Why is IB Diploma at Northbridge the right pathway before university?

Most of our students at Northbridge International School Cambodia have ambitions for moving abroad following IB Diploma to study at university. Every year these graduates follow in the footsteps of our alumni who have attended some of the world’s best universities and whose success stories are inspiring proof of the exciting pathways which await them. We have prepared hundreds of past students for the transition from school to university, and have long perfected the recipe for ensuring them the best future international pathway. So, what’s key to setting them up for success?

Internationally recognised qualifications

At Northbridge, we teach our students the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). Unlike some which focus on A Levels, we favour the IBDP for its worldwide prestige and the international pathways it opens up for our students. Popular university destinations, like the UK for example, will notice the IBDP in university applications and recognise it as a particularly competitive qualification. Why is this?

First and foremost, it is a qualification known for preparing students far better for university study than any other. The IBDP is specifically designed so that its core elements mimic the way university students study their degree. Through tasks like the extended essay, for example, students practice skills like independent research, thinking laterally and creatively, and exploring subjects so that they shape their own opinions.

Studying the IBDP results in students who do not simply repeat what they have been told and memorise answers for their exams, they thoroughly understand what it means, why it is important and how their learnings fit within a global context. 

Nord Anglia global connections

The right qualification and a stand-out university application is one important element on the journey to university, but equally as important is our role in educating students about where they could study and what it will be like.

Our aim for every student is for them to leave our school with well placed expectations and their questions around their university destination answered. The global Nord Anglia family they are part of is crucial to this.

Being involved in our global community of schools gives students the opportunity to access local support in the country of their university of choice. Our students have attended universities from Manchester and Warwick in the UK, to Caltech and University of Pennslyvania in America.

In these countries and in a further 28, we have staff and alumni who work there and have attended university there. This wealth of knowledge is a valuable resource for students. Elsewhere, a student's best understanding of their future university abroad may be its website. At Northbridge International School Cambodia we can connect students with experienced individuals who can bring the university destination to life.
