E&B Offers

For Indian schools

E&B will find a partner school abroad to host your school group. The key element in the programme is “reciprocity“. What we expect from another school should be the same that we are ready to offer.

Schools abroad in the European Union are mostly “public” that is government schools (around 85%). They are all equally placed and do not have any kind of hierarchial system of “good or less good” schools. They are equally good and are equally appreciated. Schools with a vision of internationalisation are the ones, like your school, seeking an exchange programme.

E&B will find a school in the country of your choice. However it is not necessarily possible to find a partner school in the choice of your city.

We try to find a school with the same age group of students which helps in creating quick friendships.

It is mandatory for schools in the European Union to have an academic project on which they work with the partner school in order to get Govt. approvals for starting an exchange programme. Your school hence must share a similar academic project with E&B.

E&B prepares a programme itinerary based on your school’s suggestions.

This itinerary will be shared with the schools abroad for their approval/suggestions/modifications.

Kindly note that it takes several weeks before the final programme is mutually agreed upon by both the schools. Your school coordinator must remain actively involved with E&B in order to quickly finalise the programme.

If you need suggestions for programme itinerary, E&B can help you for the same.

E&B wii provide guidelines to Indian/French schools on how to fill the visa application forms.

E&B will share websites/ weblinks/online guides which will help all the participants in creating and correctly filling the visa application forms.

E&B will also provide guidelines/weblinks for the preparation of each “dossier” of visa application.

The school coordinator will have to take the visa appointment, much in advance, directly through the destination country’s visa application portal.

The school will pay the visa fee and the visa processing fee directly to the visa application centre of the destination country.

Each visa form of a student should be filled by the parent. Each form is linked to an email ID where the updates can be received.

E&B will guide the coordinator teacher on the preparation required to submit the visa applications of the group members at the visa application centres of the destination country. Physical presence of all the group members is mandatory for the submission of the forms.
