  • Independent Transition Year (ITY) (Pre-IB programme year) 2021-2022

Incomplete applications will not be considered.  The Headmistress’ decision on individual applications is final. 

Successful applicants will receive written confirmation of a school place.  A non-refundable deposit of €2500 is required to confirm your place in the IBDP.  Balance of tuition and boarding fees for international students is typically due in full for the academic year prior to commencement of tuition.  For Non-EU international students, full prepayment of fees is a student visa requirement.  

Students applying directly to the IBDP at Villiers School must have achieved at least a B2 CEFR in English, and have the academic skills to succeed in IB Mathematics. Level testing may be requested at the admissions stage. There is also an interview component to IBDP admissions. IBDP is an academically rigorous programme.

Educational Guardianship

Please review the Villiers School Guardianship Policy. For overseas parents/guardians with no prior connection to Ireland, and with no local guardian in place, a professional guardian agency is essential to assist with the general well-being of the student.  All of our international students are required to have an Irish resident educational guardian while studying in Villiers.  In effect, guardians act in loco parentis. 

Please contact our Admissions & Communications Manager, Mrs. Susan Peña, by email admissions@villiers-school.com to recommend a local educational guardianship agency.

Health Insurance

Prospective students from within the EU will need to apply for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) prior to them coming to Ireland.  This insurance will allow the holder to access health care services when travelling to another EU or EEA country.  Further information can be found here.

Medical insurance for Non-EU international students is a student visa requirement.
