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 programs: 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.

We promote subject knowledge and skills. Students at The Global College have excellent literacy and maths skills and receive a balanced education that combines science and humanities. This multidisciplinary approach helps students to make connections between ideas and concepts across different disciplines, enhancing their learning and understanding of complex issues. At the same time, we develop their key skills, such as communication, research, collaboration, critical thinking and self-management.
