The Best British Schools in Asia

The UK Curriculum or British Curriculum is very popular in Asia. Discover The Best British Schools in Asia.

Why choosing the British Curriculum?
British education has achieved a strong reputation for quality, and is recognised and respected around the world.
The National Curriculum of England – also commonly referred to as the “UK Curriculum” or “British Curriculum” – enjoys very high popularity. According to research by The International School Consultancy, there are over 3’300 schools (as of March 2017) offering the UK curriculum making it the most demanded curriculum across all international schools around the world.
The British curriculum is a very structured curriculum and one of the huge benefits is how transferable it is Ð students can move seamlessly from country to country or back to the UK.

Study in Asia
From its varied geography and breathtaking natural phenomena to its friendly inhabitants and their extraordinary cultures, Asia is perhaps best defined by one word: diversity. It’s no surprise that the tiger economies of China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and South Korea are attractive to adventurous students keen to use boarding school as a springboard to an international business career. Studying a foreign language at a boarding school in Asia gives students the practice and confidence they need to become fluent linguists.
