ENJOY LIFE AT OUR CITY-CENTRE CAMPUS
Lemania College is situated in the centre of Lausanne. The campus is a vibrant place to learn and is well-connected to the city, with museums, theatres, concert venues, shops and restaurants at your doorstep. That proximity to city life rubs off on the atmosphere on campus.
Studying at Lemania Collage is about drawing inspiration from a city that’s known worldwide for creativity and research – not to mention sport, since Lausanne is famous as the Olympic capital. Just a short stroll from campus, you’ll find everything that Lausanne has to offer, from the friendly, welcoming Le Flon district, to the peaceful lakeside.
Lemania Collage is a five-minute walk from Lausanne station, making it the ideal base to explore the rest of Switzerland and the world beyond.
PROGRESS WITH FREEDOM AND SUPPORT
Here at Lemania College, our aim is to challenge our students, to push them to be passionate and motivated, to make them take responsibility for their own learning, and to give them the best chance of succeeding.
Our teaching and learning framework is the foundation of our success. It helps us motivate our students in two ways.
First, our framework focuses on effective learning – in other words, learning that gets you to your goal as quickly as possible.
Second, it clearly states what we expect of our teachers, laying the foundation for a fair and transparent assessment system.
That’s why our teaching and administration staff are constantly looking for ways to improve what they do.
OPEN DAY AND NIGHT
Lemania College boarding house is open to boys and girls aged 15 and over.
The boarding house is a quiet, comfortable place to live and study, with senior boarders from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the University of Lausanne on-hand to offer unrivalled support.
Non-boarders can join boarders for lunch, prepared in the school’s own kitchens under the guidance of our very own head chef.
Beyond study, life at our boarding house includes a packed programme of visits, excursions and sporting activities. Some activities are organised by Diploma Programme students as part of our Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) programme, which aims to foster balance and well-being among members of our community.
AN EDUCATION BUILT ON AN AMBITIOUS VISION
Lemania College is a proud member of the International Baccalaureate (IB) community.
We firmly believe that a multi-cultural experience is the best way to learn the values of mutual understanding and tolerance.
Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world.
The IB is offered by around 4,600 schools in more than 140 countries.
OPENING THE DOOR TO UNIVERSITY STUDY THE WORLD OVER
The International Baccalaureate is recognised worldwide and students who obtain the qualification can enrol at the university of their choice.
In 2013, more than 100,000 students holding the IB qualification went on to higher education courses, and this number is rising each year. In the last decade, IB students have applied to more than 5,000 higher education institutions in over 100 countries. Statistics show that students who hold the IB qualification stand a better chance of being accepted on a higher education course than their peers and obtain better results. For more information about these figures, go to: https://www.ibo.org/research/.
The Diploma Programme training consultant will help you choose your university and put together your application, based on your chosen institution’s admissions criteria.
START WITH A PREPARATORY CLASS OR GO STRAIGHT ONTO OUR DIPLOMA PROGRAMME
Lemania College offers two programmes for students aged 15 and over. Both programmes are complementary and delivered in English.
Our Preparatory Class/Pre-IB is designed for students who want to improve their abilities in English, numerical reasoning, and experimental and human sciences, while striking the right balance between academic study and social interaction. Our Preparatory Class is a one-year programme that prepares students for the Diploma Programme.
The Diploma Programme/IB1 & IB2 is a balanced yet demanding course leading to final exams. It prepares students for a successful transition to university study and beyond. It is designed with the intellectual, social, emotional and physical welfare of students in mind. The programme enjoys an outstanding reputation and is widely respected.
YOUR PROFILE IS KEY TO YOUR APPLICATION
Here at Lemania College, our admission procedure looks at potential students’ whole personality, rather than focusing purely on applicants’ academic record. This gives us a better picture of each student’s specific needs, to make sure they succeed and fulfil their ambitions once they join the school.
We only make final admission decisions once students have submitted a complete application pack. If you are still missing some documents, you will need to tell us when they will be available.
Letters of recommendation from your teachers will need to show that you are hard-working, attentive in class and capable of meeting Lemania College’s rigorous academic standards.
Our admin team is here to help you complete the admission process and, if necessary, obtain your student visa.
The school’s Admissions Committee accepts all suitably qualified applicants, without discrimination on racial, ethnic or religious grounds.
