Nobel International School Algarve welcomes applications from students regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, religion.

The school has a rolling admissions policy, meaning that we accept applications throughout the academic year, subject to there being a place available for your child. Due to the increasing demand for places, we recommend early registration. We accept applications on a first-come, first-served basis.

How to apply

The first step is to contact our admissions department who will be happy to give you all the information about the school. After this, and if you would like to advance with the admission further, the admissions department will book a meeting with the head of the relevant campus and section. You will be asked to provide student details as well as last school reports.

Meetings will always depend on the availability of the Head who will discuss your academic options and arrange a tour of the campus to give you the full experience of Nobel Algarve. If you are not able to visit personally we can also book these via a skype call.

After your meeting, you will be advised of your options and of the availability for your child in the appropriate year. When you are ready to submit an application for your child(ren), please advise our admissions department who will forward you the necessary documentation.  You will be required to pay a registration fee (non-refundable) and the school deposit to secure the place.


You will be required to provide the following supporting documents:

  • copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport
  • any of your child’s relevant medical information or record, including vaccination records
  • copy of both father and mother’s identity cards, or passports if foreign citizens
  • copy of both father and mother’s numero de contribuinte (fiscal number)
  • if you are foreign citizens, copy of both parents’/guardians’ Portugal residence permit
  • copy of both father and mother’s proof of address (e.g., electricity bill, bank statement)

Our school office is open and available to assist you with inquiries, school tours, and enrolments Monday to Friday, from 08:30 to 17:30 throughout the year, including school holidays. Please contact to schedule a visit at your earliest convenience.

Waiting Lists

If there is no space available in the appropriate class, you may submit an application and pay an Registration Fee to hold a place on the waiting list. The Application Fee is non-refundable.
