The course is recognised and welcomed by all universities in Britain and most universities in the world and prepares you for all courses, depending on your choice of subjects. Are there any additional costs? There are some costs of materials and resources. What do our students think? "The IB means you study a wide range of subjects which keeps you on your toes. I love how the IB is so close knit, you get great one on one with tutors because class sizes are small. We went to France and worked in a primary school teaching them English which was good. There are lots of opportunities after studying the IB and my advice would be to keep on top of your work and if you like a challenge, go for it - it's a great course." Robbie "My favourite part of the IB has been the people - we all get on so well. The classes tend to be fairly small so you get to know the people in your class really well, and you get to know the teachers well too so they then understand how you learn, which means you can learn better in classes because they can adapt the way they teach. The reason I did the IB is because I couldn’t narrow down all the things I wanted to study, it keeps you really broad…if I change my mind and decide I don’t want to study physics in future and instead want to do English at university I could. The IB is so broad and employers love it – especially the fact you have English and maths to a higher level.” Susanna This further education course is free for all 16-18 year olds who are resident in the UK and the European Economic Area for the last 3 years. (You must be under 19 on 31st August in the calendar year that you start your course). [-]
