    The International Section offers three different programmes:
    * the Social Sciences Programme,
    * the Natural Sciences Programme
    * the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme

The first two programmes follow the Swedish national curriculum which is taught in English. These two programmes are based on continuous assessment and do not have a final examination. The award of grades is to be looked upon as a continuous process. Grades are awarded on the completion of every course and not for individual subjects or for each term. Grades are awarded on a four-point scale: Fail, Pass, Pass with Distinction and Pass with High Distinction.
The IB Programme is an internationally recognized curriculum and examination. This programme leads to a final examination which is marked and graded by outside examiners.

All three programmes are well recognized and accepted by universities in Sweden and in other countries around the world.
Language of instruction: English
If you are a tax payer resident in the country you will not pay any school fee and material and lunches will be provided as well.
If you are a diplomat or employed by a UN type of organization you have to pay the school fees which differ from course to course. The fees include the lunches in the school canteen.
