The Pre-IB Programme
A one-year programme preparing students for the IB Diploma Programme
In the one-year Pre-IB Programme (corresponding to the first year of the Danish Gymnasium), you will have a range of subjects aimed at preparing you for the IB Diploma Programme (see table below).
For the languages, the following levels are offered:
- Language A: First language (mother tongue)
- Language B: Continuation of foreign language (2-4 years of prior schooling or equivalent)
- Language ab initio: Beginners language (no prior knowledge expected)
In the application for the Pre-IB Programme, students have to indicate their level in Danish and which second foreign language they wish to study, please see the application form for the Pre-IB Programme, and contact the IB Coordinator, for further information.
Additionally, you develop academic skills through studies of general linguistics and our basic science course in the beginning of the year.
When students have completed the Pre-IB Programme, they will obtain Danish C-level certificates in chemistry, physics and visual arts.
The Pre-IB year complies with the requirements set by the Danish Ministry of Education for the first year of the Danish Gymnasium, and includes cross-disciplinary studies. Consequently, 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 in the stx programme at Nyborg Gymnasium.
At the end of Pre-IB, there are written exams in English, Mathematics, Social Science and a combined exam in Physics and Chemistry.
