| 1 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Entering life at an international boarding school can be daunting and overwhelming. However, at Brillantmont International School, the heads of boarding, other staff, teachers and most importantly your fellow students are there to make this transition as smooth as possible.

In this blog post, two current students give advice to their incoming peers on how to make the most of your international school experience.

To make the most out of my time at Brillamont, I try to enjoy all that the school has to offer, with an open mind for different perspectives and experiences!”

Shine as a sportsman:

Being an active member of life at Brillantmont has given me countless opportunity for personal enrichment. For instance, our sports community offered me the chance to experience activities ranging from Badminton to the ones that I am keener on training for, like football and tennis.

Learn while serving for Habitat for Humanity:
Habitat for Humanity also had an immesuarable impact on my life as a global individual. During our trip to Nepal last year with a great group of friends from Brillantmont, I experienced one of the world´s most distinct and striking places.

“To make the most of all the opportunities, make sure you try to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Push yourself and you will always succeed.” 

Get to know many different nationalities:

The chances are when you go to an international school you are going to meet people from all over the world. So don’t be shy!


Learn the language:

If you are going to a international boarding school, you may be moving from another country. To best make the most out of your time, immerse yourself in the culture and learn the language. How many chances do you get to learn French whilst being in a French speaking country?
