Be an exchange student in England!

Learn more about your foreign exchange program in England with Nacel: Are you planning to continue your education in England? Or do you wish to attend a school year abroad in England for a semester or a year?

We are offering a variety of educational programs in England that will allow you to experience and have a better understanding of the English language and educational system.

England has a very unique secondary school system; pupils complete their GCSE program (that stands for General Certificate of Secondary Education) at 15 years old and may then enter a Further Education College, from 16 years old, where they can study A-levels or BTEC courses (16 and 17 years old).

You may apply to study in England for:

  • your 12th grade: this may be a good option especially if you have almost all your credits for your secondary school graduation 
  • a Gap abroad: you may come after US High School graduation, for a Gap year, and specialize in the study area you wish to attend at College level

During their time at the College, high school exchange students attend their 12th and 13th years, which are preparation years to enter a British University. Students that select BTEC courses (vocational courses), also study up to the 13th year, and then may also enter a University in the UK.

Our school year abroad in England offers international high school exchange students to: 

  • attend one term (3 months), one semester (5 months) or one school year in England (10 months)
  • be welcomed by a British host family for the cultural experience. 

Please read the information below to learn more about the student exchange in England.
