High School Enrichment Opportunities
NIS provides real and relevant learning opportunities to fully prepare students for their future.
As part of the International Schools Partnership, we are able to offer our high school students some amazing leadership opportunities, for example:
Model United Nations
An educational simulation in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. (The most recent one NIS took part in was in Spain in 2018 – we came back with five out of the 12 top ambassador awards!)
Future Global Leaders Conference
The Future Global Leaders Conference is a debate and diplomacy conference offering students aged 13-17 the opportunity to come together to debate some of our society’s most pressing issues.
The topics of debate – such as creating an equitable education, combating climate change, redressing historical racial injustices, ensuring digital privacy, or addressing the gender pay-gap – are diverse, significant, global, and complex.
A truly international event, delegates come from five different continents, and different and diverse cultures, viewpoints and thought processes. To show our commitment to inclusion, every committee is chaired by individuals that are fluent in Arabic and French in addition to English.
Buddy Exchange Programme
The ISP Buddy Exchange Programme will enable reciprocal exchanges between ISP schools for a period of one month for students aged between 14 – 17 years of age. It is an experience that promises to offer students amazing and diverse learning opportunities within a safe and secure environment.
The programme will deliver a unique international and cultural learning experience; enabling students to develop their language skills, share good practice and cultivate long-term friendships across the world.
Other opportunities include:
- Student Ambassadors’ trips to Mexico and Europe.
- Opportunities to work with less advantaged children in Cambodia
- Exchange programs between ISP schools in Spain and the ISP school in the UK.
- Short term language immersion courses in Cambridge.
- Trips to Iceland, the United States, Egypt, France and Germany, to name a few.
Career, college, social and emotional counseling services have been significantly expanded at NIS Dubai, and we will continue to open as many doors as possible for our Grade 12 students. Through our partnerships with American University of Dubai, The Canadian University of Dubai and the University of Balamand, we ensure our students are at the forefront of scholarship opportunities in every subject.
