"It is now OSC’s 27th year, and looking at it today, I am so proud of what my mother and brother created in 1990, and of what the OSC “family” of IB teachers and supporters have achieved. Together we have helped tens of thousands of IB students with their studies, and OSC has become a wonderful global community of IB teachers and friends, ably coordinated by our fabulous, happy and hardworking Oxford team. The key to success has been that we care a great deal about what we do and work very hard to make it better and better each year. We always try to work with empathy, and with integrity: ensuring that students, teachers and staff feel comfortable and confident – so that they can do their best, and feel great about it."
Dr Kim Polgreen, Director
We engage world-class IB teachers from top IB schools globally, to run very high quality academic summer programmes and revision courses, in various locations around the world. Locations include Oxford, Cambridge, Sydney, Melbourne, Harvard and MIT.
"The OSC Courses are very professionally run. The level of teaching is very high (often with professors who have written the text books or have marked exams). The intense, structured environment is an ideal boost for the final revision for the IB Exams. The added value of the marvellous environment of Oxford and the chance to mingle with other students from other schools and nationalities in the evenings, makes the week fun as well as hard work. Our children returned motivated and pumped up"

We offer the largest range that covers core IB subjects and options. Our IB books focus on the key areas that will help students to achieve their best at exam time. Our authors draw on their years of IB teaching experience and the unique revision skill-set they have developed by delivering OSC courses.
Way back in 1990 we offered the first IB Revision Courses. In 1991 we offered the first IB Summer School. In 2003 we launched the first IB Revision Guide series. In 2014 we launched Smartbacc, the first online IB revision platform. We are dedicated to the IB and finding new ways to support the IB community.
