Location & Facilities

The information below relates to all our Face-to-Face workshops.

All IBSCA workshops are held at the University of Warwick . Established in 1965, the University of Warwick is in the top 100 of every major university world ranking.

The University of Warwick hosts a state-of-the-art campus where IBSCA hosts a variety of IB Professional Development courses.

The university is centrally located in England and is easily accessible by road, rail or plane.


The Warwick Conference Centre is just perfect for workshops. Bedrooms and classrooms are in the same building. The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. There are 24-hour tea and coffee stations, and a lovely social space, with a paying bar and lovely outside spaces to relax in. The food is fabulous. With everyone and working together in such a relaxed, convivial space, delegates get to know each other very easily. Three good meals a day and a drinks reception are part of the package. If you can drag yourself away from the comfort of the conference centre, you have full access to the Warwick University sport centre just next door to revive tired brains and bodies.

Each has free high-speed internet access for laptops, telephone, television, tea and coffee making facilities, towels and toiletries, iron and ironing board, hairdryer.
