Student exchange in England

Fish and chips, tea with milk or a typical English breakfast with eggs, sausages, tomatoes, baked beans and toast? This is the country of Harry Potter and typical English dry humor like Mr Bean.
In historical terms, England is a tremendously rich country. There are magnificent castles and palaces everywhere to visit with their large country gardens and elegant parks. There are beautiful coastal towns and large cities with their museums, art galleries, music and pubs. Once in London you will feel like you are in the center of the world with its River Thames, its amazing architecture, its history and its unique energy.

Because the United Kingdom is an island, there is a lot of beautiful countryside with pretty country villages to visit, and there are coasts and beaches to enjoy surfing or swimming in the sea. You will only be bothered by some seals in the distance or the lifeguard waiting on the beach. When it comes to culture and history, England tops the list with its buildings, some of which are thousands of years old. A visit to the city of London on the famous red buses is a must. If you decide to go on an exchange to England, you will have a great time in a vibrant and trendy country, with an amazing culture and incredible history.

    High School in England

     

    In England students who are aged 13 to 15 years old must pass their GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) exams and take around 10 subjects. After the GCSE (an exam equivalent to the end of ESO) students continue studying to obtain their A-Levels or BTEC in the Sixth Form College. The majority of our exchange students are in the Sixth Form. These are the last 2 years of Baccalaureate/High School in which 3 or 4 subjects are taken.

    Sport and leisure

    In England not many extracurricular activities are organised after school, (just like in Spain), but you will be able to join a youth group or club in your host family’s neighbourhood. This will keep you active after class and will give you the opportunity to make even more English friends. There are clubs for almost everything: tennis, badmington, fencing, computing, dancing  and much more. The majority of English students go to school by public transport.

    England is also known for its traditions. For example, Christmas is very important and is celebrated in style. Already in September the first Christmas decorations and traditional Christmas markets appear.
    The world famous sport of football has conquered the entire world and the oldest football club in the world comes from England.

    Excursions and short trips

    You will have many opportunities to see England. Our exchange students from all over the world meet at the weekend and take optional excursions to many parts of England. These weekend trips are often organised spontaneously and when you ask the students what they have seen they often respond:  “Everything!”
    Into exchange students have our permission to take short trips in small groups to visit places of interest such as castles, ancient cities, and famous beaches like Brighton Beach, where many English film stars have their homes. A visit to London is also essential where you can see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the London Dungeon, fantastic museums, fashion shops, Covent Garden market, incredible street musicians, and you can even visit Speakers Corner to listen to people standing on boxes shouting their opinions on English politics.
