Pre-IB Summer Course

6th August - 11th August

Start the IB right

Give yourself the best start on the IB; learn how to pick the right subjects for you; and build your essay writing, mathematics, and presentation skills.

Taught by IB professionals

Workshops and talks at the course are delivered by experienced IB graduates - their average score is 43 - IB teachers and IB Examiners.

Flexible support

Build a course that works for you. Choose up to four IB subjects - including Maths and Sciences - and our core IB workshops.

Our Pre-IB Course is the perfect opportunity for you to prepare for the rigours and demands of the IB before beginning the programme in the autumn. For many students, the skills and academic qualities the IB expects students to demonstrate can be unfamiliar, and our Pre-IB course allows you to transition into the first year of the IB with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed from the onset. These courses also present a wonderful opportunity to meet students from other schools embarking on the same challenge as you, and a chance to discuss your subject selection with them. You’ll realise you aren't alone.
