Well, if you go to school in England you would have started your term early in September, unfortunately for those in Scotland it would have
been much earlier in August.
Private international schools on the Costa also start in early September, whereas Spanish students seem to have the longest holidays lasting until the 17th/18th September.
University for students in the UK has become a serious expense. Those who started last year will end up with a final bill of around £26,000, but those starting this September are being hit with the new fee regime and could face bills of nearly double in total. An alternative might well be to go to university in Ireland where the tuition fee is £1,760. Denmark and Norway both offer free tuition to students from within the EU, but the cost of living is much higher. The advantage is that the tuition is in English but some are significantly tougher than in Britain. Underperformers are can soon be weeded out.
Although summer is now over, there are still a couple of things on that you might like not to have missed, but you need to visit them before they close for the season: Games for Children, Charity Sardine Party & Football Tournament at the Municipal Statium in San Fernando on the 8th September from 5pm.
