Get a head-start on your IBDP studies this summer!

The IBDP can be daunting, and students often aren't aware of everything they should know, or aren't sure how to get themselves ready.

Our course comprehensively prepares you to hit the ground running for your final two years, explaining unfamiliar aspects like the Extended Essay and Internal Assessments, teaching you all the key subject knowledge you need to know from day 1, and sharing all of the revision and study tips that will give you a leg up right from the start.

EliteIB students enjoy learning

It was super great, very useful and interactive exercises. It was very helpful to have the time to work as a group after having completed a summary of a topic. I feel much more confident!

She was incredibly understanding, and worked with us when we didn't understand. She went through the syllabus before each session and explained things I previously wasn't able to understand. I enjoyed all of the workshop.

I really liked how interactive and structured the lessons were. Along with planning there were scheduled past paper questions practices at the end of each session.

My favourite thing about the course was how focused and structured it was. We didn't waste any time covering content we already knew.
