Many Swiss Families send their children to private boarding schools, giving their children a high-quality education in a multicultural environment. Benefits of multicultural education.
Switzerland has four national languages - German, French, Italian and Romansh - and it is one of the leaders in encouraging multicultural education.
This gives students of Swiss schools a measurable advantage. Many boarding schools in Switzerland are also bilingual schools, with lessons taught in the regional language and either French, German, English or Italian. Researchers have found that children who are taught in a bilingual environment develop greater cognitive flexibility and have better social interaction skills.
The benefits of this are enormous: studies show that students who learn in culturally diverse schools develop a higher self-image and develop a stronger sense of both self and their role in society.
Although education in Italy is excellent (and also free), there are advantages to sending the child to a private boarding school. An Italian family believes , education is a privilege for their kids.
Living away from home has many advantages for Italian students. It allows them to learn life-coping skills and live in a community of peers, as well as to develop independence and self-responsibility. Boarding school students also learn study habits and self-discipline to help prepare them for college.

According to the most recent Open Doors Report of the Institute of International Education, 1,928 Ukrainian students went to the U.S. to study in 2017-2018. Ukraine is one of the most interesting countries from the Ex-Soviet to recruit students.
The most popular destinations for prospective students are the U.S., followed by Canada, the U.K, and Western Europe. When selecting a country, Ukrainians base their decisions on a country's reputation for helping a student with career preparation and the strength of a country's overall education system. When comparing schools, prospective students consider first the quality and then the cost of tuition.
There are many recruiting agents in Ukraine and numerous small agencies dominate the market. Most agents concentrate their efforts on serving students who plan to use their parent's income or personal savings to pay for their education.
