grade level. Based on English placement test students are assigned either to the English Language and Literature or English Language Acquisition class. If a student is an ELS candidate, they are placed in the ELS programme. Based on Math placement test students may be advised to attend support (help) classes offered in school.
Step 6 – Decision on admission
Please note that it is the Admission Committee who takes the final decision on acceptance. The process of review usually takes a couple of days and once the decision is made the Admission Committee will contact you immediately.
Step 7 – Registration
After the admission approval by the Admission Committee, the MYP coordinator will call you to schedule a registration appointment. The following will occur at this time:
- Payment of the enrolment fee in the amount of EUR 450,00 (non-refundable/non-transferable) (School fee payment details)
- Complete and sign the Agreement on the Enrolment.
