Admission Policy

UIA International School of Tokyo welcomes applications on behalf of boys and girls from any educational background. We always recommend a visit to see the school before registration is made. To make sure everything’s managed fairly, we have created the Admission Handbook which we adhere to at all times.

The school conducts an entrance examination for children seeking admission to UIA International School of Tokyo. These entrance examinations are conducted well before the commencement of the new academic session. The dates on which these entrance examinations will be conducted are communicated well in advance by the school admissions office to the parents of children seeking admission. Offers for admissions will be made on the basis of the results of these examinations and will depend on the number of vacancies in each class, but consideration is also given to character development and non-academic attainments or interests. To avoid unnecessary disappointment, every case is investigated as carefully as possible beforehand, and advice is given accordingly.
The school also has a provision of direct offers of admission to children with a proven academic record in their old school. For parents who wish to apply and seek direct admission for their ward, it is essential that they enclose the copies of grades for previous 2 years and most recent report card. On receipt of the application, the school will reply with an offer of admission if the Academic Team approves the application.
In the case of overseas applicants, an offer of admission is made on the basis of the child’s previous academic performance. Parents of overseas applicants must provide documentation and duly attested evidence to the school that the child has obtained the desired level of academic excellence. Overseas applicants need to meet with the visa requirements, age-criteria and must have evidence of academic ability/eligibility. The school requires details of the student’s academic record, his/her current mark sheets, and a letter of recommendation from his/her teacher and the school. The Academic Team will subsequently offer admission to students which fulfill the school’s rigorous admission criteria.

Our admission procedure includes a written/verbal assessment which takes place on our premises during a trial class. Kindergarten students cannot be exempted of admission assessment. Online assessment is not available either for Kindergarten students.
Our class placements are completely based on the age criteria. No exceptions will be made. For further information we request you to kindly refer to the grade eligibility chart available on our website.
