Applying to a boarding school in the UK

International students will look to consider Independent Boarding Schools, while local students may consider Government Funding Boarding Schools, sometimes known as Academies, they can also consider Independent private sector providers.

Though time-consuming, the best approach to finding an independent school or to find out more information is to ask us or visit the school’s website you want your child to attend. Applications for government-backed academies are usually handled by the local authorities known as the “Council”.

For local students and pupils attending state-funded institutions, tuition is funded by the government in its entirety, but the student will have to cough up funds for boarding. However, with Independent schools, fees and boarding are paid for by all students and pupils without an exemption.

The money you pay directly to the institution for boarding will cover things such as; food, accommodation, security and care, laundry, and drinks for that matter. With that being said, some schools and colleges do have provisions for scholarships which means you could possibly fund your studies with a scholarship, grant, or bursary.

We may be able to help you find out more about scholarships, bursaries or grants if you are genuinely interested. Reach out to us for further information and free assistance.

Also, entry requirements sometimes vary from college to college. With some colleges, pupils may need to take an entrance examination or an English language test. Again, if you need help, we are able to advise appropriately and or send you in the right direction.

International students need a Visa to study at UK boarding schools .

If you are not a UK citizen, you will definitely need a study or student visa to study in any UK boarding schools and colleges.

If you are between the ages of 4 and 17 and coming from an International destination, you will definitely need an Independent school which means a Tier 4 visa for a child is all you need to study in the UK as a boarding student or pupil. The next things one will need to consider include sufficient funds to live and study in the UK, not coming from a European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, and finally, consent from your parents or guardians. Finally, you will need to meet the eligibility requirements for your chosen university or college.
