While we try to include as much relevant information as possible on our website, it cannot fully communicate the wonderful atmosphere you witness once you set foot in our campus.
Therefore, in order to make an informed decision regarding the best opportunities available for your children’s education, we invite you to make an appointment for a private tour of our school. The tours may be scheduled Monday-Friday, between 8:30 AM-4:30 PM by sending a message to the Department of Admissions.
Admission criteria for pre-school (2017-2018 school year)
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 an entrance exams, appropriate for the level and line of study he or she will attend.
We welcome inquiries 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 scheduling a visit at Transylvania College. You will be invited to take an individual tour, guided by a member of the admissions team. The purpose of this visit 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. Prospective students may have the opportunity to sit in on classes and meet students and teachers in order to find answers to all their questions regarding Transylvania College.
*Waiting Lists: on the British International Like and in our kindergarten groups the enrollment cap is 20, with two exceptions: in the nursery group dedicated to children 1-2 years old, the class group size is 16 (children to adult ratio is 8:1); in the nursery group for children who are 2-3 years old, the class group size is 18. On the Romanian line, the maximum enrollment capacity/class is 24.
Our high school classes vary in size, as students may join subject-specific groups, according to their options.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
