We would like to send you a list of trusted schools and institutions based on your preferences.
Please book good quality institutions in advance as spaces fill up quickly.
In the UK, there are many options for summer camps combining English language learning and sports lessons. For example, you can pay attention to such famous and prestigious hostels as Millfield, Seaford , Oundle , Claysmore, Village Camps , Bradfield . We also have options for living in a teacher's family - we will pick up a suitable family, district and city of residence for you (pay attention to the Home Language International program ).
If you have limited time for preparation, then the schools of the USA , Canada and the UK fall away because of the complexities and lengthy processing of the visa. We recommend that you pay attention to the schools and centers of Switzerland , Malta and Cyprus - you can see the proposals in the relevant pages of the catalog.
The decision is made by the administration of the summer school - most likely, if you have a good level of knowledge of mathematics (supreme), you will be accepted without problems.
In order to choose the right school for a child, first of all you need to understand what is most important for you - academic load (English lessons), interesting extra-curricular activities or comfort of living, as far from always these parameters are ideally the same. If the academic program provides more than 15 hours a week (and you are looking for an intensive course), then sports and extra-curricular employment will not be so significant; If at the indicated 15 hours to add individual lessons - again, they will be held in free, leisure time. For a child of 11 years, still, preferably unobtrusive, comfortable training with enough recreation and entertainment.
The most prestigious and well-proven elite boarding schools , organizing summer courses , provide rooms for 2-3 people - a tribute to tradition, a historically established fact. Single bedrooms, especially with conveniences, are offered mainly in modern international training centers - and these options are usually offered to older children (at least 15 years old). In fact, single-seat accommodation not only increases the cost of the course (since it requires high staff costs), but it can also seem more boring to the child-it's much more fun to live with peers. In addition, living with children from around the world will help to quickly overcome the language barrier and develop spoken English. The child will be less bored by the house, by family and family, being constantly with his friends.
Based on the requirements stated by you and taking into account our remarks, we can advise you several educational institutions: Downe House (intensive courses), Gordonstoun (very prestigious, wonderful leisure programs), Marymount School (a cozy small school for junior students in London ), Concord College Course - 20 hours per week, private bedroom), Bradfield College (strong academic preparation, there is a single accommodation). To book places for the summer we recommend in November-December of the previous year, as the most prestigious and rating schools are filled very quickly, the competition is high. The procedure is approximately the following:
Pay attention to the Gordonstoun school: it is one of the best not only in the UK , but also in Western Europe. A full description of the school and campus, offered programs, prices and additional fees you will find in the school profile on our website. Usually places for summer courses start to be booked already in November-December of the previous year, as the institution is very popular and is in great demand.
We can offer you to attend courses in Paris ( OISE Paris school).
Preparing for a trip to summer courses should be done approximately from January, no later than: reservation for summer starts already in November of the previous year, and the most popular and popular schools are filled first. We do not collect training groups, but we work with you individually, according to your specific application: it may be that other students join you on the same dates, but we do not do this purposefully. The road from Khabarovsk to London will in any case be carried out with a transfer in Moscow: our specialist will pick up and book for you the most convenient places, date and time. You can also arrange with us the support of a minor child on the way: just before the flight from Khabarovsk, the official representatives of the airline will draw up a receipt with you, meet the child and board the plane, from where they will be handed directly to the school representative. If the flight will go with a change or there will be any change of flights, the child will also be with constant support.
For the most effective and productive teaching of French, it is worth choosing schools directly in France . Choosing an educational institution, we will be guided by your needs and requests. Also you can consider Belgium - there are also strong and quality French courses, there are standard and intensive options (for example, in the camp of CERAN Spa ).
We have no representative offices in Belarus, offices are located in Moscow and London - but we have been working successfully with citizens of the CIS countries remotely: by Skype, fax, telephone, e-mail and instant messengers, so we are ready to help you.
For the first trip to study abroad we can recommend English schools Gordonstoun School , BELL St. Alban's , TVSS Oundle , TVSS Epsom , King Edward's School , Cheltenham Hartpury College : in them the child adapts to the foreign educational environment, significantly improves English, communicates with children from different countries, overcomes the language barrier. Admission to a longer course of study (in the middle or upper classes) is better conducted at 11 and 13 years. Ideally, for 1-1,5 years before the proposed beginning of education, it is necessary to engage with tutors - in the priority of the teacher of English, mathematics and natural sciences (in Britain the last course combines physics, chemistry and biology). It is not superfluous to get acquainted with the samples of admission tests for the past years - enrollment in the best pensions of England is held on a competitive basis, and much will depend on the results of the examinations.
