Study abroad after high school?

I am a high school passed student from Nepal and currently based in the Pokhara city of Nepal. I cleared my high school in 2012 and have gap of 8 years in study. In that course of time I was employed with hospitality companies. Thus want to study further with hotel management programs anywhere in Europe. But when did some of my research online they are only taking applications from students having cleared 12th grade. That's why I wane to know if there are any chances of any college accepting high school students. Thank you for your time.

Usually, you need to have finished 12 years of school and graduated from high school to study at universities abroad. If you have done this your age does not matter for most universities. However, if you have not finished 12 years of school in your home country then many schools will be off limits.

Some schools and programs, especially private colleges, might accept work experience instead of previous studies so it can be worth contacting schools you are interested in to see if you are eligible to apply if it is not clear from the info on their website.
