Brillantmont Winter Course

Brillantmont


The Winter Course at Brillantmont International School in Lausanne is the ideal place to spend a period abroad, following High School classes, including learning or improving French and joining excursions and ski trips in the beautiful Lake Geneva region. A week long excursion programme enables students to discover the local region, through French.

Winter Course students live on the Brillantmont campus, which is in the heart of Lausanne, a dynamic, lively city, well known for being the Olympic Capital. Lausanne is on the lakeside, overlooking the Alps and has many cinemas, excellent sports facilities, theatres, shops and cafes, which appeal to the students.

The Winter Course students live and study alongside those school year students, making friendships which last a lifetime. At all times the student's safety and security are paramount and Brillantmont's teaching and boarding staff ensure that everyone feels happy and settled in the Brillantmont family.

The Winter Course begins on Wednesday 8th January 2020 and lasts for 4.5, 5.5 or 6.5 weeks.
