Building on the broad general knowledge studied in the IGCSE, our International A Level programme allows students to focus on their individual strengths and interests. International A Levels are worldwide the most recognized qualification for university entrance. They are so highly regarded that in the USA, good A-Level-grades often mean that students get credit and can directly enter the 2nd year of study. Students choose three to four subjects which they study in depth and with a high degree of autonomy: An ideal preparation for university study.
We offer a broad range of subjects to meet the individual interests of our students. Exam-relevant subjects are supplemented by an attractive programme of electives and extracurricular activities.
In Zurich, we offer our students the following specialist subjects (A Levels).
- Business Studies
- English (as a first language)
Further subjects, such as Italian, Russian or Portuguese are offered on request.
Our electives allow students to pursue their interests and passions without the pressure of a formal examination. Our practice-orientated project and lab days are fixed features in our programme. In addition, our student council and school magazine are spaces where our students have a voice. The student council can create student-driven initiatives, promote charitable work or make suggestions for the improvement of our school. We round off our extracurriculars with regular school field trips, culture days, cinema evenings and end-of-year parties which are co-organised by the students.
