2. PERSONAL, FREE CONSULTATION WITH THE FAMILY

We arrange a 60 minute video call to „meet” and to understand the family’s expectations and plans. Based on this we will outline what school options are available and will discuss the most important questions, such as the planned travel date/duration of study in the UK and the key aspects for selecting the right school for your child. We will address the personal preferences of the family, the child’s hobbies, favourite subjects and sports. We will tell you about life at a boarding school and describe what a typical boarder’s day looks like and what activities are available at weekends. We will talk through the travel details and – importantly – will address how the trip can be fitted in your child’s normal school year. We will discuss fees and typical payment schedules. This consultation with your family is free and does not oblige you to any further steps.

4. SCHOOL SELECTION AND THE INTRODUCTION OF YOUR CHILD TO THE SCHOOL

Based on the above we will compile a list of 4-6 schools, from the more than 200 we work with, selected to meet the specific criteria to best suit your child. While sharing the schools’ details with you, we will contact the schools and introduce your child to them in the format required by the schools.

5. AWARDS

Over the past 25 years in working with the schools we have gained a good understanding of what type of awards are available at any given time. We will tell you of any possibilities and will work with the schools to see if your child may benefit from these options.

6. INTERVIEW WITH THE SCHOOLS (VIA VIDEO LINK OR PERSONAL VISIT)

Based on your selection we will organise interviews with 3 schools. The interviews will be attended by your child and either or both parents. At this stage our consulting fee of HUF 75000 is due. For the Taster Course selection our fee is 50% and there is no consulting fee for summer camps. We will prepare you for the interview and provide some helpful hints to make sure it is a success!

7. FINAL CHOICE OF SCHOOL

Following all 3 interviews it is time to decide between the places offered. If the family would like, we can help you in finalising the decision. Please note that we are not affiliated with any one school, our advice is fully objective with only your child’s interest in mind.
