Choosing the best education for expat children
As many of other challenges expats face when moving abroad, ensuring that the best possible education will be available for your children is not an easy task.
Every country’s education system is different. Choosing between sending your child to either a local or international school involves examining the benefits and disadvantages of each option in the new country you are moving to. Researching and planning in advance is essential to ensure the best education, and to manage financial expectations.
Moving to a foreign country often becomes a difficult transition for expat children who are unaccustomed to the new language; a main reason for expats who opt for International schooling options.
International schools offer children the opportunity to learn the native language while being immersed in the culture, alongside peers from many other countries. They can also broaden prospects for further studies abroad, as they provide pupils the opportunity to choose between a local university and one in a different country.
