Prep Class International Baccalaureate

We offer a preparation course, called the Prep Class, for the IB® Diploma Programme.

This class is suitable for students aged 13 to 16 years old and provides the basics (with a focus on English and German) for entering the IB® DP Programme from grade 11.

What the Prep Class offers:

  • All courses are held in English according to the curriculum in Baden-Württemberg.
  • There is targeted preparation for the IB Diploma Programme and learning techniques can be practised. German as a foreign language is taught at different levels from beginner to advanced.
  • The courses promote an interest in global topics: To demonstrate their general knowledge of political, cultural and social issues, each candidate is interviewed in person, via Skype or telephone.
