If you are inclined to apply for admission to AIS-Salzburg, you need to be certain that all of your questions have been answered by the school personnel, faculty, administration and staff.

AIS-Salzburg has a rolling admissions process whereby applications can be accepted throughout the year and a waiting list is created only after all dormitory spaces have been filled.   We recommend, therefore, that your applications be submitted and complete before May 31 of each year.  This is especially important if you require a visa to enroll in our school as the process can take up to eight weeks to complete successfully.  

Please look through the steps below and let us know if you have any questions.
