High School - FAQ

Yes – if you choose the High School Select programme, then you can choose not only the area that you will be in, but also the school or college you will study at! We want you to be able to study where and what you want – so you can tell us in your application if you have a preference. Take a look at our High School Select page to find out more about this.

Yes – if you choose the High School Academic programme you can choose your subjects!

Yes – but this might depend on your academic performance, and the subjects that you choose to study. At the end of your time in the UK, you should obtain a report card from your school or college, and this will demonstrate your experience and qualifications.
If you are interested in sitting exams, then you should tell us this when you apply, so that we can make sure your subjects will allow you to obtain a recognised qualification.

As soon as your placement is confirmed, we will notify you of the details of where you will be studying. The process of matching you with the perfect school or college (and host family, if you choose to stay with one) takes time and can be complex, and we want to make sure we find you the best match. We’ll aim to let you know your destination a few months before you depart.

It’s different for every student depending on your lifestyle, and it also depends on whether you stay with a host family or in student accommodation, and how you travel to school! The average monthly expenditure is usually between £100-£150 if you’re staying with a host family.

On our application form, there is a section asking you for some information about yourself – this includes whether you would be happy living with pets, whether you would prefer a non-smoking family, and if you have any other special requirements or allergies, among other questions. You should give us as much information as you can on here, and this will enable us to match you to the most suitable family!

This depends and can be different depending on the school and the host family! There will probably be other exchange students at your school. Host families can choose to host one or two students, so you might have another student within your host family.

If you have a problem with your host family, then you can talk to your Local Support Coordinator. They will help you to talk about the problem and find a solution. If the problem is serious and can’t be resolved, there can be the option of changing host family.

All of our students and their parents will have a contact person before, during and after their stay. During the programme, our students are supported by various levels of support – our Head Office team, their school and (depending on what type of programme you have chosen) a Local Support Coordinator. We also have an emergency number for emergencies out of office hours. StudyChoice will keep in touch with you while you’re here in the UK, and we can offer support, guidance and advice.

Yes – StudyChoice organises tours and trips every term that you will be able to take part in! Independent travel is also possible, but you will have to get permission from StudyChoice, as well as your natural parents (and host family, if you’re staying with one!).

Yes – there will be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in sports and activities while you are in the UK! You can join a club or play sports through your school or college, and if you’re staying with a host family, they will be able to help you get involved in activities in the local area.

Yes – you can ask for an extension of your programme.

If you aren’t sure if you will need a visa, take a look at the UK government website:
This will tell you what kind of visa you need to apply for, what fees are involved, and what the requirements are. The earliest you can apply for a visa is three months before you start your course.
