School Fees for the 2019-2020 School Year

 

Starting with the 2019-2020 school year, we have implemented an 11-month payment cycle. This means that there is no tuition due in the month of July. Monthly tuition is charged, irrespective of the child's first day of school. Odense International School accepts new students throughout the school year.

 

The following is information regarding Odense International School's fees for tuition, the After-School Care Programme for grades Primary 1 - Primary 4 and The Club for grades Primary 5 - Primary 6. Additional costs throughout the school year that you should be aware of are also listed. Please note that upon withdrawal, all school fees and tuition must be settled in order to receive school transfer documents and final Progress Reports. We request a 3-month withdrawal notice.

Automatic Payment System

Fees are payable via PBS, an automatic online payment service. You can set up the payment service via your online banking or by filling out the form here. Each payment not made via PBS is charged an additional 200 DKK manual administrative fee. The PBS payment is due on the 5th of the month. Brand-new students will receive payment information on their first day of school.

 

Public Transportation Subsidy

Odense International School receives a set subsidy dedicated to reimbursement of public transportation costs for our students for travelling to and from the school. Please save these receipts to submit them to our office at the end of the school year. It is your responsibility to print these receipts and mark which costs were related to travelling to and from the school. The reimbursement amount is dependent upon the amount of the subsidy and the total receipts.

 

State Subsidy Deadline

Families on limited incomes can apply in August for an extremely modest state subsidy for school fees and the After-School Care Programme from Opholdsstøtteudvalget. The subsidy is typically a couple hundred kroner and takes effect the following February.
