For foreigners and Danes interested in studying and working internationally
Accept the challenge!
The International Baccalaureate develops inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Students from across the world become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The IB is recognised and respected globally by the world’s leading universities, and there are 4500 IB schools in 150 countries. We teach with a strong emphasis on critical thinking, and the challenging academic standards and rigorous assessment allow our students to join universities across the world.
Become a world citizen…
Our IB students become knowledgeable thinkers and inquirers, risk-takers and strong communicators, balanced, principled and reflective, open-minded and caring - IB is your next step in developing skills as a lifelong learner, expanding opportunities for international studies and becoming a true world citizen.
We have students from 25 countries, so if you want to experience a truly international and engaging study environment, making friends from across the world, while accepting academic challenges in subjects you have chosen yourself, you must join the IB.
The IB Diploma Programme
In the two-year IB Diploma Programme (corresponding to the second and third year of the Danish Gymnasium), you can choose your own subjects. You develop academic skills through the Extended Essay, a 4000-word independent piece of research, and Theory of Knowledge, where students reflect on the nature of knowledge. You engage in Creativity, Activity and Service, sending you on journeys of self-discovery.
You can join this programme directly, if you have completed our Pre-IB programme or one year of the Danish Gymnasium. Most examinations are written, and in English. Exam rules are set by the International Baccalaureate Organisation to ensure fair and equal treatment of students around the world (see www.ibo.org). Read more about the IB Diploma Programme here.
The Pre-IB Programme
The Pre-IB Programme is a one-year preparatory course (corresponding to the first year of the Danish Gymnasium), taught in English, which prepares you for the IB Diploma Programme. Our Pre-IB Programme is aimed at both Danish and foreign students who still need one year of schooling before entering the IB Diploma Programme.
Danish students from 9th or 10th grade have to complete the Pre-IB Programme to gain access to the IB Diploma Programme. Danish speaking students, who change their mind about continuing in the IB Diploma Programme, can transfer into the second year of the Danish Gymnasium (2.g stx), although we guarantee that we have room at Nyborg Gymnasium.
Foreign students may be able to skip the Pre-IB Programme, if they are eligible to start the IB Diploma Programme in their home country. Read more about the Pre-IB Programme here.
Tuition and expenses
Tuition is free, but a laptop, a specific calculator and payment for the study trip in the first year of the IB Diploma Programme is required.
How to apply
The application deadline for both the Pre-IB Programme, the IB Diploma Programme and the Boarding school is 1 March - late applications are subject to availability. Find the application forms here.
