Can UK High School students apply to university?
UK High School is a home-school programme that sits along side your own High school or senior school course and qualification. This UK High School Double Diploma demonstrates that you have dedicated time and energy to your own education and therefore you will gain credible advantage over your peers who are competing for university places.
Many international universities seek out home-schooled students because they know that these students are dedicated learners with disciplined experience to manage their own education. Motivated and committed home-schooled students are welcome at international universities and should be encouraged that home-school education is as valued as much as mainstream schooling. Please take time to explore these links to further inform you that with your UK High School Double Diploma, and your own national high school diploma or award, you will be welcome to apply to international universities.
