IBWISE – IB Revision Camps take place in Vienna (Austria). Vienna is repeatedly selected as the most livable and safest city in the world. It was once passionately influenced by writers and thinkers like Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Stefan Zweig, Sigmund Freud, composers like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johann Strauss, and painters such Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele or Oskar Kokoschka.

IBWISE is lucky to have two exceptional campus locations across Vienna:

Our superbly equipped and gorgeous SPRING COURSE CAMPUS, the Springer Palace, provides for tuition and accommodation on one site. This beautiful chateau campus is located in a romantic & truly peaceful green oasis in the centre of Vienna, located next to the Imperial Summer Palace “Schönbrunn”. Morning and afternoon walks or runs in the Schönbrunn Park are therefore a fantastic option for all our students and teachers. The old city center is easily accessible, taking only 15-20 minutes via public transport.

Our beautiful and dynamic SUMMER CAMPUS, the Vienna Boarding School Am Himmelhof is located in one of Vienna’s most beautiful residential districts, with classrooms and boarding offered all under one roof. It features an on-campus soccer pitch and gym, and is located on the edge of the Lainzer Tiergarten, offering ample opportunities for sport and outdoor fun. The city center is also easily accessible, taking only 30 minutes via public transport.

We can help you online! If you are interested in online-tutorials in respect to any of your coursework, internal assessments or tests, please contact us and we will happily get back to you with a specially tailored offer!

Our Values

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” – Aristotle

At IBWISE, we pride ourselves on being able to provide world-class academic revision within a warm and caring environment. Kindness, belonging, and fun are central to everything we do.

Our chief collaborators in this are our exceptional faculty, many of whom have taught with us for years. Their deep IB experience and compassionate approach to teaching inspire our students to do their very best.

We also approach all of our work from a distinctly international perspective. Our staff, like our students, come from all over the world. We understand the experience of “third culture kids” – an experience many of our staff share – and pride ourselves on creating an environment that allows our multicultural community to feel at home.

Running through all of this is our commitment to excellence. Since its inception in 2006, IBWISE has provided a service that is exceptionally well-organized and effective. We have very high standards for our staff and our campus, and we’re proud to say that we have consistently met these standards, as is evidenced once again in our remarkable feedback statistics (99% of our summer 2023 students said they “would recommend IBWISE and its teachers in the future”).

Lastly, we are deeply connected to our home of Vienna, Austria. The safety, dynamism, and cultural richness of this city, consistently rated the most livable in the world, are assets that we embrace and integrate into all of our work.
