ASTUR Highschool programmes

Beside Summer Camps, Group- and Language Travel programmes, we also offer Highschool programmes in Germany. If you want to attend a regular German Highschool, ASTUR can take you there. This programme can range from 2 months to whole school year, during which you have a new (host) family and make a lot of new friends. You can even carry over your school grades from Germany back to your home school, so that you don't have to repeat a year at home.

Should you wish to not dive, but rather dip into the Highschool experience, there is always the possibility of booking your trip short-term. Through the ASTUR School Immersion, you get a one- to four-week taste of what it is like to be a German Highschool student.

School immersion in Germany
The ASTUR Short-term Highschool programme may be booked for 1 to 4 weeks. Often, students take part in a School Immersion before deciding to spend a full school year in Germany. We offer the variations "Classic", "Premium" and "Language+"
