OISC: Programmes for students retaking the IB Diploma

Published EDU-WorldWide on Sunday, September 15, 2019

OISC IB Diploma

During the Autumn and Spring terms, Oxford International Study Centre shall once again be providing support for IB Diploma students who need to retake one or more of their papers. 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, and also the Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay requirements. Students usually stay for 12 weeks, but shorter courses are also possible.

The weekly schedule consists of:

- Specialist subjects – up to four  subjects may be chosen, and students may adapt their schedule to include different subjects during their stay

- Support for the Theory of Knowledge requirement

- Individual support for the Extended Essay

- Support in the English Language for students whose first language is not English (no charge)


The emphasis is on revision and working on problem areas.

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.

Accommodation is normally with Oxford host families or in the Residence.

The programmes include advice on universities (including Oxford and Cambridge). For students considering Oxford or Cambridge Universities in their UCAS choices, we can also offer extra individual tuition for the interviews and entrance tests.

Fees are from £550 per week for tuition, and accommodation charges are £250 for a host family, and £480  per week for the Residence, with private bathrooms. Both include half board and a single room. The Residence has en suite facilities. Individual tuition is £50 per lesson with reductions for 10 or more private lessons per week.  Reductions are offered for groups of students from the same school.

OISC is a well-established college in the centre of Oxford. We have a Grade one (excellent ) accreditation by the ISI and are full members of COBIS (Council of British  International Schools),  the Swiss Group of International Schools, the European Council for International Education and of the European Council of International Schools.
