GREENGATES’ NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMES

What’s the difference between the international and national programmes at Greengates?

The international programme, taught fully in English, is the standard programme for most international students at Greengates, who represent over 60% of our student body. 

We offer our Mexican students, students from other Latin American countries (including Brazil), and those from Spain, Portugal, and Italy to opt into the ‘national programme’ depending on their needs. The national programme includes coursework in Spanish required by the Ministry of Education or SEP (Secretaría de Educación Pública) in humanities and social sciences as part of the Mexican national curriculum to obtain SEP credentials. These credentials are required for Mexican students, students from Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking Latin America, and those from Portugal, Spain, and Italy to prepare their transcripts for transferring schools or applying to higher education in their home countries. 

Families who do not plan to return to one of these countries, or for their children to complete higher education in their country of origin, do not need to opt into the national curriculum. 

If a student does not require SEP credentials for their future plans, and needs just a standard transcript, they should opt out of the national programme. 

We advise international families who wish to make Mexico their permanent home to enter the national programme.
