Applications for our OSC Mid-IB Course have now ended.
Our online Mid-IB courses are designed to give you a head start on the final year of your IB Diploma. We’ve hand-picked some of the world’s most talented and experienced IB teachers to help you consolidate your knowledge and boost your confidence.
Helping you consolidate what you learned in the first year of the IB Diploma Programme.
With a maximum of six students in each class, our online Mid-IB courses deliver 10 hours per subject over 5 days, in morning or afternoon BST (UK time) sessions. You are able to complete 2 subjects in one week.
These courses will help you revise your first year of the IBDP. Not all schools cover the same topics in the same order, so we give you a choice:
- Monday-Thursday: The classes will cover the common topics that most IB schools teach in the first year. You will tell the teacher which areas are a priority for you through a questionnaire that you fill in before the summer course begins.
- Wednesday: You are encouraged to pop into your teacher’s Office Hour for extra help or to ask about anything specific that there isn’t time for in class.
- Friday: On the last day you can choose an additional topic to focus on.
100% Digital. 100% OSC.
Study up to four different subjects, over two weeks.
Get free access to the OSC Study app, to support you throughout your final year of your IBDP – it features thousands of practice questions, OSC revision guides, and videos in more than 10 IB Diploma subjects.
Each course delivers 10 hours of tuition, in morning or afternoon sessions split over five days.
Teachers are also available for an additional Office Hour, allowing you to drop-in and make even more of their expertise.
A pre-course questionnaire allows your teacher to tailor the course to your needs.
Set and reviewed homework for private study outside class.
Cover the fundamental topics of DP1 for the first four days, then on Friday have a session on an additional topic of your choice.
Access class notes and other valuable resources before, during and after your course.
Support staff will be on hand during the course to assist with any technical issues that you may have.

How it Works
An easy process tailored to you.
Registration and Deposit
In one go, you'll create an account, select the subjects you want to attend, and share basic information on needs and goals. To confirm your place, we'll collect a US$150 deposit.
Confirmation and Full Payment
Now we'll check whether your subject selection works in terms of timing and vacancy. We'll send a confirmation email to confirm your subjects and request full payment.
Pre-Course Questionnaire and Start
By filling out your pre-course questionnaire, you're helping us make each course as effective as possible. We're excited to welcome you shortly after, where you'll be grouped with students based on similar needs and goals.
In case you missed anything.
I’m an SL student, but the subject is only available for HL. Can I attend?
Unfortunately due to the difference in the syllabus, SL students will not be able to attend HL subjects and vice versa.
I’m an IBCP student, can I attend?
Yes, we welcome IBCP and IBDP students on our courses.
I’m just starting my IBDP, can I still attend?
Our Mid-IB courses are designed for students who have finished the first year of their IBDP, to help consolidate their subject-specific knowledge before they embark on the run up to their final exams. If you are looking to prepare for your first year of IBDP please see our Pre-IB courses.
I don’t live in Europe, can I still attend?
Absolutely! As long as you have a computer and an internet connection, you are welcome to join our Mid-IB course.
Please note, all classes are taught in BST (British Summer Time) hours so please take that into consideration when registering.
Who are the OSC teachers?
Our teachers are experienced teachers from top IB schools around the world. Most are also examiners – in our 2015 revision courses 93% were examiners for the IB.
Our teachers go through a strict and thorough recruitment process, and a mentoring programme if they are new to OSC.
I would like to sign up for two subjects. How long will the course be?
Each course delivers 10 hours of tuition taught over five days. As each subject is taught in either morning or afternoon sessions, you can study two at a time. Alternatively, you can study one in Week 1, and another in Week 2.
Can I study a subject twice during the Mid-IB course?
As long as we can guarantee a different teacher, you can study a subject twice, in the same level. This will mean that you may gain the benefit of experiencing two different approaches to the subject.
How many students are in each class?
On all our online courses,, we ensure that there is a maximum of six students per class. This allows our students to have more one-on-one time with their teachers.

Which course is right for you?
Make sure to compare the IB Exam Course with our Pre-IB and Mid-IB courses if you’re unsure which course is best for you.
