The Global College is an innovative IB boarding and day school in the center of Madrid. Our highly personalized curriculum, superb career guidance, and urban campus provide an amazing pre-university experience.

 

  • We combine the IB Diploma Programme with an Entrepreneurship Project, giving students the chance to put real-world skills to the test.
  • Our strategic alliance with IE University provides powerful insights into what students need to succeed at universities across the globe.
  • Unique urban campus provides amazing pre-university experiences, along with internship and international networking opportunities.
  • Our teachers have an average of 20 years’ experience, and many are IB examiners.
  • We are committed to building a diverse student body in terms of nationalities, cultures, and backgrounds. To this end, we offer two financial aid programs: Merit-based scholarships and Means-tested grants. We encourage families who cannot afford full tuition to contact our Admissions Team even if they think they will not qualify for financial aid. Our mission is to make The Global College accessible to students with true potential and we consider your specific situation.
Q HOW DO YOU PROMOTE STUDENTS’ PERSONAL AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT?

Every student has a personal mentor from the faculty. The Global College mentoring is a sustained, daily, structured academic and pastoral framework to help guide all students through their studies, lives and to their future. Taking best practices from the top UK boarding schools, educational research and innovative classroom approaches gives the college the ability to provide targeted, personalized learning for every student.

Q WHAT ARE THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS?

Applications for The Global College will be based on a combination of analytical writing, communication skills, interviews, and school reports. Candidates will be invited to submit any other additional work or experience they consider relevant.
The personal requirements are as important: students must be ambitious. This does not just mean their grades. We want students who demonstrate a desire to become better every day; who read, reflect, engage and think. We will welcome students who want to take a place in the wider world and make a difference for and to others.

Q WHAT IS THE CAMPUS LIKE?

Our world-class campus is in the middle of one of the most desirable districts in Madrid. Open at weekends for our boarding students and those who want to use the facilities, the spaces available are geared around the student and the IB education; encouraging risk taking, inquiry and collaboration. Our classrooms, labs and creativity areas are all technologically enhanced while we dedicate a huge amount of space to co-working spaces as well as discussion and entrepreneurship hubs.

Q HOW ARE PARENTS KEPT INFORMED?

Parents will have regular information from their children’s mentors on their progress and there will be regular parent/student/teacher conferences online. We will be welcoming parents into the college. We want to work in partnership with our parent body whenever we can and hope to involve parents not just in the traditional school events, but also in our wellbeing, careers and external speakers’ programs which can be joined from anywhere on earth.

Q WHAT ARE THE EXTENDED EXPERIENCES?

These are experiences organized by the college that enhance the academic program. Through our Extended Experiences students will try new sports, visit artistic venues, complete service to the community and participate in entrepreneurial ventures: this wealth of extracurricular activities will help them grow as students and also fulfill the IB CAS requirement. We aim for Extended Experiences to provide an enjoyable learning experience, but also create opportunities for reflection and growth.

Q WHAT SUPPORT DO YOU GIVE TO STUDENTS WITH UNIVERSITY APPLICATIONS?

Preparation for this begins before students arrive. We want to know all about their ambitions and what they are doing to pursue them in the admissions process, and we will be actively keeping in touch with them before they arrive to see how these are progressing. Once in the college, their mentor will help lay out a programme of study, approach and applications for their chosen field, and will help the student all the way up to university.
