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.

To prepare for the entry exam, we strongly encourage students to attend our FREE English Academy.

Academic English and Study Skills

Academic English and Study Skills classes are a compulsory part of studies at IBC-M and are conducted by a teacher who is a native speaker.

The course is practical, interactive, and places emphasis on writing in English for academic purposes, as well as developing the study and critical thinking skills needed to succeed at IBCM and beyond.

  • Interactive and practical classes
  • Lessons focused on your academic needs
  • The opportunity to work on assessed academic work in a guided environment
  • Course content tailored to the IBCM study programmes
  • Comprehensive guidance on assignment writing
  • One-on-one support when necessary
  • Workshops focusing on specific skills or problem areas
  • Support in preparing for exams and exam technique
    Certificates of participation are provided at the end of each unit, for students who attend and participate in class.
