Choosing the Right International School for Expats

Safe, happy and well-educated As a soon-to-be or new expat, one of the most important and difficult decisions you will have to make is where your child will attend school. When considering school, most international parents have three main concerns: their children's safety; their happiness; and the quality of their education.

How to Apply for Admission to an International School

Everyone wants the business of starting in a new school to be as smooth, quick and painless as possible, especially if it's also in a new country.

The International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) for International Schools

"The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organisation works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

IGCSE and A-levels at International Schools

IGCSE The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is usually offered by schools that follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales (the British Curriculum). The IGCSE is an internationally recognised and valued qualification that is an excellent preparation for pupils who intend to go on to study for A-Levels or the IB (International Baccalaureate).

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses at International Schools

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses are standardised college-level courses usually available to secondary school students in institutions which follow the American curriculum. These courses are generally recognised as being equivalent to undergraduate courses and so participating colleges grant credit to students who score sufficiently well in their AP exams. Pupils usually undertake AP courses in maths and English, although they can be taken in almost any subject.

What's the Difference Between the US and UK Education Systems?

Any comparison of the two systems must start with the statement that one is not comparing like with like. The US doesn't have a single educational system in the sense that England does. American schools do, however, have a number of accreditation bodies, who ensure that they have certain standards and fundamentals in common.
