Every year, the student admissions team interviews a large number of students from primary schools throughout Graz and beyond. Following this process, the three new Year 1 classes are formed, each comprising 25 students. For incoming Year 1 students the admission procedure will be as follows:
There is an early admissions policy for GIBS, accepting online applications from 1st-20th December 2023 (s. application form below).
You need to upload a copy/scan of your child’s report cards (Schulnachricht and Jahreszeugnis) for the school year 2022/23. If your child has not attended a primary/elementary school in Austria, please upload the last two report cards from the school(s) they have attended.

- Bilingual students (English and German) will be interviewed in both languages.
- We will continue to give priority to English-speaking students who fulfil the standard requirements for attending GIBS.
- Primary school grades will be taken into consideration.
