The world is changing rapidly. It is important for young generations to gain the skills and knowledge that can help them be successful in the globalized world where we live. This presentation will introduce the concept of international education. It will highlight the main defining characteristics of an IB education and will explore the main advantages for students who enjoy this type of learning. An international education is not only for those who want to travel the world, or want to learn languages; it is for anybody who wants to enjoy a rigorous academic programme that helps learners to think critically, learn by experience and consider multiple perspectives.
