Oxford International College
Oxford International College is proud to have been at the forefront of developing international education in mainland China since 2008. To date we have established two new schools in Changzhou and Chengdu in partnership with BE Education Ltd, a British-run company and one of China's leading education and school management organisationswhich specialises in preparing students for entry into top-ranking schools such as Eton College and Westminster College. Further schools across China are being planned for the future.
Our schools are a new generation of international boarding school open to Chinese and foreign pupils and offering a full British curriculum. By pioneering a new and distinct approach to education in China, our schools aim to develop and increase students' confidence, academic and leadership skills, as well as widen their cultural experience by delivering a first-class British education, and offering foreign exchange opportunities. Our campuses offer excellent learning and sports facilities and a range of high quality, secure on-campus accommodation with an abundance of green spaces for recreation. Most of our pupils are Chinese nationals seeking entry to UK, US and other English-speaking universities. Our schools are registered as international examination centres for Edexcel and CIE, the two major examination boards in the United Kingdom.
Oxford International College of Chengdu is located in the capital of Sichuan province in southwest China and was established in collaboration with the Chengdu City Education Authorities and the Chenghua, Chengdu Government. The school is intended to prepare Chinese students to study abroad and uses the BritishA-Level national curriculum to prepare students for university in English-speaking countries. It offers IGCSE and A-Level qualifications to Chinese pupils age 14 to 18 who are planning to study abroad at top-ranking universities such as the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. In 2012 the school moved into brand new, purpose-built premises with full boarding facilities for over 400 pupils.
Oxford International College of Changzhou is located in the southern part of the Jiangsu Province, 1 hour by train from Shanghai, and receives strong support from the Wujin government. The school is open to both Chinese and foreign pupils ages 4–18. Both the primary and secondary school offer the British national curriculum. The secondary school offers students IGCSE and A-Level qualifications, which are required for entrance into the best universities in the world, including the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. A new campus is currently underway to be completed in 2014 and will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 students.
There are plans to establish a new Oxford International College in Zhengzhou. The British international curriculum will run parallel with the Chinese national curriculum. At the primary level (age 4– 11), students will be taught in both English and Chinese to create fully bilingual students. An official date for the school’s opening has not been set.
