      IB Parent Evening & UK University Applications, Singapore

      A workshop designed for parents with children who started the first or the second year of the IB Diploma Programme this autumn or whose children are considering the IB Diploma Programme for their final two years of school. A perfect opportunity for those new to the International Baccalaureate. Please note that this workshop is designed for parents, rather than students, in order to create an atmosphere of openness and honest dialogue between parents. At EIB Education, we have helped support over 4,000 IB students and families around the world to navigate the International Baccalaureate- an immensely rewarding but admittedly at times also a confusing place to be! The seminar will cover a variety of topics, including: Transitioning from IGCSE, MYP or a national curriculum Supporting multiple IB children simultaneously IB subject selection, balancing academic strengths with university ambition Motivational techniques Understanding key IB deadlines Understanding internal assessments Where you can go for IB advice and resources Creating a supportive environment As IB graduates turned IB educators, we are lucky enough to have experienced both sides of the programme, and in our interactions with parents over the years, we have listened to and answered an enormous variety of questions, undertaking research to ensure we are prepared to answer virtually any IB-related query. At each seminar, we will provide a selection of useful resources including our own IB Guide, designed both for students and parents, and welcome any queries you may have about how best to provide support during your child’s IB studies. We will also provide an overview of the crucial information in using the IB diploma it to your advantage in applying to UK universities. With recent changes to the UCAS weighting system, and modifications to UCAS deadlines in some subjects for 2019, it is imperative that students are well versed on UCAS - but dependable information for IB students is not always easy to come by. Through our work, we have supported students at each stage of their IB journey from the early years of the MYP (Middle Years Programme, ages 11-16), through the full Diploma Programme (16-19) and, in some cases, to resitting final IB exams. As such, our expertise is focused not around one particular age group, but on one educational outlook, and we aim to provide all encompassing IB support throughout a student’s IB studies, guiding and supporting, rather than dictating or instructing, at all times. We draw on our experiences supporting families who have put several children through the IB programme to those who come to the IB with no prior knowledge or experience, and everything in between.
