 Most British children are educated in the state system from the age of four. The school leaving age is currently being raised from 17 to 18, but the final two years can be spent in college or work-related training. Many pupils transfer to sixth form or further education college at 16 after taking GCSE or equivalent exams. Both state and private further education colleges are open to fee-paying overseas students. Some colleges will specialize in academic courses such as A Level or the International Baccalaureate (IB). Others run a full range of vocational courses. Most British universities are public institutions, largely funded by the Government. They are increasingly popular with fee-paying overseas students as well as those from Britain. This is the only part of the state education sector for which UK students have to pay. We also have a world-class high quality private education sector which is very popular with international students. This includes independent (public) schools, independent colleges, and private language schools. Language schools should be accredited under the Accreditation UK Scheme or on the Register of Sponsors. Private colleges should be accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC). State-funded colleges and universities are officially inspected and regulated to ensure that they meet very high quality standards.
  6. 6. «UK is the home of the English language, and is renowned for the high quality of its education system.»
 There are many reasons why students and their families choose to study in Britain: Around 600,000 people come to UK every year to study English: that's an estimated 43 per cent of all the students who travel abroad to learn or improve their English. • • • • It has the best choice of English language courses anywhere in the world and British qualifications are internationally recognized. The UK is an exciting place to live, with a rich mix of history, culture and global influences. Most students love it here. They tell us how friendly British people are, and enjoy the diverse backgrounds and cultures of the people they meet. Students who come here to study English are far more likely to get a place at a UK university and continue their education here. The UK is a fantastic base for traveling and exploration. Britain is a comparatively small country with good travel links: there is lots to see and do here. Excellent transport links also make the UK a perfect base to explore Europe.

  8. 8. «WHAT CAN WE OFFER »
 Every student has different needs, and BAAS’s partners - which range from universities to private colleges - can cater for all of them. Some of them specialise in short summer courses for teenagers, while other centres may concentrate on business English and the needs of different professionals. Our offers range from family-run operations where students live and work as a group, through the well-known private language centre chains, to departments in further education colleges and universities. Private language schools usually offer a range of different English language courses. They may specialise, for instance in business English or English Plus leisure courses. They can usually accommodate all skills levels and offer part time or full time courses, with flexibility about length and start dates. Independent schools and tutorial colleges offer a range of subjects and activities all taught in English. Some offer summer programmes. Further Education Colleges usually offer courses for students at all levels as well as careerbased training and academic courses in classes where other students will speak English as a first language. Higher education institutions and universities are generally geared to students whose language skills are intermediate or better. Many specialise in teaching English for academic purposes or foundation courses.
  10. 10. For over 100 years, students have been coming to the UK to enjoy the benefits of a student’s independence, confidence and faith in himself or herself is built up. You’ll see them everywhere. Poised, confident, socially assured, they have an aura of brightness, smartness and success. And whatever job they are doing, you know they are giving it everything, achieving in it and leading a successful life. Once you know what you are looking for, it is not difficult to spot people who have been educated at a UK independent school. There is a quality about them, a cool, individual, sometimes quirky, self-assurance that perhaps more than anything makes them a pleasure to meet and to get to know.
  11. 11. Independent or Public Schools are known as Private sector in British education. They are expensive and have very high academic standards which allows your child to go to top universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, LSE. Children live at school during term time, only returning home at half term and during the main holidays (Christmas, Easter and Summer). As children live at school, there is a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities, such as astronomy, chess, computers, debating, public speaking, photography. Music and drama play a large part of school life outside the classroom children are encouraged to learn to play a musical instrument or join a choir. Sport is also very much to the fore and nowadays the traditional games such as football, rugby, cricket, tennis, netball and hockey are complemented by activities such as aerobics, canoeing, horse-riding, rock-climbing, squash and swimming.  !   All schools chosen by BAAS have strong EFL (English as a Foreign Language) departments to assist children from overseas with extra English for the first term or as required. If you were to ask current parents why
 they chose Independent school for their son or daughter, they would tell you that the children here are cheerful, balanced, at ease with themselves and each other – yet excited and enthused by the challenges before them. They might add that co-educational college succeeds in combining academic excellence with a wealth of extracurricular opportunities, all underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and enthusiasms of each child. As Head Master, I believe passionately
 in the importance of the individual. Every child at Independent school is valued for his or her own sake, encouraged to develop his or her talents to the full in a community where there are no stereotypes and where every achievement, however small, is noticed. Richard Cairns, Head Master of Brighton College
  13. 13. SCHOOL FEES
 When choosing a UK boarding school for your child, you will need to take into account the fees a school charges. The cost of a UK boarding education may initially appear high, but when you take into account the quality of the teaching, the small classes (the average teacher-to-pupil ratio in 2008/09 was 1:9.5), the high level of care and supervision, the good accommodation and food, the excellent academic and sports facilities, and the numerous extracurricular activities, it represents a very cost-effective package. Teaching at all levels at Independent school is characterised by passion. Pupils are inspired by gifted and enthusiastic teachers to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Fees vary widely from school to school. The 2009 Independent Schools Council Annual Census revealed that the average boarding fee per term for pupils at senior schools was £7,748, with day fees at around £3,428. Preparatory school fees are a little less, at an average of £4,511 per term for boarders, and £3,236 per term for day pupils. Fees are payable in advance and overseas account holders may be required to give a substantial deposit, generally one term’s fees. 
 Fees are charged per term – invoices are sent out before the beginning of term, and the fees should be paid in full by the first day of term. Many schools offer a variety of payment methods, ranging from lump-sum payments to monthly direct debit. All schools require at least one term’s notice of withdrawal of a child, otherwise another term’s fees will be payable.
 Fees will usually include tuition and most recreational activities, accommodation and food. Fees may also include basic laundry and textbooks, but uniforms will not usually be included. ‘Extras’ will be put on the bill for the next term, so be sure to find out what these may be before you incur additional expenses. Likely extras could be private music lessons, horse riding, dry cleaning and outings, such as theatre trips. In recent years, annual fee increases have been in the region of 5–6%, although they do vary from school to school.

