SUMMER COURSES IN HONG KONG

ITS continues to provide high-quality one-to-one tuition for students studying for IGCSEs, HKDSE, IB Diploma and A-levels at schools in Hong Kong or overseas throughout the summer months. However, we also offer some extremely useful summer courses.

For 2020, these are more important than ever. Top level educators agree that the loss of exams has a massive impact on learning.

"It is only when students revise subjects that the deep learning, understanding and connections are made. Up to half of the value of a….course takes place in the final two months of revision and sitting the exams."

Anthony SeldonVice Chancellor, University of Buckingham writing in Times Higher Education


Pre - IB Course

The Pre-IB course gives students a head start before starting the Diploma in Year 12. It provides a framework on how to study subject choices effectively and to understand what the Extended Essay is. This encourages all IB students to start early with their planning so they do not get overwhelmed during the first term of studies. Our expert teachers and IB examiners will provide insight on how an IB lesson is normally taught.

Why take our IB course?

Pre-Uni Courses

The long summer between the end of school and start of summer is a great time to combine relaxing, a sense of freedom, some work experience, some travel and so on. But there is the time, especially once you have results from examinations, when you have to seriously get back into the swing of study and look forward to university. One of the biggest differences as you hit uni is that there is a lot less hand-holding. You take far more responsibility for your learning than at school. These courses are an ideal way to get back into the study frame of mind and also begin covering the kind of content you’re going to need. Get a head start.
