Kufstein goes international – New International School Kufstein Tirol is about to start!

Highly motivated students are looking forward to the start of the school year in September 2015

Internationally oriented education is a valuable addition to the existing educational concepts and enhances promising opportunities in both education and work in a globalised world. Starting from September 14 such a high quality educational opportunity is available in Kufstein for students at the age of 14 and above from the region and beyond.

Students graduate at this independent, innovative and unique school with the Austrian Zentralmatura as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB Diploma) which can be offered after the newly established school successfully completes the accreditation process by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). The Head of School of ISK Tirol, Herbert Madl, describes the IB Diploma as follows: “The IB Diploma is an internationally recognized and standardized educational programme for ease of access to renowned colleges and universities worldwide.”

Only recently ISK Tirol has received good news from the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) located in Den Haag (NL) concerning the IB Programme that the school wants to offer in two years’ time. The extensive application for candidacy to become an “IB World School” has been accepted. International School Kufstein Tirol is therefore recognized as an IB candidate school for the Diploma Programme as of September 1, 2015. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education.

The hitherto enrolled students can expect all subjects to be taught in English, the No.1 language in business and science. Selected ISK-teachers see themselves as coaches that enhance individual support in the school’s key areas “language, science, creativity, economics and IT”.

The International School is located in new facilities equipped with modern technology directly at the Campus of the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein. This makes numerous synergies between the two educational institutions possible from which could prove to be a great learning opportunity for students.

We look forward to providing detailed information about our school at any time!
