British International School

Overview

At the British International School, we offer a caring and high quality education for the international and local communities of Belgrade in a secure environment on our unique campus. We have high personal and academic expectations for our students and are proud of the varied and challenging learning opportunities that are provided for them. We prepare our students for UK IGCSE, AS and A level examinations, at ages 16, 17 and 18 respectively. As a result, all of our students are provided with an education that prepares them to enter a schooling system anywhere, as well as to universities in Europe and elsewhere throughout the world.

Students from ages 12 to 14 complete a three year programme of study in an expansive range of subjects to prepare them for later years.

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) has been developed for 14 to 16 year olds. It aims to prepare students for further academic success, including progression to AS and A Level study, and equip them with skills for immediate employment. It is recognised as evidence of ability by academic institutions and employers worldwide. It gives a wide, varied and balanced programme of study, written with an international audience in mind whose first language may not be English. It provides a balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge, taking account of differing abilities through a choice between Core and Extended curriculum papers. Students are rewarded for positive achievement based on Knowledge and Understanding, Application of Knowledge and Problem Solving Skills.

At AS level, students retain an element of breadth as well as depth in their studies. At A2 level, subject choices are further refined and are used as qualification for university entrance.

As an alternative option to the British Curriculum in years 12 and 13 students can choose to follow the American-style curriculum offered by the University of Nebraska Lincoln Independent Study High School, and graduate from BIS with an accredited and internationally recognised American High School Diploma.

The University of Nebraska High School Diploma is recognised by all the American and Canadian universities, as well as by Universities in Europe, Asia, etc.

The Secondary school is committed to ensuring that each student has the best possible opportunity to achieve his or her potential.
