Overseas Applicants

We welcome applications from boys who are at school overseas for day or boarding places. 

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.

Years 7, 8, 9 and 10

Most boarders join in Years 7, 9 and 10.  Occasional boarding places are available in Year 8. 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.

For entry in 2021 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 British Council administration costs would be covered by the applicant’s family. Alternatively we welcome prospective students to visit Dulwich College as they will have a chance to tour the school, be interviewed and meet senior staff and the boarding house master.
