IBSCA Higher Education Advisors’ Conference 2019

June 13 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

We are delighted to invite you to the IBSCA Higher Education Advisors’ Conference which will take place on Thursday 13th June 2019 at King’s College, London.

The sixth annual IBSCA Higher Education Advisors’ Conference takes place on Thursday 13th June at King’s College, London. We are delighted that King’s College is our host this year as the University is a long standing supporter of IB education and has the highest number of IB undergraduates in the UK. We are collaborating with the university to develop an exciting programme of seminars to support HE counsellors, DP and CP Co-ordinators and other teachers advising students on their university options.

The conference will update delegates on a number of developments in UK HEI, specifically focusing on those impacting on the admission of IB students both from the UK and abroad. Although King’s are hosting the conference, we are pleased that a range of UK and overseas universities will contribute to the programme to enable us to explore the options available to our students. 

The programme has contributions planned in the following areas:

  • An overview of current issues in UK HE
  • Update on IB students’ admissions to UK universities
  • Changes to IB mathematics
  • Application to Scottish universities
  • Application to high tariff universities
  • Focused sessions: law, medicine & dentistry, engineering, the CP, interdisciplinary courses, year abroad options, application to universities in the Netherlands, Canada and Spain, support for new counsellors.

Please find the draft schedule for this event here.
