The Cambridge Programme

University of Cambridge International Examinations logo

The Cambridge Programme offers an innovative international pre-university curriculum and examination system that can be tailored to students’ interests and abilities. Courses are based on an investigative approach to learning with students using initiative and creativity in solving problems.

The external assessments by Cambridge International Examinations include written examinations, project work, and individual research. Students taking advanced level courses can qualify for an Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) diploma.

To participate in the program, students must enroll each year in at least one Cambridge course and must complete a sequence of such classes in grades 9-12.
