AIC offers committed students the opportunity to realise their potential at this level, before moving into higher education and the world of work where I truly hope they will make a difference on a local or global scale. The IB qualification equips our young men and women with excellent skills with which to engage with academic challenges of university life and the broader contribution to community and society.

We look for students to push themselves beyond the boundaries that would normally be set and we support them in their endeavors. Therefore a can do attitude is a must for a student to study the IB at AIC, as without that approach the opportunities available will be lost and potential will go to waste.

I am constantly impressed, even after 20 years in the profession, by what our students are capable of achieving. They go further, apply themselves more fully and engage with the tasks more completely than I have experienced before and it is a privilege to be able to work with them in this vibrant atmosphere.

It has established an international reputation for gaining outstanding academic results as well as for its graduates gaining acceptance at leading universities worldwide. 

 

AIC graduates find their niche through quality pathways. Ranging from studying medicine at the University of Auckland, bio-medical engineering at Harvard, biological sciences at Oxford, environmental law at Cambridge, these are just some of the AIC graduates committed to making the lives of others better through daring to believe that their dreams can come true, with a willing attitude and the support of their school.
