Our Webinar Series "4 Schools - 1 Topic"

In our monthly webinar series we invite representatives of four schools to talk about one topic that is related to some aspect of the daily life in British boarding schools.  

Webinar III: 4 Schools - 1 Topic: Brexit - What will change for EU boarders?

Saturday, 20.02.2021 at 10:30 Uhr (Central European Time)


How will Brexit impact the lives of boarding students from EU countries who are in Britain for a short or long term stay? Are visas required? Are there changes in how the pupils are insured or how their British exams are recognised at home? We will be discussing these and other questions in our third webinar in the series with representatives from four boarding schools. 

Our guest will be announced soon.

You can already register for this event: link to online registration

The event will take about an hour and you will be able to submit questions to the speakers either beforehand or during the event.

Please note that all the webinars in this series will be conducted in English.
