What Are the Most Popular Educational Curricula for UHNW Families Embracing Global Education?

The IB, IGCSE, and the curricula of the US and UK are the education systems most frequently inquired about by Ultra-High-Net-Worth (UHNW) families.

The world is more interconnected than ever, and Ultra-High-Net-Worth (UHNW) families are setting their sights on education systems that offer more than just traditional learning.

UHNW families often prioritise education curricula that offer flexibility, high academic standards, and global recognition. These families typically look for curricula that can accommodate a mobile lifestyle while ensuring their children receive an education that allows for seamless transitions between schools in different countries.

As a world leader in bespoke private tuition, we're often asked for advice about globally recognised education curricula. Here are those we're asked about most often:

  • International Baccalaureate (IB) Program: The IB program is renowned for its rigorous academic standards and holistic approach, emphasising critical thinking, intercultural understanding, and global mindedness. It offers programs for children aged 3 to 19, making it a comprehensive option for families seeking a consistent educational framework through all stages of schooling.
  • British Curriculum (GCSE and A-Levels): This curriculum is well-respected worldwide and offers a clear, linear pathway from the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) to Advanced Levels (A-Levels). It is known for its depth of study in a relatively narrow range of subjects, which is often seen as an advantage for students focusing on specialised areas of interest.
  • American Curriculum: The American curriculum, including Advanced Placement (AP) courses, is valued for its flexibility and wide acceptance at US colleges and universities. It's designed to offer a broad education that encourages a diverse set of skills and extracurricular achievements, making it suitable for students with a wide range of interests and aspirations.
  • International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE): The IGCSE is a globally recognised qualification offered by Cambridge Assessment International Education and other examination boards. It provides a flexible curriculum with a variety of subjects, catering to students with diverse interests and preparing them for further academic success.

The Private Tutoring Advantage

We recognise the limitations of traditional schooling in meeting the dynamic needs of UHNW families, and provide a flexible alternative through private home tutoring. This approach allows for a personalised education that adapts to the family's lifestyle, values, and the child's learning style, making education an immersive, engaging, and enriching experience.

Curriculum choices are aligned with the family's values, such as social responsibility and environmental awareness, and are designed to foster cultural immersion and a deep understanding of global citizenship. Tutors are well-equipped to prepare students for the skills demanded by the world's top universities, emphasising critical thinking, cultural awareness, and social skills.
