WHAT’S GLOBAL AT
THE GLOBAL COLLEGE?

What’s in a name? Firstly, we are Global because we are an international college with a diverse community of teachers and students, and we have the gold standard regarding international academic programmes: we are the only college in the center of Madrid that offers the IB in English*. Secondly, our all-round interdisciplinary curriculum is global in the sense that it combines STEM and humanities education with skill development, preparing our students for the future. Thirdly, a truly global aspect of our college is that we see all students as well-rounded individuals, whose education should lead them to flourish not only academically, but also socially and emotionally.  

IB APPROACHES TO LEARNING

We promote international mindedness and prepare our students to have a positive impact in a global society. At The Global, therefore, we purposefully seek to achieve a diverse community with many nationalities and cultures, enriching the learning experience and fostering understanding, respect and openness. We truly believe that the IB Diploma Programme offers the best education for university life, future careers and citizenship in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.
