Within three years, the International School OWL leads students to the German Baccalaureate. This qualification was developed by the school in cooperation with Pearson (the world’s largest education provider), and is based on the International A-Level. However with additional specialist content and intensive German language courses, it has many advantages for further studies in bachelor and master courses in Germany and other countries.
Classes are held in English. German language skills are not necessary.
In the first grade – the introductory year – the subjects German, English and mathematics are taught to all students.
In the second and third grades – the so-called qualification phase – instruction is given in the chosen specialist field (technical / scientific or business / economic). The core subjects continue to be German and English and they have a large number of teaching hours each week.
Our educational sylabus offers includes language courses in German and English. Therefore, the degree is recognized by universities in Germany as well as worldwide! Through close cooperation with the University of Paderborn, we can help our students to find and start their chosen courses, if they wish.