The Medics Programme has been really helpful, I was able to get support with writing my personal statement, setting up work experience with a local Veterinary Practice and help with my interview technique. I’ve had to work really hard this year but now I have my place I can relax a bit! Without this Programme I doubt I would have achieved my place at Cambridge” Reimi Konda, Japanese A*A*A*A*

  15. 15. “I was always keen to study at a traditional boarding school and private college offered everything I was looking for but with the attraction of not being isolated in the middle of the countryside. I enjoy the flexibility
 of being able to take trips at the weekend or going out with my friends. Canterbury is very historic and with the countryside so close there is always lots of activities to do.” Eni Shemaj, Albanian A*A*A*

  21. 21. age : 13-18 STATE SCHOOL PLACEMENT (family only) At our schools we recognise that students are primarily seeking to use their language skills in communicative situations. Therefore the lessons encourage learners to communicate their ideas through speaking and listening. Learning a language requires more than simply studying isolated words and grammatical features. Throughout our courses all language is presented in context and students are encouraged to be aware of its use, meaning and form before putting it into practice. We provide materials that are specifically aimed at young learners on short courses and students are encouraged to keep diaries and vocabulary books. We also deliver project based lessons linked to interests. Our course syllabus is in line with the CEF (Common European Framework). Upon completion, each student is graded and awarded a course certificate. We hope then that each student returns to their country of origin proud of their achievements with us, with an improved level of English, some new friends from around the world, and some great memories!

Academic year FOUNDATION, A-LEVEL, IB COURSES (residence) “Key to the College’s environment is inspirational teaching.” The College has a teaching body that must rank among the best in England. They care about the subjects they teach; they convey that enthusiasm to the children; and, together, they create a climate of learning that inspires the young people here to realise their dreams and to achieve more than anyone ever thought possible. That achievement is particularly noticeable in these courses, where excellent results are achieved alongside a stimulating and extensive range of cocurricular opportunities. The courses at the College provides a supportive environment in which pupils can develop their academic, creative and sporting interests. We place great emphasis on developing the individual interests of our students. We encourage them to be independent, whilst ensuring that they are supported as they make the decisions that will affect the future path of their lives. We want our pupils to be at ease with themselves and the society of which they are part: tolerant, caring and kind, but ambitious for themselves. Pre-university pupils apply to leading universities across the UK and, increasingly, the USA and Europe, with the vast majority proceeding to their first choice institution. The most popular destinations are Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, LSE, Imperial and Manchester. Pupils are well supported through the university application process by the Head of school or their tutor.

  63. 63. THE SAFETY OF EACH AND EVERY CHILD IS PARAMOUNT Our guardianship service is designed to provide for every need that a child in a British school would require and which would normally be provided by their natural parents. We maintain contact with parents/agents by e-mail, letter or telephone, reporting regularly on each student’s progress and immediately should any particular event or incident merit attention. From Head Office, our staff co-ordinate the activities of a highly trained team of Local Coordinators throughout the UK who act as local guardians, living close to the child’s school and providing constant care and support. They maintain regular, individual contact with all of our students by telephone, e-mail and personal visits, passing a constant flow of information back to us for transmission to parents. This also means that if you have children at different schools within the United Kingdom, we can provide guardianship cover for all of them, meaning you only have to deal with one organisation. We hope to allay the understandable anxiety of parents whose children are many miles away from home and to provide the pupil with the friendship and security to enable them to fulfil their place at the school with the same confidence as their peers whose parents are close at hand. For private school students we arrange family accommodation during half term holidays and exeat weekends and can also provide host families for day children.
