Students create their own schedule from a curriculum with more than 30 different subjects, even the spare time at IPC is a platform for learning as we believe that eating, laughing, and living with people from different cultures is a unique way of reaching international competence. The education at IPC is structured but it does not involve any exams or grades. The motivation to learn must come from within and should be based on personal interest and responsibility. The general belief at IPC is that it is important to have fun in order to learn effectively!
All classes are taught in English and have both global and regional focus through personal development, professional skills, communication, and creativity. Learning at IPC is meant to challenge, stimulate, and educate you – not only will you discover what you are good at but also what makes you happy. You learn how to use your unique skills in the best way possible. At IPC we believe that knowledge is many things and that it is acquired in many different ways. This is reflected in the offering of a vide selection of classes ranging from having an academic focus to a practical one. Every student must reach a minimum of 28 lessons a week – but trust us, the biggest problem will be which ones to eliminate.
We have divided our classes into three categories defined by the content and overall aim of the subject: Global Challenges, Global Life & Living, and Global Tools 4 Change. You do not have to choose all subjects from one category or a specific number of subjects from a given category – you are totally free to pick and choose! The subjects vary according to the current teachers and the wishes of the students. Get an overall overview here:
