Application for Pre-IB and IB
The application deadline for Pre-IB/IB is March 13th
AARHUS GYMNASIUM's IB department uses OpenApply for admissions to the Pre-IB and IB programmes. Carefully read the guide to applying via Open Apply before proceeding with your application.
As of 2023 all applicants must also apply through the Danish admission system Optagelse.dk. This change in procedure does not apply to international students applying for IB from abroad.
Students in Denmark log into Optagelse.dk with the help of their MitID. International applicants who do not have MitID, are required to log in via SMS code. International applicants under the age of 18 must have their parents sign off on their school priority list/applications. This is done via this parental consent form, which should be uploaded to your Optagelse.dk application form.
Applying to the Pre-IB
All Danish and international students applying to the Pre-IB must submit two applications according to Danish rules and regulations.
Optagelse.dk – Used to see your list of priorities of schools/educations.
Students in the Danish school system will do this together with their "UU-vejleder". International students must do this themselves. Note: International applicants under 18 must upload the parental consent form to Optagelse.dk.
Optagelse.dk is currently only available in Danish. Please see the guide to applying via the website.
Open Apply – The application and documents used to assess you.
Please remember to read the guide to applying on Open Apply on the first page of the website before starting the actual application form.
Applying to the IB
All students applying directly to the IB need only apply through Open Apply.
In case your application does not meet the entry requirements for the desired programme, and you have applied by the deadline, you will be asked to sit an admissions test in maths and English. There will also be a short interview with a member of the IB team.
We do accept late applications provided that there are available spaces in the desired programme. Late applicants will not be offered an admissions test should they not meet the entry requirements.
For late applications we kindly ask that you contact the Head of IB Admission in relation to your application.
Choosing IB subjects
When choosing your IB subjects, we advise applicants to seek information about IB subjects via the IB subject briefs, consider entry requirements for university courses where applicable and seek guidance from the Head of IB Admissions.
The school holds an annual open evening in January to provide information about the school and its educational programmes and we warmly encourage potential applicants and their families to attend.
This year's event was held January 12th. In case you could not be there, feel free to explore our online presentation.