One of the best summer schools in your version will be BELL St. Alban's , here you can prepare for longer academic programs in Britain . If you are looking for a full, annual training program, pay attention to international colleges, as well as to the elementary stages of education in classic British private boarding houses (although in the latter it is preferable to choose longer programs rather than academic year). A good option is still OISE Taunton , Bedford School , Kent College Pembury.
Especially strict requirements, summer schools do not show to their students. Exceptions are institutions with intensive training - for example, Brighton College , Harrow School , OISE Telford , TVSS Epsom , Sevenoaks , Royal Hospital School , Concord College , OISE QE ( at Queen Ethelburgs College ), Bell Bloxham .
To make the right choice of school, pay attention to the following points:
Booking of summer courses begins already in November of the previous year - therefore the sooner you contact our specialist, the more choices you will have.
The cost of schools and courses can be found in the profile of each institution (including all additional fees and fees). Booking of summer courses should be started in advance, until about the middle of April. If the school involves accommodation in double rooms (in a family or a residence), then, of course, it will be easy to organize a joint residence - just some summer schools and centers have only personal, single bedrooms, and this question needs to be clarified individually.
Yes, there are such variants of programs ("Child + parent") in the UK! Pay attention to the summer schools SKOLA (accommodation joint, in the hotel, there are courses for adults and for children) or St.Clare's (accommodation in Oxford , so you can choose any of the provided courses for adults in another institution - for example, in Oxford OISE ) . You can also consider Moreton Hall .
Immediately warn you that in the summer time, the schools of Britain refuse the mandatory form for students: summer programs have a greater level of freedom. The schools you choose are quite popular and prestigious - the number of places in them is limited, so it is necessary to specify the vacant place in the camp and submit an application as soon as possible. We can also advise you on an excellent camp at the Oundle school - it combines excellent quality of education and strong sports training, a large number and choice of training. Pay attention to the College of Queen Ethelburg and, Taunton School .
We can advise your daughter for a school with intensive English courses, and we recommend that you consider other European countries - they also have excellent suggestions. Look at the description of Abbey DLD College London , Pilgrims Harrow School , Sevenoaks School , Epsom College , LAL Berkhamsted (they have programs for August), Ceran Spa (located in Belgium), Brooke House . The British visa is issued for about 3 weeks, we recommend to begin this process in advance - our specialist will help prepare a package of documents and will write you to the consulate at a convenient time.
Do not worry: the junior high school students of the whole world are constantly sent to foreign summer schools , and among them there are many those who know little or do not know the foreign language at all. However, it is worth considering that in the elite and prestigious summer schools in Britain, Russian-speaking staff does not work; They can be found, for example, in Maltese schools - EC Malta , Inlingua Malta and others. Believe me, in conditions of full language immersion, when everyone is speaking English and teachers are specially trained to work with young children, your daughter will speak English in a matter of days! Among the best British boarding schools we can advise you on St.Alban's School , the summer camp of Harrow School , Pilgrims Bradfield College , OISE Sherbourne Priors , OISE Taunton . German is well studied in Switzerland , in Institut auf dem Rosenberg , Monte Rosa , Les Elfes , Junior and Teen Camp . Usually the duration of such trips is 2-3 weeks - it is ideal for children and teenagers and meets your requirements, for the girl this will be enough.
Of course: with the feedback of real students you can find in the relevant section of our site . We always ask students who have returned from foreign studies to make as full and detailed instructions, write about the advantages and disadvantages, attach photos from the trip.
Can Given your requests to recommend: St. Clare's , Bell Bloxham , Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts , Bell The Leys School Cambridge , Fitzwilliam College Bucksmore . In addition, good options will be Magdalene College Bucksmore , Studio Cambridge Sir Christopher, Jesus College Oxford , St. Hilda's College Bucksmore , Brasenose College Bucksmore . You can see the description and photographs of these camps, types and costs of programs in the profile of each institution. The exact list of documents required for visa processing will be prompted by our specialist - we will advise you on all visa issues and will write to the consulate at a convenient time. Typically, children leaving for Britain for the summer vacation, a week requires 60-100 pounds for pocket expenses.
Based on your criteria, we can advise the language school LAL FL (LAL Florida) Boca Raton, the FLS California You will State University then Fullerton or the LAL Fort Lauderdale, FL - but we need the personal presence of the US Embassy for processing American visas, evaluate how it will be convenient for you. In Canada, training costs a little more, plus docking flights are usually not very convenient. You can see in the relevant sections of our catalog: pay attention to Columbia International Colleg e, Bodwell High School , Stanstead College , also suitable St. Andrew's College, Village Camps Trinity University .
