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

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.
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 info@engelska.se 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.


At a small number of schools - Karlstad, Hässelby, Sundsvall and Örebro -  we are taking part in a national trial to give advanced placement for families who have arrived in Sweden in the past two years.  If you believe you meet the criteria please contact the school for more information.

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.
We understand that you would like to know as early as possible whether your child has a place. However, it is difficult to give a precise answer before the school completes the intake process. We offer places based on the date on which students joined the queue, but also consider whether they will have a sibling in the school at the same time (syskonförtur).
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 find contact details for our schools here.
If you are offered a place and decline it, then you will lose your queue position and the place will be offered to the next student in line. If you later decide you would like a place then you will need to apply again.
