The new school year starts in North Rhine-Westphalia at the end of August. Many children in the region will be enrolled at that period. Among them are children from newly immigrated families. There is a wide variety of primary, secondary, bilingual and private international schools in the region. Before start of the school year, the Expat Service Desk gives you the opportunity to get more information about enrolment and relevant procedures.
A representative of the Municipal Center for Integration Düsseldorf (KI) and an education coordinator for new immigrants from the County of Mettmann will inform and give advice about the school system in NRW, schools in Düsseldorf and in the County of Mettmann, school enrolment of children without or with little knowledge of the German language as well as about required documents.
In addition, there will be the possibility to discuss questions on immigration aspects like residence and work permit, change of residence status, invitation of business partners from abroad as well as setting up a business. The Expat Service Desk and an expert from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Düsseldorf (IHK) will inform you about these topics.
Special Consultation Hours are for international professionals and their families. The consultations take place in English, German and in other languages if required and are free of charge.
