Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in The Udine International School.
The Udine International School is now in its 20th year of leading the way in delivering a world class International Education in the Udine area. The school was created in 2003 through a joint initiative with founding partner, The International School of Trieste, which is responsible for issuing diplomas fully and legally recognized by Italian law (art. 10, comma 3, della Legge 29 gennaio 1986, no. 26) specifically designed for the school. Having opened our doors with 100 students, we now cater to about 250 boys and girls across the full range of classes from two years of age through to High School.

What makes us different
The International Education Systems group (IES) promotes the development of young people who will have the capacity to contribute proactively to the ongoing work towards a better world. Through dynamic programmes, IES will strive to develop leaders for the future who are collaborative, communicative, enquiring, respectful and creative individuals with a passion for lifelong learning.
Through the development of projects, activities, games, portfolios and learning strategies that help our students develop interpersonal skills of communication and group work, such as constructive dialogue, active listening and negotiation, appreciation of diversity, personal responsibility, commitment and supportive relationships.
We prepare our students for the Cambridge ESOL B2 First Certificate (English), DELE A2 (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) and the GERMAN – KID A2 (Zertifikat Kompetenz in Deutsch) international exams. Multilingualism provides educational, cognitive and sociocultural benefits for those students who achieve fluency in more than one language.
Our students have unique opportunities to participate in international activities organized by the Institution, where students from all its schools come together. Interrelation and cultural exchange are fundamental objectives of these annual activities that take place at the headquarters of one of the SEK schools.
