The School provides an intensive course in Foreign Language German to students on our Scholarship Programme.
The intensive course lasts for six months, and involves around 20 hours of German a week.
Each scholarship student is offered Careers Counselling at the school.
We have an in-house Careers Advisor (who organises regular Careers Evenings and Work Experience Programmes) - more information here - as well as an external advisor who comes to the school every two years.
In case an applicant provides false or incomplete information, s/he will be disqualified from the application process.
All applications received by the set deadline will be assessed by the scholarship committee and only those candidates deemed suitable will be called for interviews and tests in November, after which the successful candidates will be notified accordingly.
The school's decision on each application is final and irrevocable.
Students eligible to apply are those who have completed Standard 4 by December of the calendar year, usually aged 9 - 10.
We also work closely with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in this area - find an example here. The aim of this trip is to familiarise the students on tertiary education in the country, and students attend University Open Days to this aim.None of this information is published, and this information will be treated with the utmost sensitivity.Please note that a scholarship cannot be considered without proof of financial need.Mentors are scholarship students from higher classes who volunteer to help younger scholars with any subjects they may be having problems in.We understand fully, that students not only need help and guidance from fellow students, but also from teachers. Each scholarship student chooses a teacher who will be his / her tutor.
3) Once a year, a Parents' Evening is held for all scholarship parents. We, class 11 experienced all these and more during our trip to south Germany.
