Student Mobility Programme
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the ongoing health crisis, the programme will not take place during the school years 2020-2021 or 2021-2022. Click here to see the official announcement from the Office of the Secretary General of the European Schools (15.03.21).
It is possible to request an exchange (Student mobility programme) with any other European School (subject to approval by both Directors) as follows:
S4: Short period of time (4-6 weeks but could be whole first trimester, depending on the schools)
S5: First semester of S5 (to include first semester exams at host school)
Students must provide a motivation letter and the school also sends a report
Subjects studied in Manosque must be continued at host school
Parents pay all travel costs and costs associated with exchange (lunches, transport, books, etc)
Host families are normally arranged via the parents associations.
Based on previous experiences, EIPACA will not accept that two students of the same class go to the same European School at the same time. In case of “conflict”, the board will arbitrate in all fairness and transparency with the families.
Each Host School nominates a Mentor (S4 and/or S5 Form Teacher) and a Contact Person.
As all of the mobility/exchange applications for the next school year need to be totally processed (i.e. Host schools and Host families found) by the end of February , the application deadline is 31st January.
For the exchange in S5 – it must be a school that offers exactly the same courses and options as the first semester will be spent there and the second semester here.
The application form must be completed and returned as part of your application. The applications will be discussed with the Director and pedagogical team before we will make a request to the host school.
Please note that we will not take any application after the 31st January deadline, nor incomplete applications.
When the exchange is confirmed, we will be asked you to fill in a Health Form for your child, a Crisis Contact List, and a Parent Guardian Consent Form, as well as the paperwork required by the Hosting school.
