Questions about how to apply, what happens next, and how we conduct our intake.

If you have further questions, please send them to

Apply in just three steps:

  1. Click Join the Queue.
  2. Choose the school you want to apply for (Every school has its own queue. You can place your child in the queue from 1 February the year after they were born).
  3. Fill in the form including your details and those of your child so that we can stay in touch and let you know if a place becomes available.

It is the guardians responsibility to make sure the contact information is correct and up to date. Updates can be made by the guardian by using the login details sent by email when registrating or by contacting the school.

There is no exam or test for your child to pass if they would like to learn at an IES school. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Because of the way that we are funded we are only able to offer education to students registered as living in Sweden. You can apply for a place for any student who has a Swedish national identity number (personnummer), even if they have not yet moved back to Sweden. If you do not yet have a Swedish national identity number but are moving to Sweden and would still like to apply, please contact the school in question for advice.

On our website you can find all the schools we run, or those we have committed to open. If you are interested in a school we have not yet opened, please email and ask to have your email address added to the list of people who would like to be informed if we announce a school in that location in the future.

Our queue runs on a first-come, first-served basis, in the interests of fairness for all. However, if your child has a sibling who currently attends the school, and if both of your children will be students at the school at the same time, then they may be entitled to advanced placement in the queue (syskonförtur). In this case please write the sibling’s Swedish ID number in the appropriate box when applying for any other children.

A number of IES schools are registered at Skolinspektionen for a possibility to dedicate a limited number of places in the queue for students who have been resident in the country for less than two years, in Swedish called "särskild kvot" which is regulated in förordning (2022:222) om särskild kvot i fristående skolor. These schools have the possibility to prioritize newly arrived students in the queue. Enrolling in the school depends on the available free spots in each year group. Please contact the school you are applying to for more information and to ask if they are registered for this possibility.

At IES Hässelby, our admissions process for the upcoming academic years begins in January. The duration of the admission process varies based on the response time of families who have been offered a place.

For more information about the current status of the admissions process, please feel free to reach out to us via

We acknowledge your eagerness to receive confirmation of your child's placement at our school. However, providing a precise answer before completing the intake process poses challenges.

Our admissions are based on the queue joining date, with additional consideration given to siblings already enrolled in the school (syskonförtur).

We appreciate your patience as we work through the intake process and assure you that we will communicate placement decisions as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

Each school has its own queue, and it is not possible to move between them. However, it is possible to join the queue for more than one school at the same time.

Write to the school in question and let them know your queue ID number or personnummer and the information that you would like to change.

You can reach us at

If you decline an offered place, you will forfeit your queue position, and the place will be offered to the next student in line. However, you are welcome to re-enter the queue if you wish to be offered a placement at a later time.

The student intake process begins the year before students start grade 4. In the fall term, we contact everyone in the queue to confirm their continued interest in being on the list and starting in grade 4.

In January, we extend placement offers to the first 96 children in the queue. Subsequently, the intake process continues throughout the spring. We send out new offers as soon as we receive confirmation that a placement offer has been declined.

To ensure that we reach all individuals in the queue, we employ various methods of communication when extending placement offers.
