The best way to prepare for the IB

What is the Pre-IB?

The pre-IB programme is a one-year preparatory year which bridges the gap between the Danish elementary school (folkeskole) and the IB Diploma. The pre-IB is for you if you have completed 10 years of schooling and/or if you are applying to the IB directly from the Danish ‘folkeskole’.

The pre-IB is an excellent way to prepare yourself for the IB Diploma. The programme is taught entirely in English and you’ll become part of a pre-IB class with students from across the world. You are introduced to a wide range of subjects from the Arts to Sports Science to Math to Social Science, preparing you to pick your favourite subjects in the IB DP.

You will also acquire essential skills such as essay writing, presentation skills and independent learning and planning. The pre-IB is an excellent, risk-free way to familiarize yourself with a new school system and a new
language of instruction.

Why choose the Pre-IB?

  • Improve your English skills
  • Try out a wide range of subjects to equip yourself to choose your DP subjects
  • Study in an international environment with both Danish and international students

"I’ve lived in China and Germany, so it was natural for me to choose an international education and the Pre-IB is an excellent way to prepare for the IB. So far, I like it very much. The school is very internationally oriented, and the teachers are great. They really try to include our different cultural backgrounds in class. It’s a great way to get to know other cultures and at the same time feel very included."
