International Welcome

Each year, St Edward’s accepts a small number of international students. These students come from all over the world. In the past, we have welcomed students from Japan, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, China, Korea, Kuwait, Egypt, United States of America, Canada, Australia, Chile and South Africa among others.

All international students are accepted on a case-by-case basis without regard for race, creed, colour or gender. Acceptance is granted with reference to the School being able to provide an effective educational experience for the student concerned and with reference to the student being able to fit in with the lifestyle and philosophy of the School.

By accepting international students for study, the School will be guided by the following philosophy:

  • International students bring knowledge, cultural awareness and enrichment to the school community and enhance the educational experience of the British students.
  • St Edward’s offers to international students the opportunity to learn alongside British students, to improve their English, to develop an appreciation for British culture and to enjoy the unique experiences available at our School.
  • St Edward’s endeavours to provide all our international students with a high quality education, an effective and personalised pastoral care system and the opportunity to experience a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
