Studying at Bellerbys is very different to how I was taught at home. The teachers are very encouraging and friendly.
They aim to make you think in a critical way, which is different to the way I have been taught at home. I learnt exam techniques, which are essential if you want to achieve the highest grades.

Studying at an international college is the least stressful way of adjusting to a new place and people. College staff pay attention to the needs of every student. We also have a personal tutor we can go to for help. Parents can be sure nothing will happen to their child and that we are well looked after.
