Why IB academy

Confident in
Every Situation

Every student has a different story. Some struggle due to a teacher’s absence, for personal reasons or from the stress of wanting to enter the university of their choice. Our programme not only enhances their knowledge of IB topics, but builds their confidence. Entering university can be scary, but our teachers will provide first hand accounts to help them along the way.


We want every process to be stress-free for you. Joining our courses is very simple and our staff are always there to answer any enquiries.


All of our teachers are enthusiastic and committed to creating the best possible learning experience for your children. Not only did they master the IB programme in recent years, but we have trained them to combine conventional teaching methods with new ones. We selected them not only for their knowledge of IB subjects, but also for their kind and engaging personalities.

Heart of the country


Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands. It is located in the centre and is well connected to other major cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Utrecht’s ancient city centre features many historic buildings and structures, several dating as far back as the High Middle Ages. Utrecht was the most important city in the Netherlands until the Dutch Golden Age, when it was succeeded by Amsterdam as the country’s cultural centre and most populous city.

The city of Utrecht is host to Utrecht University, the largest university in the Netherlands, as well as several other institutes for higher education. IB.Academy was founded at University College Utrecht, the international honours college of Utrecht University.
