Teaching and Learning in English at IBCM

All programmes are delivered in English at IBCM. This means that all your lessons, books, and communication are in the English language.

We recommend that IBCM students are at least intermediate (B1 level) in English. You do not need be certified, but you will need to pass the IBCM English entry exam. You will also have to pass an interview in the English language.
