Apply for preschool class or year 7
If your child is going to start preschool class, you have to apply to a school. You also have to apply to a school if your child is going to start in year 7 in the autumn and attends a school where this year is not available.
You have to apply to a municipal school during a specific period in the beginning of the year. For 2023/2024 the dates are 11 January-1 February. You can apply to Malmö's municipal schools and some of the independent schools in the e-service. Information about which independent schools you can apply to will be published in November 2022.
To apply to a school, you log into the e-service. If your child has protected personal data or a temporary personal identity number, you have to use a form instead of the e-service.
The application for preschool class or year 7 2023/2024 is open from 11 January to 1 February 2023.
If you are moving to Sweden
If your child has lived abroad and/or has not had any previous schooling in Sweden during the last six months, you must first register for an enrollment meeting at Mottagningsenheten Skolstart Malmö before applying to elementary school.
The application process
If you are not satisfied with the decision
