At OSC, we are passionate about providing support for IB Diploma Programme students and schools. Our experienced IB experts visit schools around the world delivering free, pedagogical presentations to IB students.

Every year, we visit over 200 IB schools around the world. Designed to be an extra tool to help IB Coordinators manage their cohorts, the presentations offer students different perspectives from an external, experienced IB expert.

Each presentation is interactive and covers key skills, tips, tricks and advice crucial for IB success. Parents are also invited to listen and learn, whilst one presentation has been designed specifically for parents only.
