A Broad General Education
At college level, students enjoy a general education that is both broad and deep. Our main priority is to enable them to understand their natural, technical and cultural surroundings in Brazil as well as on an international level.
Computer Skills and Language Certificates
In addition to gaining the ability to participate in multilingual classes in a natural way, our students also acquire solid and hands-on computer skills. Furthermore, students have the opportunity to earn language certificates in English, French and German.
National and International Diploma
Our students graduate from the bilingual college with the Brazilian college degree. With that diploma they are well prepared to pass the entry tests for the Brazilian universities.
However, as a recognised IB World School, we also offer them the opportunity to simultaneously obtain the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. During their final two years in college, students follow an integrated programme that prepares them for both sets of exams. With this dual qualification, they are equally prepared for taking up their studies at Brazilian or international universities. The academically challenging combination of preparation for the entry tests of the Brazilian universities and IB Diploma is only offered at a handful of Brazilian schools, making it one of the distinct benefits of studying at SIS.
International Baccalaureate (IB)
The IB programme is the ideal preparation for university studies abroad. Individual subjects are enhanced with teaching and learning methods commonly used at university undergraduate level.
Some subjects are taught exclusively in English with corresponding English material. This allows students excellent preparation for the IB exams, which are only conducted in English.
