Frequently Asked Questions

We are pleased to assist you and to provide you with information! In the list of Frequently Asked Questions, you will find answers to many aspects of the European School Munich.

Can I enroll my child even if I am not employed at the Patent Office or at a EU institution?

Taking into account the current admissions policy of the ESM, an enrollment of Category III pupils in all language sections is only possible for siblings and/or children from other European schools in classes with fewer than 24 pupils.

Category III children who are not siblings or come from other European schools can only be enrolled in the smaller language sections provided that the limit of 9 pupils has not been reached.

Enrolment of Category III children is only possible if the conditions outlined in the admission criteria are being met.

Are siblings automatically enrolled?
