Overseas Applicants

We welcome applications from boys who are at school overseas for day or boarding places. Boys can apply for day places for Year 7 and Year 9. Boarding places are available for Year 9 and a small number of boarding places are available for Year 10.

Due to the COVID restrictions we are currently unable to welcome visitors to the College campus. We are happy to arrange individual and small group zoom meetings for our overseas applicants. Please contact the admissions teams to make a Zoom appointment.

Entrance and examination procedures differ slightly for each year group.

The deadline for applicants who are overseas is Friday 1 October 2021 at midday (UK time).

Entry to Years 7, 9 and 10

Registration for entry in 2022 is now open.

Most boarders join in Year 9 and a small number of places are available for joining in Year 10. Entrance examinations for boarders at school outside the UK are generally held in October/November each year. Testing can be arranged after this if places are available.

Examinations will be held in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing and Seoul. Registered applicants will be notified of the dates and venues.

It may also be possible to sit examinations at a British Council office or a location authorised by Dulwich College. Any local administration costs would be covered by the applicant’s family.

Boys applying for day places will follow the same entrance procedures and timetable as those boys in the UK. We will interview boys who are overseas by Zoom and testing will be at a Dulwich College International school, the local British Council offices or a Dulwich College approved testing centre.
