5 most important admission conditions to London schools for foreign students

5 most important admission conditions to London schools for foreign students

Millions of people dream of studying in Great Britain. The dream starts with careful preparation, studying the conditions of admission to the schools in London. It is better to begin in advance, since the requirements of British schools have own features.

When entering, it is worth paying attention to the following points:

  • Level of a foreign language proficiency. In English schools, studying is conducted in English, and command of the language at a good level is an obligatory requirement for admission, otherwise schoolchildren will not be able to properly master the curriculum, they will have difficulties in adaptation
  • Age of the student. For foreign students, the programs of middle and high school are most often offered, because at the age of 11-12 children become independent, which can not be said about the kids: the majority of foreign schools are not ready to accept foreign schoolchildren of younger age
  • Educational programs are different in different schools, so before entering the selection of the school should be taken seriously. So, British schoolchildren are defined with a future specialty and begin to prepare for entering a profile university from an early age
  • Selection upon admission. Prestigious private schools take great care of their own rating and are doing everything possible to ensure that among their graduates, graduates were capable children. Therefore, when deciding on enrollment, the results of tests, interviews, and a report card for the previous several periods are taken into account
  • Financial component. London has a lot of ranking boarding schools, where the cost of studying can be quite high. Most often the school asks to pay for a certain period. 

Sometimes it is difficult to take into account all the nuances, so the help of a specialized agency will be just in time. SMAPSE consultants will help you choose the right school, considering your needs and financial possibilities.
