Admissions 2021/2022

Admissions 2021/2022

Our rolling admissions allows us to accept students throughout the academic calendar. We are still accepting applications for the 2021/2022 academic year. Please contact our Admissions team (admissions@akademeia.edu.pl) to find out about a place availability in a given year level.

The recruitment process is treated primarily as an opportunity for us to learn as much as possible about candidates for our school. In accordance with the innovative design we have created for our school, we have also created a unique recruiting process unlike any other in Poland.

General Akademeia High School
  • Entry Points
  • General Akademeia High School

    We offer a Four-Year Programme, comprising two years of iGCSE taught alongside our own assessed courses, followed by the Two-Year A Level programme, as in the United Kingdom.


    • Year 10 – most students will join us in Year 10 for the Four-Year Programme.

    Students may also join the school in:

    • Year 12 – for the Two-Year Programme, involving only A Levels;
    • Foundation Year (Year 9) – for a preparatory One-Year programme before they start the regular Akademeia High School curriculum.

The stages of recruitment

During the various stages of recruitment, we aim to learn as much as possible about the skills and aptitudes of the student.

Parents can meet individually with an admissions officer to learn more about how the school functions, the requirements of the academic programme, the school’s teaching philosophy and the later stages of the recruiting process. The decision about whether to take part in those later stages is made after this meeting with the admissions tutor. However, this meeting is not mandatory. Due to the closure of schools, we encourage parents to contact our Admissions officers by e-mail or by phone.


Stage 1

Taking part in our recruitment weekendThe recruitment process lasts for two days and is conducted over the course of a single weekend. 

Our regular recruitment (assessment) weekends include:

  1. University lectures in English supplemented with tests to check the students’ abilities to learn and understand new content, analytical thinking, ability to draw conclusions, and the ability to compare data.
  2. English Language competence testing. 
  3. Individual meetings with subject teachers: we check not only a student’s knowledge but also, more importantly, their predisposition.
  4. Group tasks, in which we check soft skills and social abilities.
  5. Mathematics test.
