Supports: Admission Journey from Offer to DSC Community Member

We recommend that you reach out to our Admissions Team as soon as you have the plan to move to Hong Kong or if you are interested in moving to DSC from another school in Hong Kong. Our Admissions Team will follow up with you right away and arrange a private consultation for you and your family. 

Our Admissions team is here to support you and your family in several different ways. Once you submit your application, a member of our Admissions team will review your application and contact you within 24 hours to indicate what documents are still outstanding. Once all required documents have been received we will move forward to the interview process.  This can be conducted on campus, face to face or virtually for those families not in Hong Kong. Once the interview is completed, you will know the results of the interview within 24 hours. The entire application process will take approximately 1 week. 

Once you have successfully completed the interview process your child will be offered a place at DSC International School. In order to accept the offer at DSC International School parents/guardians should make the relevant payment on or before their payment due date. Parents will be able to make the first installment to accept the offer by cheque or bank transfer. Following the first payment all parents are encouraged to use autopay in order to settle the monthly tuition fee. The Tuition Deposit is refundable upon graduation or with the submission of a Student Withdrawal Form to the School 30 days in advance of the last day of attendance during the school year or by July 31 for the student withdrawal over the summer. If the form is not received by the office in accordance with this policy, the deposit is forfeited. The form must be sent to the Head Office (in person/mail) or the Admissions Team by email

Our Admissions Team is happy to assist you and we currently offer language support in English, Chinese (Putonghua and Cantonese), French, Hindi, and Japanese.

What our community says

"DSC was the perfect choice for our kid for the past 3 years since he was 3 year old. He learned and developed a lot, made good friendships, and always saw school as part of his life in a good way, with good people. He misses school during the weekends. As parents, we had great support from DSC during the toughest times of COVID-19 and online classes. I definitely recommend DSC as a great option for kids, it offers a safe environment and great support for families at all times at affordable prices."
