Parents

Information and support for parents

Moving abroad for study can be a daunting experience for even the most confident of young adults, as well as a worrying time for parents.

Students who study internationally are faced with the challenges of a new education system, language barriers, unfamiliar terminology, and a new culture. Building a new home, in a new city, can be especially challenging when apart from family and close friends.

Academic performance is important, however safety, happiness, health and wellbeing are of equal significance.

The International Foundation Year is operated by Navitas. Navitas has been welcoming international students to various study destinations across the globe for over 24 years and is committed to providing a quality learning experience, as well as to the well being and happiness of students.