We particularly recommend the summer to see the school from the following list: Bell St.Alban's, Bell Bloxham , Bell Wellington College , Ceran Spa is , Abbey the DLD College London , OISE for Badminton School , Thames Valley Summer School (the Rugby School) , Thames Valley Summer School (Sevenoaks School). They are very different, but equally effective, they provide an excellent level of service and comfort, quality training. For the academic year, Abbey Cambridge , Bishopstrow , Buckswood will do.
So, let's start with the first question. A summer school that uniquely meets your requirements, this is St. Petersburg. Clare's : it is located in Oxford and provides an opportunity to hand over IELTS at the end of the course. Yes, you specified about TOEFL , but if you are planning academic training in the UK , IELTS will suit you more - in Britain it is valued a little higher. The rest of the educational institutions you can find in our catalog: we indicated for you available programs, all prices, description of courses, posted a photo of the campus and feedback from students. Also consider OISE QE (you can take the FCE and CAE exam), the Taunton Summer School , the summer camp of CATS London .
If your level of academic achievement is high and you know English well, you can enter a top British university. But in order to increase your chances, you need to pass a two-year preparatory course ( A-level or IB ), a Foundation with a year's duration will not be enough.
The exact cost for you will be calculated by our specialist, when a particular institution and program will already be selected. But we can orient that the preparatory year of study in the UK (training, living and food) will cost about 30,000 pounds; About the same is the academic year of study at the university.
We can definitely recommend to you such summer schools as St Joseph's College , St Edmund's College Cambridge , Pilgrims Kent College Pembury , Royal Hospital School , OISE Telford . Education at a summer school in England will require the registration of a British visa - for this, the girls will need to visit one of the visa centers in Russia (you need to take pictures and hand over fingerprints). If the process of visa registration in the UK seems to you very difficult, we recommend examining schools in other European countries - for example, the CERAN Spa in Belgium : it is very popular and prestigious for foreigners and Russian children. In general, the procedure for you is as follows:
We are always in touch with you and with the children until your return home, our specialists 24/7 are ready to answer any questions and help resolve any problem.
Of course, we are ready to work with you! Modern means of communication - e-mail, Skype, telephones and instant messengers allow you to work remotely, and many students from the CIS countries have already used our help.
We will help you choose an educational institution and host country, relying on your requests and wishes, we will prompt the visa subtleties and help you to collect the necessary package of documents, fill out the application. We remain in touch with you and the child until you return to your homeland: we organize transfer, flights, answer any questions that arise.
How much of an intensive English language course are you interested in? If standard, we recommend St Edmunds College, Village Camps QE ( at Queen Ethelburgs College ), OISE Telford , Brighton College , Harrow , if more intensive - pay attention to St Clare's, TVSS Rugby , TVSS Sevenoaks , Oundle School (academic). Parents can travel with you, but they must organize their own employment: if you live on the school site, daily visits are usually not provided. Of course, if you choose a full-time form of study and stay, you can spend the rest of your time with your parents together, like living outside the school (let's say, in a hotel or apartment for rent).
Of course, we will be able to select for you a quality and rating school for adults with a study of the German language - there are many such offers, you can choose the best one.
Concerning the examination and the admission, we can say that only a specific university determines whether your level of academic knowledge is sufficient, whether those subjects that you have already studied are sufficient for admission. So it is the university that will tell you about the need to take the Friborg exam. If the university finds that your level of knowledge is sufficient - you will additionally need to confirm a high level of German or English language with the relevant international certificate.
Of course: we have several families from other countries, which we helped to get education abroad, including students from Azerbaijan. We can contact you via email, Skype, telephone - modern communication tools help us to work quickly and efficiently. As for places for rest and study, in Malta we can draw your attention to the EU school for junior students (it works on the basis of the Ambassador hotel and combines effective courses and excellent opportunities for recreation).
You are well suited for the summer school LSE ; Good language training will also be provided by Abbey London schools, INTO universities with summer courses and St.Clare's College. Speaking about the winter period, there is also a wide range of suitable programs and institutions: in London there is Bell St Albans , in Oxbridge - OISE Oxford , OISE Cambridge , and in Malta - the famous centers of ESE or EC . If you are considering the possibility of traveling to a more exotic country, we can find good options for you in South Africa (Cape Town) - South Africa has recently been actively developing as a center for language training for foreigners.
Of the options that best meet your requirements, we can note the school Queenswood . Summer courses are held in it together with the permanent teachers of the school, in the institution itself is considered one of the most serious, rating and strong schools in the country.
In accordance with the laws of France, the responsibility for the child during his stay in the country is borne by the receiving party itself - for this purpose, a special item was created in the original of the visa invitation. Working with us, you will provide yourself with all the financial guarantees: we faithfully fulfill all the obligations imposed on us, provide medical insurance and ensure that the level of comfort, service and safety provided is in line with the declared.
