PLEASE NOTE: Due to the continued unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic our Spring IB Exam Revision Programme 2022 will run both as ON-SITE “face-to face” IB Revision Course in Vienna (with Plan B online), as well as our highly interactive ONLINE revision course. Our online IB revision workshops will be led by the same superb longstanding IBWISE faculty as our on-campus workshops and we are extremely proud to say that we received top scores on our reviews from our large international  2020 and 2021 Virtual IB student cohorts.

IB Online Revision sessions will also run for 2.5 days per IB subject. Like in 2020 and 2021, we will do our best to accommodate different timezones as possible, including Europe, Africa, Middle East & Asia.

Quote from two of our online – IB revision course participants: “This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, IBWISE had to switch to online IB revision workshops. It worked out great even though I didn’t get to meet my teachers face-to-face! My advice to IB students is to not be intimidated by “online” as IBWISE has it completely down!”

“This was the perfect course for me. I think the teacher helped me raise my grade with at least 2 points. And, what I loved about the course was the non stop encouragement and support provided by my teacher.” Charlotte, Dubai.

INSURANCE
Students MUST have full medical insurance – proof of which will be required at the beginning of the course. Holiday insurance to cover against loss of personal items is a sensible precaution. Insurance against late cancellation due to illness etc. should also allow you to claim for a refund of course fees, if necessary.

VISAS
Having the relevant travel documents is important. You can visit the website at https://www.bmeia.gv.at to obtain details of visa requirements. EU citizens do not require a visa.

If you are not sure whether you require a visa, please contact your consulate.

COVID – PRECAUTIONS ON CAMPUS (this section will be updated regularly)

  1. To ensure maximum safety during our camp, all students who join us will preferably be vaccinated and have an official negative antigen or PCR test result that is not older than 72 hours at arrival on our campus.
  2. All students will be monitored carefully (eg. regular temperature checks) while with us in Vienna and may also be expected to test at least a 2nd or 3rd time while with us (at their own expense).
  3. Social distancing and hygiene (regular washing and disinfecting of hands) plus the wearing of face masks while indoors will likely still be the golden standard in Austria next summer. Students are therefore asked to bring their personal supplies along to our camp.
  4. Rooms and en-suite bathrooms will be cleaned and disinfected by staff daily. Towels will be exchanged daily, bedlinen once a week.
  5. Our ask: we need all students’ support to be safe while together and appreciate your all commitment!
