Open group

Open group programmes are designed for individuals who want to attend high school in the UK for a shorter period of time.

International students will integrate themselves fully into English life, at school and within their host family. Every international student will be expected to participate fully in class and make positive contributions to lessons.

Students on the open group programme will form a unique group of their own. They will meet like-minded individuals from around the world with the common goal of sampling life in England.

High Schools International run open group immersions in the Summer and Winter during specific dates. So that students from around the globe can join this type of immersion, dates will be fixed once released and will vary year-to-year.

The ‘buddy’ system

To ensure smooth integration from day one, each international student will be assigned a local British ‘buddy’ student, who they will attend classes with. The buddy student will be responsible for making their new friend feel welcome and will help them to settle into their new routine.

Students will be able to connect with their assigned buddy via email and social media prior to arrival, so they can become a little familiar with each other before meeting on the first day of the programme.

International students will attend the same classes as their buddy, therefore the number and range of subjects studied will depend upon their age and the subjects that the local ‘buddy’ has selected.
