International Applications & Agents

We like to build strong and lasting relationships with professional overseas agents.

Helen Eastham, Director of Admissions & Marketing

A global perspective

We pride ourselves on our global perspective and we welcome applications from international pupils. Currently, we have pupils from over 27 nationalities here at Stonyhurst.

Applications are accepted into all year groups other than Rhetoric (Year 13). Some of our pupils will come to us for one year of study, but many, having experienced the value of a Stonyhurst education, choose to stay for longer. Pupils applying for Syntax (Year 11) will join our specific Pre-IB programme which is an intensive one year GCSE course. Pupils joining other year groups will, broadly, follow the same curriculum as the main student body, although there may be adaptations to cater for, for example, additional English support.

All pupils applying to Stonyhurst with English as their second language would have a formal interview in English as part of their assessment. This may be as part of a visit, or alternatively via a skype interview with the Director of Admissions. Other than this addition, the main admissions process is the same as for UK based applicants. Certain pupils of a particular level may be required to take a CEFR examination. The CEFR provides a common basis for the elaboration of language syllabuses, curriculum guidelines, examinations, textbooks, across Europe.
