We’re committed to making the Admissions process as simple and comprehensible as possible
The academic year for all curricula except the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme commences in April and ends in March. The IB academic year begins in July and concludes in June.
While admissions are accepted throughout the year, they are subject to availability.
New students can matriculate at any time during the academic year with sole exceptions for those seeking admission into CBSE Classes 11 and 12 or IBDP Year 1 and Year 2.
Because the academic year starts in April, this is typically our busiest period. As the Admissions Team begins reviewing applications for new admissions in January each year, we recommend that you plan and complete your admission materials before this time to avoid the rush.
We take pride in our diversity at GIIS, and welcome applications from students of all nationalities. Their admission process is facilitated by our Student Recruitment Agents who have been specially appointed by us. To view our student recruitment agents, please click here.
For students holding Singapore citizenship – in accordance with Singapore Law – the Admissions Office will submit a request to the Ministry of Education, Singapore (MOE) for approval to study in the School, before the application can be processed for further review.
Also, please note that, in compliance with the requirements of CPE, GIIS is required to purchase insurance on behalf of its students to protect student fees. The coverage takes effect on the day the fee payment is made, and students receive a soft copy of the Certificate of Insurance by email from the insurance provider and a hardcopy of the Certificate from GIIS, if requested.
You are required to submit, along with the online Admission Form, soft copies of the following documents:
- Birth Certificate*

Option 1: Retrieve the application form using your email id and upload the remaining documents
Option 2: Submit the hard copies to our Admission Counsellor who will assist to upload them
It is recommended that all documents are submitted at the time of completing the online application. Original documents must be produced to the Admission Counsellor for verification purposes.
Upon submission of the online application, you will receive an acknowledgement email.
