Based in one of Cambridge University’s colleges, our course is built around a mid-way review of IB Diploma subjects to help you fill any gaps you have in your learning and build confidence in advance of your final year.

Our expert IB teachers from top IB World Schools will work with you to build upon the hard work you have already achieved and get you ready to work towards successful completion of your IB Diploma.

You will gain independent thinking, the ability to collaborate and communicate with your peers from different cultural backgrounds, and acquire leadership skills, essential for life after school. You will take the first steps towards defining a career path.
