Joining OWIS Osaka: The Admissions Process

Transitioning to a new school

We understand that transitioning to a new school and culture comes with plenty of challenges.
To make it easier to navigate those changes, our friendly admissions counsellors are on hand to answer all your questions and provide you with the assistance you need. They are professional and highly knowledgeable, so we encourage you to rely on them to guide you through the process.
We also strive to provide a welcoming environment that ensures students and their families feel comfortable and taken care of. Our non-denominational, multicultural school provides a well-rounded education that encourages students to grow academically, emotionally, and socially.


If you are relocating to Osaka from a City in another prefecture in Japan, take a look at our Relocating to Osaka Downloadable Guide (coming February 2024). For relocations involving a change of city or country, we recommend initiating research into our school approximately 6-12 months in advance. This extended duration allows you ample time to familiarise yourself with our academic offerings and make informed decisions.

4 step process

Contact our admissions counsellor who will be your assistant and guide throughout the rest of the process. Speak with them, and tell them you would like a tour of the school.

Return to the school to meet our Student Services who will give you uniforms, Photo IDs, and school resources, as well as arrange lunches and bus services if necessary.

Meet with our finance department to pay for the first term tuition fees. You are then ready to start school!

When is a Good Time to Enrol?

OWIS operates with a policy of rolling admissions,  allowing your child to join our school at any time, catering to your family’s schedule and preferences.

The best time for enrolment is at the beginning of the academic year in August. For families unable to enrol at the start of the academic year, the beginning of the second term in December or the third term in April presents great opportunities for new students to join our school community with minimal disruptions to their education.

However, we understand that these times may not be suitable for you due to work priorities, travel necessities, commitments to previous schools, or managing other affairs. That is why our curriculum is designed to accept new enrollees at any time of the year. Our supportive and inclusive environment for students fosters a smooth transition at any time.

There is room to grow with us at One World International School.
