In preparing students for the future, the IB Diploma at ISS is an excellent way for international students to gain access to European and Commonwealth universities and elsewhere abroad. For students interested in American colleges or universities, an IB Diploma is favourably viewed by admissions offices and the successful completion of IB Diploma exams can lead to university course credit or advanced placement.

Recent ISS graduates have gained admission to competitive universities across the globe, including leading institutions in Canada, Germany, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Norway, Poland, Singapore, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.

Additionally, a number of students pursue “folkehøgskole,” work and ambitious volunteer opportunities abroad.

ISS is an accredited centre for university entrance examinations (e.g., ACT and SAT).
