International Education Model


Private Marmara College is a “world school”, serving its community with its world standard education, through its collaboration within the framework of educational programmes with national and international foundations and being continuously in search of the ideal. Therefore it is one of our main aims for our students to become successful individuals not only within their own communities, but also in international platforms.  In order to do so, it is not enough to raise academically successful students; Right alongside, international programmes are essential in making our students responsible world citizens, followers of world and national current affairs, life-long learners, respectful of different cultures and approaches, as well as in securing their own personal development. In order to achieve this purpose, Private Marmara College, was accredited in 2008 by the International Baccalaureate Organisation to apply such a programme and has gained “World School” status. With preparation for the Programme lasting a period of two years and a lifelong learning philosophy in mind, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme came to life. Academically motivating, a pre-university programme as well as well highly recognised internationally, the IB Diploma Programme is compatible with the National Education syllabus.

It is a process of raising students as the global citizens who carry out project in cooperation with their peers across the world and as individuals who bear international values, respect differences and recognize the interactions between the cultures.

International/intercultural education is practiced as follows: 

A)  Students are encouraged to participate in activities and exchange programmes through which they have international and intercultural interactions.

B)  The awareness of students is increased by means of preliminary studies to ensure that students are able to benefit from these activities. (The preliminary studies include the comparison of art works like books, stories, movies and paintings etc. of different cultures.)

 C)  It is ensured that the students who have abroad experiences due to participating in the projects like ASIST, AFS and ERASMUS etc. share their experiences, observations and ideas especially on similarities, differences and interactions between cultures with the whole school community.

 D) The themes like intercultural communication and interaction are emphasized in the curriculum (content of courses) and projects.
