"IES, Vasteras is a place where every student gets the chance to be who they are and have their voice heard. A special team is actively trying to create a calm environment for students to focus on studies. Additionally we all get the opportunity to get the support we need to learn and improve academically and as a person."

Find the answer to your question

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.

Most of our schools begin their intake for the following academic year in the autumn term. The length of the process depends on how quickly we hear back from families who are offered places.

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 find contact details for our schools here.

There are no fees to attend IES schools. Our schools are funded in the same way as those run by the municipality, through the Swedish tax system and the school voucher (skolpeng).
