GEMS students are accepted by some of the world's most prestigious universities
IB graduates excel at University
Recent studies on IB Diploma Program graduates in university confirm that they perform well and have significantly higher grade point averages and higher graduation rates than students who did not complete the IB Diploma Program. Scores on IB assessments are also a significant predictor of performance in university. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Program is different from other pre-university courses or assessments in that it is a comprehensive, integrated program that emphasizes international perspectives and fosters the development of skills and attributes to prepare students for university and life. http://blogs.ibo.org/ibtv/category/recognition/universities/
In the last four years, GEMS has enjoyed some of the best university acceptance rates of any international school. Our students have been accepted into 1050 universities in 53 countries. We're proud to say that includes 66 of world's top 100 universities.
These days, there's a lot more to a university education than obtaining a world class qualification alone. Here's how we prepare our students for university and the world of work:
- Development of employability skills: It's not just a degree employers look for. A GEMS student gains self-confidence, communication, initiative, team work and time management skills.
- Interest and experience in their future study courses: Have a look at how we prepare our Alumni for their university courses before they leave school.
- Improved career prospects: A higher education is a gateway to jobs in the future. Many organisations around the world employ GEMS Alumni. With tens of thousands of contacts all over the world, your child will find a connection wherever their career takes them.
- Development of personal and social skills: GEMS Core Values have been part of our DNA for over 55 years. With a GEMS education, your child will not just become a conscientious student, they'll also gain the confidence and independence to thrive at home, university and at work.
Whether we are lucky enough to teach your child for a few years or many more, the lessons they learn at GEMS will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
