IBID: because distance learning can be personal.

IBID offers distance learning to Dutch-speaking IB students aged 13-19, in the last five years of secondary education. In its capacity as ‘centre of expertise’, IBID also offers coaching to IB schools and IB colleagues.

IBID’s strength lies in its intensive, personal support based on a challenging programme. Our teaching staff is made up of senior teachers who each have ample experience with international education and life abroad. We keep in touch with each student on a weekly basis, mainly by email or Skype sessions. Students are coached step by step with clear instructions and targeted feedback.

From IBID’s foundation in 2000, the exam results are clear proof of the success of our approach. The average mark of our students is higher than the global average for IB Dutch A: Literature SL, despite the fact that IBID students follow the programme through distance learning.

Every student abroad has his or her own story. There is often a world of difference between students, in a literal and figurative sense. IBID has a keen eye for these differences in its support of students. It would be our pleasure to talk to you personally about the courses we provide. Please fill in the contact form and we will get in touch with you to make an appointment.
