The Benefits of an International Education

Moving to another country can be daunting in itself, but making sure your child is safe and secure in their new school is also another factor. International schools are a great way to bring your child into both a western and successful curriculum that won’t be alienating for them.

There are of course a number of benefits to an international education, which are talked about in this latest blog from this founding school in the UK.

Children gain a huge perspective

They’re in a different environment when going to an international school. There’s a whole new perspective for them to be aware of when learning abroad where they’re able to learn a new language, make friends from different cultures and learn about the rich history of the country they’re in.

Children can be more engaged, have increased self-esteem and on average tend to build new and exciting relationships due to their improved confidence.

Increased career opportunities in the future

Of course your child’s enjoyment will be coming first, but it’s also worth noting that your child will be learning in preparation for the future. Having the chance to learn a new language, gain a breadth of enhanced skills and the tendency to be more mature.

A lot of these transferable skills can be used to catapult their career in some of the most successful industries, and be able to diversify their profile with a second language under their belt too.

International schools are increasing in importance

A lot more schools, especially in Asia, are accepting more western ideals when it comes to school curriculums. It means that these kinds of schools will soon be quite commonplace and adaptive to the latest curriculum changes.

As it’s now much easier to live in a different country for work or for personal reasons, children will soon be able to fit in when attending an international school. Qualifications that are recognised across the globe, like Cambridge-accredited qualifications, are also taught in these schools so that your child has the biggest chances of success.

    My children greatly benefited from going to school locally when we lived in the UAE and Switzerland, as there was loads of choice of schools following UK curriculum, International Baccalaureat and others. However, if you’re living in a developing country then unfortunately local schools are often poorly funded and resourced so that a UK boarding school becomes the only option.
