We continue to accept applications as long as there are suitable vacancies – usually until the end of August. However you should remember that there are limited vacancies in all schools – and there are more standard schools than elite schools, and more elite schools than boarding schools. We strongly recommend that you are guided by these dates:
Private Schools: September Start: Apply by early April
Public (State) Schools: September Start: Apply by early May / January Start: Apply by early October
The earlier you apply the more choice you may have.
Yes – if you pass the exams in the final year. You will normally need to spend two years in a school before taking any official examinations. If your grades in your final exams are good enough you can then apply for entry to the university of your choice.
If you study with us in Ireland and achieve your Leaving Certificate, you can also apply to any British university.
If you study with us in the UK and achieve your A Levels or IB diploma you can also apply to any Irish university.
Of course while you may choose a school, the school will also ultimately choose you! Most schools have their own entry criteria and most schools have a limited capacity – so even if you are a brilliant student with fluent English, there may not be a suitable vacancy for you in your chosen school or school year. Here again, HSI can assist you by recommending schools.
When you have completed your application and provided us with all the information we need, we will match you to the best school that meets your needs – and this includes subject requirements. If you have specific subjects requirements, it is essential that we are aware of there when you make your application. Remember that not all schools offer the same subjects and this is where our local knowledge and expertise is really helpful.
Yes – this is a key part of our High School Integration programmes. Your students will be integrated into the British school and study academic subjects alongside their British counterparts. They will be expected to participate in classes and complete any projects and homework as per the subject teacher’s instructions.
Yes – we can organise both. If your group wishes to add evening activities and/or weekend excursions to our standard programme then let us know how many of each, and the budget that they have, and we will send you a sample programme to present to your group.
We give an indication of the cost of evening activities and weekend excursions on our price sheet. If you would like us to send you a copy then click here to send us an email.
