Cost is one of the biggest factors for parents when it comes to choosing an international school for their child. Each international school has a different fee structure but generally charge an application fee, registration fee, deposit, annual tuition fee and school development fee. Additional fees include those for uniforms, meals and transportation.
Enrolment in international schools is an investment for many parents and requires plenty of financial planning. Therefore, it is important for parents to choose a school that is within their budget. In addition, parents can also look out for scholarships or fee rebates offered by international schools. Furthermore, parents should enquire about payment methods and deadlines. Most schools require parents to pay the whole term fees first plus another term deposit before their children start school. Depending on the school, parents can choose to pay by year or term.
