International schools in Mumbai

Expats moving to Mumbai for a short-term assignment generally opt to send their children to an international school. This option allows students to make a more straightforward transition into expat life in India with minimal disruption to their studies. 

As Mumbai's expat community grows it is becoming harder and harder for parents to secure a place for their child at one of the city's popular international schools. Furthermore, the admission process is unclear and varies from one school to the next. Therefore, expats need to start the process of finding a school for their child as soon as their relocation to Mumbai is confirmed.

Fees at international schools are high and parents also need to factor in the cost of extra-curricular activities, textbooks, stationery and school trips. Therefore, if possible, expats should negotiate an allowance for their children's school fees into their expat employment package.
