University Placement

BHS educates, guides and assists students and families through the entire university search, application and admissions process. 

BHS understands that university admissions success is based on academics, passion and growth.


However, the true key is to be unique


BHS provides a unique advantage for students for university admissions because it not only offers a one-of-a-kind international experience but also is strategically one of the only international schools in Europe that offers a flexible and streamlined 100% American school curriculum including the optional American Advanced Placement (AP) program, normally only available in USA.  This is extremely helpful for BHS student applicants with a wide range of strengths and talents to demonstrate how they are unique to gain the competitive advantage over other student applicants, especially those from the European one-size-fits-all International Baccalaureate (IB) program now overly saturated in traditional international, American and British schools in Barcelona and throughout the world. 

While BHS is an international American school, the majority of BHS students choose to apply and gain acceptance to international universities in Spain, and throughout Europe, such as the UK, Netherlands and Denmark for example.

While students mainly choose to attend universities in Europe, BHS students have had great success also with university acceptances in USA:

Princeton (#1 University by U.S. News & World Report)

Parsons School of Design (#1 Fashion University by QS Top Universities)

Middlebury College (#11 Liberal Arts College by U.S. News & World Report)

Boston University (#7 University by Forbes for International Students)

Overall, our goal is to help students attend universities throughout the world that best match their interests, academic and financial profile.
