University and Beyond

Graduates of The British School of Beijing, Shunyi have an excellent track record of being offered places in outstanding universities around the world.

Students can be confident that their results will command respect around the world and open doors to universities and careers.

A characteristic strength of British based education is that all qualifications are backed by prestigious external awarding bodies, and students take pride in certificates issued by organisations such as the International Baccalaureate Organisation and the University of Cambridge.  

Taking IGCSE examinations followed by the IB Diploma is a highly regarded route to universities and colleges around the world. The IB Diploma is recognised as the most prestigious worldwide pre-university award, and its combination of breadth and depth is outstanding preparation for higher education. Our students not only succeed while they are at school, but the courses they study lay the foundations for future success at the next level too.

Our Graduate Programme is administered by experienced teachers who provide daily mentoring and guidance, inspiring our students to be the best they can be.
