Overseas apprenticeships

An essential part of the college's culture

 

One of the major focuses of our educational project is to promote access to global horizons for all of our students. As a result all of our educational programs, from secondary school to higher education level, include overseas apprenticeships for all students, these cover periods of 3 weeks to 3 months and are either organised as a group or individually.

These apprenticeships are an essential part of the educational programs and for certain courses they are an integral part of the examination.
