ABOUT THE HIGH SCHOOL
Some countries offer the possibility to choose the location and school of study. What’s the best option for you? Check the options available in different countries.
When choosing where to study, you have a choice between public and private schools. Public schools are generally more relaxed and offer a unique opportunity to join with local students and immerse yourself in the culture of your chosen country. It is a good option for those who want to have a better contact with the local culture. On the other hand, private schools stand out for their academic quality and preparation for admission to the best universities. They also offer a variety of subjects, sports and social activities. In addition, private schools also generally have more resources and infrastructure, but are generally more expensive.
The accommodation option can vary between the home of a host family or at a Boarding School, where accommodation and education are provided within the school itself. The choice of accommodation type will depend on the chosen program.
The duration of your study program may vary according to the chosen country, allowing you to start studying in one academic semester. In some countries, it is possible to extend the program until the completion of high school.
