Teaching and Learning in English at IBC-M
All programmes are delivered in English at IBC-M. This means that all your lessons, books, and communication are in the English language.
We recommend that IBC-M students are at least intermediate (B1 level) in English. You do not need to be certified, but you will need to pass the IBC-M English entry exam. You will also have to pass an interview in the English language.
