Be part of our community and apply to ISLK! We are an authorised IB World School offering the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate. Apply here!

We exists primarily to serve the educational needs of the transient and/or international community of Lund. The school is funded by the City of Lund and there are no tuition or school fees.


Interested families must meet specific intake criteria and students are prioritized according to certain requirements. The criteria for admission are set by the Swedish Education Act, Chapter 24 §4. The students are prioritized in the following order:

  1. Students of international families moving to Lund and staying here for a limited time.
  2. Students of families moving to Lund who have attended an International School abroad for the major part of their education and therefore have a reason to fulfill his/her education in an International School (MYP3-MYP5). ISLK will prioritize families living abroad when they apply.
  3. Students permanently living in Lund who in the near future will continue their education in an International School abroad. For example children of members of staff of international organizations or companies. Families can only apply for a student to join ISLK for a maximum of one school year before the move abroad.
  4. Students permanently living in Lund who have English as a mother tongue i.e. speak it on a daily basis with one or both guardians AND who has sufficient knowledge of the English language to follow and participate in the teaching and learning.

Due to the high number of applications ISLK only accepts applicants from criteria 1, 2 and 3 at the moment.

Students not eligible for international schooling at ISLK

A student who is eligible to Special schools according to the Swedish Education Act, Chapter 7 §§ 5 and 6 does not have access to an international school. This includes students who are intellectually challenged, deaf and/or blind or students with severe language impairment.

Students with significant needs affecting their ability to access an ordinary learning environment and the curriculum offered, will not be accepted if it brings considerable organizational or economic difficulties to the school (regulation about international schools SFS 2015:801 §11).

Each application is tested on an individual basis.

Examples could be, a student who needs a one-on-one learning situation outside the classroom with an extra teacher/assistant, or a student whose learning ability is not within the range for what could be considered normal differentiation and support in the classroom and hence would need a moderated programme and extra daily support.

It is recommended that you live in our municipality

As the school is funded by the municipality of Lund, it is recommended that you live within the municipality. If you decide to live in another municipality, they must agree to pay school fees to Lund before admission is secured.

Please note that if your situation changes from the admission requirements, your child may lose his/her place at ISLK.
