Program Overview

Program Description:
Our High School Year Abroad programme is geared toward highly motivated students between 15 and 17 years of age, from EU member countries, who would like to spend part of their school year or a full academic year in a High School / Secondary School in Germany. It is ideal for Transition Year students who wish to improve their language skills and participate in regular classes in a German boarding school. Living amongst German classmates, international students enhance their language skills and prepare to pass the "Abitur", which is required for university admittance in Germany.

As one of the few schools in Germany, we have implemented a one-to-one iPad solution to prepare our students for future careers in the Information Age. At Villa Wewersbusch all students are equipped with an iPad and are able to access our course materials through Apple’s education platform iTunes U. We strongly believe that the use of new communication technology can accelerate learning and achievement by empowering teachers, students and parents. All of our modern classrooms are equipped with Apple TVs and projectors, allowing teachers to present exciting lessons and providing students with the ability to share projects and other work on the big screen.
