This usually takes place at school, however can be arranged online in exceptional circumstances. Applicants will be assessed in Maths and English, and have a short spoken interview with the admissions team.

For those transferring schools within Austria: Please be aware that GIBS is an AHS with a special focus on languages, and students start learning either Spanish or French in year 3 (grade 7), and then additionally Latin, Russian, French or Spanish in year 5 (grade 9). Students transferring from within Austria into year 4 (grade 8) and upwards, need to also meet our language requirements, and will therefore be required to take assessments in these subjects.
