Admissions Criteria


Nün Academy, Kunskapsskolan has non-discriminatory admissions criteria.
We welcome students of all nationalities, religions, and ethnicities who meet the Saudi Ministry of Education’s regulations.
To ensure that our challenging program will meet the academic needs of each student we are selective in our admissions process. We assess all applicants and observe their strengths and weaknesses before we schedule a one on one meeting with parents to ensure that their vision is aligned with our mission and values, and to explain our personalised education philosophy.
Our specialised assessors’ recommendations will reflect the enrolment decision; however, priority will be given based on the following criteria in the order listed below:

  • Student’s age is appropriate for her/his year group. (Please note that based on the Saudi Ministry of Education age must be appropriate by Hijiry years and the cut-off date for this academic year 2020/2021 – 1441/1442 is 30/8/2020 – 11/01/1442).
  • Students who have a parent or parents who are employed at Nün Academy.
  • Students who have a sibling or siblings already enrolled at Nün Academy.
  • Students who successfully meet the requirements of the school’s entrance assessments.
  • The time and date of the application.

In case of the absence of an official document (passport), the full name of the student must be written in a document with the correct spelling in English as a commitment to abide by it. If the passport is issued, the student’s certificate will be printed in the same document that was provided by the parents.
