Overseas University Opportunites in ALKEV
Our students will have the opportunity to study in German-speaking countries, especially Germany, with the different diploma options offered at our school.
GIB (Gemischtsprachiges Internationales Baccalaureate) Diploma Program
In 1986, with the joint decision of the German Government Kultusministerkonferenz (KMK) and the IB center, GIB (Gemischtsprachiges Internationales Baccalaureate), another application type of IB programs, came into force.
As of 2018-2019 academic year, GIB (Gemischtsprachiges Internationales Baccalaureate) Diploma Program has started within ALKEV Private High School.
In our school, different from the IB Diploma Program courses; at least one of the language courses, History, Chemistry and Biology courses are offered in German. The GIB Diploma Program is designed to support the intellectual, social, emotional and physical aspects of the students and is implemented in 11th and 12th grades. In addition, within the framework of the preparatory, 9th and 10th grade curricula, students’ educational experiences are expanded and preparatory work is carried out for the DP process.
The GIB diploma is a bilingual international diploma and is accepted by German-speaking higher education institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.
German Language Diplomas in German-Speaking Countries
German Language Diplomas from “Deutsches Sprachdiplom der Kultusministerkonferenz”
DSD I and DSD II are the language diplomas that certify the language proficiency of our students in German-speaking countries, especially in Germany, during their application to higher education.
Our intensive and comprehensive German curriculum, applied from Prep to 12th grade, is designed in accordance with the European language framework and includes the preparation process for DSD exams. Thanks to the German Language Diploma DSD-I and DSD-II, which we offer as ALKEV Private High School and Science High School, we provide our graduates with the opportunity to study in Germany and German-speaking countries.
Teaching English, which is the second foreign language in our school, is also of great importance. Our students will be able to take the Cambridge University Language Proficiency Exams, which are the most known in the world, and have the internationally valid KET (A2), PET (B1) and FCE (B2) certificates.
The GIB diploma is a bilingual international diploma and is accepted by German-speaking higher education institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium. At the end of the 12th grade, Diploma Program students make their applications with their diplomas directly to the departments they want to study, through our Overseas College Counseling unit, without entering the YKS exam.
