About Transylvania College

Transylvania College, Cluj is a student-centered school, offering a complete educational path, from nursery to high school. It is the only international school in Cluj-Napoca and in the region accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education, which has been awarded official BSO (British School Overseas) status by the UK Department for Education, following a series of inspections. Furthermore, Transylvania College is an accredited member of COBIS (Council of British International Schools), and the school is under the High Patronage of Her Majesty Margareta of Romania, Crown Custodian. In high school we teach the National Curriculum of England and Wales, in preparation for IGCSE and A-Level exams, being an accredited Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) centre.

Our campus offers a unique, multicultural learning environment where close to 700 students and 100 teachers, representing 35 nations from six continents, embark on an educational journey while becoming mindful leaders.

At Transylvania College, children learn how to become self-reliant, take initiative and plan, while setting and tracking goals. They prioritize their time, manage their emotions and are considerate of others. They learn to think critically, express viewpoints persuasively, and find creative solutions. As they develop their teamwork skills, they understand how to value differences, work collaboratively and resolve conflicts. These are much-needed skills to achieve personal wellbeing, as well as success in today’s workplaces.

Transylvania College’s seven generations of alumni prove that embarking on the path to mastering personal leadership truly leads to greatness. Transylvania College graduates are honorably representing the school, Cluj and the country at prestigious universities around the world, continuing their education in a variety of fields, such as IT, Architecture, Mechatronics, Biomedical Science, Engineering, Law, International Relations, Psychology, Business and Economics, Communication and PR, Mathematics, Media, Arts.

It should be called The Bullying School in Transylvania - they excel in being bullies - the children , the teachers and the director. The academic results are very poor, the buildings smell inside from mould, they are having parties and weddings in the school cafeteria in the weekends. The parents are afraid to speak and complain about teachers behavior - ignoring the kids, blaming the bullied kids, missing their classes. They have a PR firm washing them and making cute videos for marketing but its all smoke and mirrors. If you want to build the new "cocalar " in Cluj , leave your kid there, say a prayer and hire a public teacher to give him lessons after the after school.

Good school, nice teachers, very nice park outside! but too much bullying and I don't like the fact that students are allowed to smoke there! My children are in the Romanian line, quite happy with it.
