Admissions Criteria

Nün Academy, Kunskapsskolan has non-discriminatory admissions criteria.

We welcome students of all nationalities, religions, and ethnicities who meet the Saudi Ministry of Education’s regulations.

To ensure that our challenging program will meet the academic needs of each student, we are selective in our admissions process. We assess all applicants, observe their strengths and weaknesses and then schedule a one-on-one meeting with parents to share our school mission and personalised education philosophy.

Our specialised assessors’ recommendations will reflect the enrolment decision; however, priority will be given to:

  • students whose age is appropriate for the year group. Please note that based on the Saudi Ministry of Education age must be appropriate by Hejira years. The cut-off date for the academic year 2021/2022 (1443) is 29/8/2021 (21/01/1443).
  • students who have a parent or parents who are employees of Nün Academy.
  • students who have a sibling or siblings already enrolled at Nün Academy.
  • students who successfully meet the requirements of the school’s entrance assessments
  • students in order of the time and date the school receives the application.

Note: In the absence of an official passport, the parents should write the student’s full name in a document with the correct spelling in English as a commitment to abide by it. If the passport is issued later, we will print the student’s certificate in the same document that the parents provided.
