UK State School

Study at High School and live in the United Kingdom 

The United Kingdom presents all who visit and stay with a unique opportunity to experience a rich history and vibrant culture. 

Our Classic High School programme places students in state secondary schools, Sixth Form Colleges, Colleges of Further Education, Academies and Grammar Schools. Our team of experienced staff will organise the school and host family placement according to the individual needs of the students. 

Students can be sure that they will placed in and around metropolitan areas of the UK including the exciting cities of Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, London and Torbay. This offers our students the chance to be close to the heart of the action with lots of leisure and cultural activities to experience. 

Classic + City Choice

Educatius offers students the option to choose their placement city with the Classic + City Choice programme. Students are able to choose from our metropolitan destinations while experiencing all the benefits of our Classic programme below. 

Schools and Host Families

Studying at a state school offers our students the chance to study alongside their British counterparts following a range of subjects and courses including GCSEs, A-Levels and BTEC Vocational courses. Educatius will always choose the school and subjects on behalf of the student based on their interests and preferences. 

Our students stay with host families in the local community. Host families are paid a stipend for hosting and Educatius handles the screening, placement and supervision of host families before and during the programme. These families have a strong desire to welcome a foreign student and help them experience their British culture.
