With a holistic approach, the program is divided into six groups – the First Language and Literature Studies Group, where students study their mother tongue, in the case of many schools in Brazil, Portuguese; The second group is the language of acquisition, where the student can choose, among other things, English, Spanish or French; A designated committee of individuals and associations with disciplines such as third history, business management, psychology or geography; Fourth, experimental science with choices between biology, physics, computer science or chemistry; Fifth group of mathematics, two methods: mathematics, analysis and approaches and mathematics, applications and explanations; The sixth group offers art, visual arts, music or theater.

IP is not only accepted as a benefit in the UK. Attendees can apply for seats at universities in more than 130 countries, including Brazil. Companies such as Fundano Catalio Vargas (FGV), Fossilted Albert Einstein and PUC Rio have access to IP scores, and no entrance exams are required. In foreign countries such as Germany, Holland, France and the UK, IP students are not required to participate in other admission processes. “IP is a great way to open the window not only to those who want to study abroad, but also to Brazilian universities”, Says Oliveira.

The trench says that these educational institutions evaluate many factors to choose their students.
