Minimum Age Limit

My son would like to take an English program in the US and he will turn 17 years old later this year. Can he apply to one of the schools listed on your site? Hasan


Dear Hasan,

Every school or program has a minimum age requirement for the school. Generally, the minimum age accepted is 16-18 years old. However, some programs may differ on this, so be sure to check the school profile and confirm before you apply. Also, be sure to consider the location of the school and whether the program is appropriate for your age. For example, in some cases, a school located in the middle of a big city may not be the best choice for a younger student to learn as there may be more distraction to studying. Feel free to contact one of our advisors if you require additional consulting and/or assistance.
