School Fees for the 2022–2023 School Year

Starting with the 2019–2020 school year, Odense International School has implemented an 11-month payment cycle. This means that there is no tuition due in the month of July. We accept students throughout the school year. Tuition for the entire month is charged, irrespective of when the student's first day falls during that first month.

The following is information regarding OIS's fees for tuition, the After-School Care Programme for grades Primary 1 through Primary 4, and The Club for grades Primary 5 and 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

Each payment per student not made via PBS is charged an additional 200,- manual administrative fee. The PBS payment is drawn on the 5th of the month. Brand-new students will receive payment information close to their first day of school.

Public Transportation Subsidy

OIS 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 school. The reimbursement amount is dependent upon the amount of the subsidy and the total receipts.

For more information on ordering a public transportation card, please visit the Rejsekort website.

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 of hundred kroner and takes effect the following February.
