Conditions for admission to schools in Portugal, the 5 most important nuances

Studying abroad for children opens unlimited opportunities for education and development - for example, on foreign academic programs in Portugal, the children will be able to adapt to a new language environment, to undergo serious preparation for the university. Conditions for admission to schools in Portugal - this is something that can not be bypassed if you want to receive secondary education in the Portuguese school.

Top-5 requirements for overseas applicants when enrolling in Portuguese schools

  • Portuguese schools are included in the ratings and tops of the world and conduct careful selection among foreign applicants. One of the main criteria is the age of the student. Institutions can impose a restriction - so, for programs of senior and middle classes can operate. The most favorable age for studying in private schools in Portugal is 12-14 years: according to reviews, children of this age are easier to adapt psychologically to a new life and cope with training loads.
  • Financial security. For schoolchildren from abroad, rather high prices for training are established (higher than for citizens of their country), in addition parents will have to pay the costs associated with study and flight, so schools require a certificate from the bank confirming the solvency.
  • Language requirements of educational centers are quite high: applicants must demonstrate sufficient knowledge of a foreign language for study and life in a foreign country.
  • Good academic performance. The applicant for a place in a private boarding school must submit a report card for two years from the previous place of study and pass entrance examinations in mathematics and foreign. During the interview, the student should show himself with the best hand, show himself to the diligent and knowledge-hungry young man.
