    Oxford Study Courses (http://www.osc-ib.com/) are probably the most renowned ones. I don't know anyone who attended though. But that might be because I can't think of anyone who could actually have afforded it.

    I'm going to take the Pre-IB Programme from 10th to 29th of July. The OSC is the best one out there. My parents don't care about the money, so they decided to send me there.

    Some of us are luckier than others, I presume... Myself, I'm working hard enough to afford my uni tuition fees. (My parents are obviously rich enough to make me disqualified for fee reductions, yet strong-willed enough not to help me pay...) Life is unfair. :p:

    Everyone apart from IB The Great: I think you should consider how much a few hours of tuition could actually help you before signing up for one of those courses. Sure enough, if you really can't motivate yourself into studying (lack of self-discipline...?!), joining such a course might indeed be a terrific idea. However, getting together with a few diligent classmates at the local library, or arranging a summer class with a (preferably successful) graduate from your school might be an equally good, but less expensive, idea...?!

    moser88: I think the prices on the website are quoted in US$ ($1500~£850), so perhaps not quite as bad as it might have seemed in the first place. (Still, an extremely well-paid job or rich parents seems to be a must.)

    You're doing undergrad studies? And how come rich parents don't pay for their children's tuition to go to university? Do they want you to be independent or what? It seems odd. :confused:

    No, I did M05 and I am waiting for exam results...

    About money matters: different cultures, sweetie. IB will teach you something about cultural awareness. I happen to live in a socialist country (Sweden). Here, parents don't pay for their children's education (directly). Instead, they pay vast amounts of taxes (~70%) and the government pays their children's education (--> no university tuition fees).

    Thus, if I want to educate myself elsewhere, I think it's quite reasonable I pay for it myself.

    I will be eligible for student loans, though. But moving to a different country and living on my own might make me indebted enough, right?!
