Our International students aim for the worlds top universities. In recent years these include:
In the UK: Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, LSE (London School of Economics), University College London. Kings College London, Warwick, Bristol, Edinburgh, among other Russell Group Universities.
The School provides excellent UK and International University application support. Most of our students apply to UK universities and UCAS guidance is in place to assist them with this. In addition, we provide a comprehensive programme of preparation for the SAT test and college applications to the US and other destinations.
Career and Personal Goals
Our tutors work with our international students providing individualised careers guidance. This is a particular challenge when living away from home and our students are guided through the University Application process underpinned by a personal development programme. This ensures that the correct skills are developed for each individual course and for university life in general. Work experience is also organised for our international students when the University course requires this, such as Medicine.
Our Pastoral Team reach out to our international students to ensure that they are fully prepared to get the best out of their time here. This outstanding care continues throughout the duration of study and beyond.
Boarding / homestay
We take great pride in our truly London, multi-cultural community. Our international students get the opportunity to make friends with peers from around the world as well as the local day pupils. This is a unique aspect of a Home Stay boarding experience and is much enjoyed by both local and international students alike.
Students who choose Home Stay are looked after by our very experienced Home Stay staff, who work with the Host Families to create a home-from-home experience.
At St. John’s we recognise the need to ensure that the weekend is a good experience for our International Students. We provide a programme of organised events to support our boarders at the weekend to ensure they have a balance in their lives. With London on our doorstep, it is possible to find things for everyone to enjoy.
