Our online Pre-IB courses are designed to give you the best possible start as you embark on the first year of your IB Diploma. We’ve hand-picked our expert IB teachers will build your knowledge and boost your confidence.
Covering what’s needed to begin the IB Diploma Programme
Taught by leading IB teachers, you will develop confidence in your mathematical understanding and skills prior to beginning either Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches (A&A) or Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation (A&I). For our English course, you will develop confidence in producing the level of written work expected in IB Diploma subjects, Theory of Knowledge (ToK), CAS and the Extended Essay, plus effective note-taking and daily revision strategies to cope with the challenging Diploma Programme.
Our introductory subject courses are for students who want a head start on their IBDP subjects. Taught by expert IB teachers, the course components include practice with the methodology and terminology of the subject at DP level, along with the areas of study in the course, plus Internal Assessment and examination requirements.

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’ve just completed the first year of my IBDP, can I still attend?
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 Pre-IB course.
Please note, all classes are taught in GMT (London time) hours so please take that into consideration when registering.
Who are the OSC teachers?
All of our teachers go through a strict and thorough recruitment process, and we provide training and support for them for every OSC course.
I would like to sign up for two subjects. How long will the course be?
Each course delivers 12.5 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.
