The Pre-IB is a preparatory year for the IB program. (But can also be used as an exchange year). That means after Pre-IB you can either continue to IB OR return to your old school.
For Pre-IB you must have finished 9 years of school. The application procedure is the same as IB.
– Each school has its own dorm, where each student will have their own room. There are also a few shared rooms available, if you want to save money.
– The dorms are normally very close to the school.

The boarding schools’ prices usually range between Dkk 1.900-4.300/month. The price of dormitaries in some schools depends on your parents’ income.
