Program Description

UK Academic Exchange - Exciting State School programmes for international students!
International students can study at a high school in the UK for one low flat price on our Academic Exchange Programme!

With Educatius UK's Academic Exchange Programme, if you can be flexible and let Educatius’ experts choose your school and destination, you can study in the UK at state (public) high school for a more affordable budget. This exciting opportunity opens up the possibility to study in the highly popular and academically-renowned UK state school education system.

This is a wonderful programme opportunity for students who are interested in experiencing an exchange programme with British students, schools, and families and also equally perfect for students with ambitions of going onto university within the UK or abroad. The schools will all assist students staying for multiple years with the necessary support for applying to British universities.

Why Students Love This Programme

• Students study on a variety of academic pathways which can all lead up to university admission.
• A Levels, BTECs, GCSEs and many other academic pathways are available.
• Low international student population compared to British student population at the schools.

Waking up in England, catching a double decker bus to school, participating in A-Level classes and making British friends was a life-changing experience. I'll never forget my time here.
