Senior School: Pre-University

Class of 2023 throwing their graduation caps in front of the JIS Arts Centre


The final two years of Jerudong International School, Years 12 and 13, are the pre-University years.  JIS offers students a choice between three pathways to enable them to reach the University of their choice, depending on their interests and future career plans. 

IB Diploma

Students can study for the 2 year International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.

A Levels

Alternatively, students can study the 2 year Advanced Level General Certificate of Education programme (A Level).

Both programmes offer students a wide range of subject choices taught by an outstanding team of highly qualified academic staff. Our aim is to give students the best possible preparation in order to allow them access to programmes of study at the world’s leading universities. Throughout these two Pre-University programmes, we strive to provide every student with the self confidence to take on each challenge they face, and with the right tools to enable them to find the solution.

International BTEC Creative Media

Since August 2022, Jerudong International School now offers the 2 year BTEC International Level 3 Creative Media Extended Diploma course from Pearson. This course will include film-making, sound recording, publishing and web design.  It is 100% internally assessed by the JIS Academic Team.
