17 Once an IB student… an IB student forever
There are 4 main things why the IB was worth doing; CAS, the fact that I could combine my own subjects and I also had a free hand regarding my topics, and that had the opportunity to study in English. Blanka Böcskei ’09 Student in Vienna Actually now that I start thinking about it, one of the many advantages is that the written works I produced back in those days and the skills I developed came in hand now that I’m a University student. Petra Nagy ‘09 Student in Budapest

18 I have a lot of great memories from the time I was an IB student… It prepared me for life, and even though it was very hard I looked at it as an exciting challenge. - Shijia Zhang ‘09 Student in Canada The IB was a unique experience it tought me a lot, it helped me obtain my internship , and to go to Australia.If I could do it all again I would definitely put much more effort into it and work more, because it really is worth it. Zsóka Montvai ‘07 Student in Budapest

19 Following completing the IB Diploma at SEK Budapest International School with 41 points, I applied to universities in the United Kingdom. I am now in my 2nd Year studying for a BSc in Politics with Economics at the University of Bath, which is one of the top higher education institutions in the UK. Having the IB Diploma has definitely enabled me to do well in my degree and provided me with excellent foundations on which to build on. Julia Lipowiecka ‘09 Student in UK
