There are fewer international schools in Munich than Berlin, so expats should apply as far ahead as they can to secure a place for their children.

International schools follow various curricula and have special programmes to help students make a smooth transition into life in Munich.

Expats should try to negotiate an educational allowance into their employment contract since fees at German international schools are high and can easily exceed EUR 15,000 per year. On top of this, parents often have to pay for uniforms, stationary, school excursions and various extra-curricular activities.
