Admissions Process

Thank you for considering our school for the education of your child. We know that choosing the right school for both you and your child is an important decision and it is not one that any parent takes lightly. Once you have decided to enrol your child or children at MEF IS, please follow the steps described below.

Send the following documentation to the Admissions Office, making sure that all the documentation is provided in English; we would require notarized translations for documents in other languages:

  • MEF IS Application Form
  • Report Cards and/or transcripts for the last 2 years of schooling
  • Immunisation Record
  • Passport copies of family members
  • Residency/work permit information
  • 4 passport sized photos (hard copy) for the students and 2 for each parent
  • Bank statement showing payment of the application fee

Please make sure that you fill out the application fully – if there are any gaps in your application, this will slow the admissions process down.

Hard copies of passport sized photos can be provided in person, through the post or upon arrival in Izmir.

In addition, an administrator or counsellor from your child’s previous school will need to fill out the Confidential School Recommendation Form found within the Application form, and send it directly to the Admissions Office.

Applications will only be considered once the application fee has been paid.

Following your application, all your documentation will be forwarded to the School Principal for consideration. The Principal will take into consideration your child’s academic, social and emotional development in making his/her decision. If your child has special educational needs the Learning Support Team will also be consulted. Once a decision has been made regarding enrolment, the Admissions Office will contact you with the outcome.

Once your child’s enrolment is confirmed you will receive an email from the admissions office inviting you to make payment of the placement fee to secure your child’s place at the school. Once the payment has been made, we request up to 2 working days before your child can begin at school.
