When children of expatriates cannot join local schools for objective language or curriculum reasons, companies typically provide an education allowance designed to cover international school tuition fees. Given the high costs of international schools in many locations, the education allowance can represent a significant budget for companies.
Mercer can help you assess and manage education allowances by collecting international school costs information in more than 370 cities for the following types of schools:
- International School
- American School
- English School
- French School
- German School
- Italian School
- Swedish School
- Japanese School
- Good Private School
International schools are selected based on curricula and location (within or close to expatriate areas).
Expatriate Education Cost Tables contain:
- Educational costs: annual tuition, entrance fee, refundable and non-refundable fees
- Contact information: name, address, phone number, email, and website
- Other general information about the school, such as the availability of school bus transportation, canteen, school hours, and school calendar.
Tuition fees are provided for kindergarten, primary, and secondary schools.
