Parents from all over the world often spend many hours researching the best place to send their child to summer school, and Switzerland is often at the top of their list.
Although this neutral nation is sometimes reduced to clichés of meticulous order, chocolate, and precision luxury watches, there is a century-long tradition of international educational excellence.
This and the millions of tourists and international businessmen and women that come to Switzerland every year, underscores the desirability of this nation for education, business and play. Brillantmont International School, located in the centre of Lausanne on Lake Geneva, is one prime example of this international school tradition.
The Brillantmont International School in Lausanne prides itself on its rich multicultural environment, hosting students from all corners of the globe. The Brillantmont summer school program is unique among summer courses in Switzerland because it imposes a quota per nationality. This guarantees an incredible diversity of cultural background among students.
One small example of how life in multicultural Lausanne and Brillantmont provides a unique opportunity for your child is in the exposure to many languages! Along with the four official languages of Switzerland - French, German, Italian and Romansh - English and a variety of other languages are also heard on a daily basis.
Lausanne is home to incredible cultural landmarks and opportunities for exploration. The over 700 year old Cathédrale de Lausanne pictured is a prime example of this rich history. Other highlights include the Alimentarium and Chillon Castle on the Swiss Riviera just 30 minutes away from campus.
These are just a few examples of the exciting places where Brillantmont Summer Course students go on trips. By having the opportunity to explore these rich cultural treasures, students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the region. In expanding the classroom into multicultural Lausanne and all it has to offer, Brillantmont provides children aged 10-16 with all that they could hope for in a Summer Course!
