We carefully place our international students after interviews and testing to ensure they get the best from this experience with a personalized and flexible programme gaining a quality education.

Students are able to gain qualifications in NCEA (New Zealand Educational Qualifications), CIE (Cambridge University International Examinations) from IGCSE, A and AS levels.  As well as ESOL qualifications such as IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC.

We also offer our German students Abitur support (German University Entrance) and have a 100% success rate.
