School Fees

Financing an outstanding BIS education

Bavarian International School provides an outstanding education for young people, preparing them as cosmopolitan global citizens and future changemakers for a new tomorrow. On this page you will find all information about our school fees, the Financial Assistance Programme and our scholarship.

Families may apply for a Tuition and Entrance Fee reduction via our Financial Assistance Programme. Eligibility depends on the positive gross family household income. Click here for an overview of the Financial Assistance programme or read more information below on this page.

School fees are set annually by BIS and apply to both campuses. The school fees prospectus has been prepared by the BIS Executive Board after consultation with the BIS Supervisory Board and in consideration of government guidance. School fees for students joining during the school year are payable in full at the time of acceptance. The payment option can be changed with each re-registration for the following school year. Depending on the tax laws applicable, the fees paid to BIS may be tax-deductible. Please check with your tax consultant to find out if you qualify for this deduction.

Please contact our Admissions Team for specific information on school fees for the current and coming school years.

Starting in 2021, BIS offers a scholarship. Find out more about the scholarship programme, the requirements and the application process here. BIS is working on offering further scholarships in cooperation with strong corporate partners from Munich's business community.

Enrollment priorities

The Bavarian International School (BIS) was founded first and foremost as an international school serving a globally mobile community of families. These expats (specialists, executives, managers) enrich the Munich region and, through our offer as an IB World School, their non-German-speaking children can seamlessly integrate into a comparable school system.

We ask for your understanding that we have to put applying students on the waiting list if there are no more free spaces available. Furthermore, we cannot make binding statements with regards to timeframes, as changes can occur due to the enrollment priorities listed below.

Children of expat families will be given top priority for enrolment as they have few other options in the area. Next, siblings of existing BIS families will be considered.  After this, we will consider local German families who - unlike expats - always have a viable local alternative (i.e. German state school or German private school).

Many ways to experience our school

We provide a variety of ways for you to get to know our school, including in-person and virtual options.

Digital learning and technology is a priority at BIS, and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted even further into the future of living digitally. Our on-demand Virtual Visit allows you to see and hear about our school from the people who work, learn, and visit here, every day. Join an in-person or virtual Open Day event, or flip through our Learning Spaces page to see where your child could be going to school. A phone call or personal tour with our Admissions Team means all your questions can be answered immediately.
