How to apply

It is our mission to give all of our students a chance to achieve excellence in all their actions by highlighting their individual qualities. That is why throughout our admission process we seek potential and promise. Each candidate will sit entrance exams, appropriate for the level and line of study he or she will attend.

We welcome enquiries for enrollment throughout the school year. If a candidate is interested in joining a group/class that has reached the maximum number of pupils, the candidate will be put on a waiting list* and the family will be notified as soon as a spot becomes available.

The first step in the admissions process is contacting the admissions department at Transylvania College. A 1:1 meeting will be scheduled, online or in person if the pandemic context allows it. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss our program, answer your questions, and help us recruit families who demonstrate a strong commitment to a dual-language, multicultural learning environment. 

Steps for admission:

  • Contact the admissions department
  • Pass the admissions tests and interview, as applicable
  • Fill out the Enrollment Form and sign the tuition agreement
  • Make necessary payments
  • Purchase uniform from the school shop

*Waiting Lists: if the number of candidates surpasses the group/class limit, priority is given to those who have expressed the earliest interest, and the later candidate will be put on a waiting list. The pupils on the waiting list will be admitted on a first in – first out basis. However, siblings of children already attending Transylvania College have priority for enrollment, this is in accordance with our admissions policy.

Transfer students

If a candidate is currently enrolled in another school in Romania, he or she will be issued a transfer form, upon being offered a place at Transylvania College. The form needs to be submitted for approval to the school previously attended by the student. Based on the approved transfer form, Transylvania College will then obtain the official school records from the school previously attended by the transferred student.

International transfers

International candidates who apply for admission at Transylvania College in primary school, middle school, or high school need to provide a complete transcript which includes all the years of study. The most recent school reports also need to be provided to the admissions department. The candidate will follow all the steps for admission as detailed above and, if the assessment is successful, he/she will be offered a place taking into account the candidate’s age at the beginning of the school year and the years of study completed.

Late admissions

Applicants can be admitted later in the process and during the school year, if a place is still available in the particular class. Each applicant must meet all of the standard requirements for admissions and all of the above steps must be followed. A tuition agreement will be signed for the period from enrollment to the end of the school year.

"Buddy" system

In order to help each new student to easily adjust to the new school environment, Transylvania College has implemented a “buddy” system. Once the newly admitted student is introduced to his/her classmates, the form tutor assigns a buddy. The buddy will join the new student for the first couple of days, showing him/her around campus, explaining the timetable, explaining the basic rules and procedures, helping him/her to feel welcome. Our new pupils have mentioned that from their first days in school they have noticed and appreciated the fact that our school community is very open and friendly.
