Pre-International Programme

The Pre-International Programme in Year 10 leads to the International Programme in Year 11 -12. It serves as preparation for the academically challenging International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP).

The approaches to teaching and learning for the IBDP are introduced to the students at this level along with fundamental academic skill and knowledge development so that students are able to commence the IP with a degree of confidence. This year also simultaneously covers the subject requirements for the Japanese national curriculum to  enable students to graduate  with  both the IB and Japanese high school diploma upon the completion of their studies.

NUCB International College is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.

*Only schools authorised by the IB Organisation can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted.
