Boarding School

Studying abroad is a fantastic way to develop independence and maturity. It is also a way to learn new languages, meet new people, and develop new skills, being social, sporting and artistic, amongst others. This opportunity appears prior to university, and can be a way for students to experience what it’s like to live and study abroad. 

Students who have spent time in an international school have enjoyed incredible facilities, which can include sporting amenities such as tennis courts, swimming pools and equipment for mountain sports, and  artistic resources such as theatres, art studios and photography labs. Many institutions offer cutting-edge technology such as robotics labs, programming classes, 3D printing and much more to tempt budding scientists.

Programs can vary greatly in length, from two weeks to several years, and Alma Mater is familiar with all the best programs in Switzerland, the UK, the USA, Australia and other countries so as to tailor the best package for each student.
