Pre-IB Summer Course, 2019

Course Structure

29th July - 4th August 2019

The Pre-IB Course is split between core workshops and subject workshops. You can attend any combination of workshops and days, and build a course that perfectly prepares you for the IB and builds on your strengths and weaknesses.

Core Workshops

Core workshops introduce students to the novel and challenging aspects of the IB which they wont have experienced before. Core workshops are the perfect opportunity for you to get to know the IB before your first day and to get to lay the foundation for success. The programme of core workshops includes:

  • Mathematics - Get started with the IB's tricky Maths syllabus and learn how to master your calculator.
  • TOK and Extended Essay - Get to grips with the compulsory TOK and EE tasks, which add up to your bonus IB points.
  • Subject Selection - Hear from IB graduates, teachers, and Examiners about how to pick the right subjects at the right level to ensure you enjoy the IB as much as you excel in it.
  • Study Skills - The every day tricks and trips to maintain excellence every day.

Subject Workshops

With subject workshops you can begin the IB with the confidence that you already have already mastered the basics of your subject and are prepared for the common pitfalls and challenges students encounter.

  • Pick your subjects - The flexible course schedule lets you attend any combination of subject workshops, so you can build a programme that works for you.
  • Choose the right level - Workshops help you trail your subject levels, helping you choose the right level on the IB.
  • Get ahead of the curve - Our IB tutors know their subjects better than anyone else (their average score is 43), and so they’re perfectly placed to introduce you to your subjects.
