Why are International fees more than UK?

CREST Awards for UK schools benefit from UK government funding, which allows us to offer Awards at a reduced price for those schools.

International schools, however, are not covered by this funding, and pay the full entry fee. In addition, CREST uses tracked delivery for postage to international schools overseas. The cost of international Awards can be viewed on our Fees and funding page.

Minimum number of Awards

For Star, SuperStar, Discovery and Bronze projects outside the UK, there is a minimum order size of ten CREST Awards. This is due to the cost of international postage. These ten students can be spread across multiple projects, so long as the minimum number of students is met or exceeded.

In the event that the certificate order for international schools are posted to a UK address, we could waive the minimum order size but the international fees will still apply. Please let us know by emailing
