During the school holidays and in the Autumn term (for those retaking papers) we shall once again be providing support for  IB Diploma Candidates. The programmes consist of individual and small group tuition (the precise mix depending on the subject choice) with experienced Oxford IB tutors. Most subjects are offered at both HL and SL.

The weekly schedule consists of:


  • Specialist subjects – up to two subjects may be chosen , and students may choose

different subjects each week of their stay;


  • Support for the Theory of Knowledge requirement


  • Individual support for the Extended Essay


For mid-IB students and those retaking papers the emphasis is on revision and working on problem areas. For pre-IB students (mainly the summer vacation) the programme provides an introduction to their chosen subjects and the learning skills demanded by the Diploma.


There are 20 lessons each week (or the equivalent of individual tuition in less frequently studied subjects). The average group size is five students. We ask students to send as much information as possible on their options and main areas of weakness.


Teaching is normally at OISC but some students may be taught in a College of the University in the summer vacation. Residence is normally with Oxford host families although the University is an alternative in the summer. There is also an optional  programme of social activities and excursions in the summer.


The programmes include regular testing, and advice on universities (including Oxford and Cambridge).


For students including Oxford or Cambridge Universities in their UCAS choices we can also offer extra individual tuition for the interviews and entrance tests.
