APPROACHES TO TEACHING
Our teachers demystify the IB. Through subject-specific study, you learn the terminology, structure, and expected standard of their chosen subject. Interactive classes and seminars introduce you to the ‘DP Core’ - the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge, Creativity Activity and Service.
Across the week, you are introduced to the skills and fundamental concepts that will underpin your next two years of study. You will then move up to more complex topics based on the needs of each class. Understanding is nurtured and assessed through classroom discussion, activities, and practice.
Small class sizes allow teachers to provide individual attention, answering questions and reviewing material as required. Teachers prepare personalised reports which provide recommendations on how you can progress further.
A summer spent with OSC will be full of fun, inspiring experiences, adventures in a centre of culture and academia, and friendships formed with students from all over the world.
You will love experiencing campus life and exploring the city through a range of activities, including cultural attractions, sports, and amusement parks.
Our Welfare and Social Activity Team is available 24 hours a day to handle any issues that arise and to help you get the most out of your summer.
There’s also a unique opportunity for you to explore how the IB can support your future goals by attending the OSC University Fair.
