Admissions

Welcome to the Vienna International School Admissions website!

VIS primarily caters for students whose parents are employed by the Vienna based International Organisations or who belong to the Diplomatic and International Business Community in Vienna. VIS currently accommodates 1368 students of 112 nationalities who speak 86 different mother tongues – we truly are a very unique and vibrant school community!

The Admissions Team is looking forward to getting in contact with you and welcoming you to our lively, happy school. We are excited to be spending some time with you, getting to know your family and talking about the place we are most enthusiastic about – Vienna International School!

My team and I are available every day, ready to meet with you and help you with the application and admissions process, answer questions and talk you through any possible concerns you might have when moving to a new, unknown and foreign county, as well as how best to support you taking your children along on this journey with you.

Please get in touch with us at admissions(at)vis.ac.at in order to set up a telephone conversation or virtual meeting so that we can ensure to answer any questions you might have before starting the online application process. We also encourage you to take a look at our virtual tour and if you are coming to Vienna, we would be delighted to receive you and your family in person for a tour of our school campus. It is important to us to dedicate time specifically to your family so that we can help you find the most suitable educational match for your children, which we hope will be Vienna International School.
