Message of President

I am delighted to welcome you to Avicenna International College (AIC) with more than 25 years of international experience in education. Today, more than any time, there is a need for a unique educational model that can meet the needs of the young generation and also satisfy the standards of international education. This important responsibility has been trusted by our colleagues at AIC. As a truly international institution, AIC enjoys the services of dedicated teachers with high values and standards of education and humanity. Through academic education and appropriate training, we have rendered ourselves to play our parts in raising the future responsible citizens of the world.

Our teaching staff is selected with care and scrutiny. AIC teachers regularly participate in “Teacher Training Courses”. At AIC, teachers and students stand on the same side and work together for the same goal. While we undertake to improve our academic standards, our students are prepared to undertake their roles in their challenging, fast-changing, technology-rich future societies.

We follow a holistic approach towards educating our students. We respect our students and consider their needs with bio-psycho-social considerations as a whole. We do not have a group of students, or classes, we have “individuals” with unique characteristics and needs. We welcome our students and try to know them individually. Our teaching and non-teaching staffs together with the students from the community of “AVICENNA”. This is the motivation that has kept us on the movement for about 30 years now.

Many of our past students are now among successful medical doctors, engineers or businessmen in Europe, United States or other countries. We are always proud and happy to hear about the success of our past students. AIC has proven to be the leading institution in Europe to prepare non-European students for medical schools. At AIC, we target a 100% success rate, no student is neglected or left behind.
At Avicenna, we place great emphasis on “problem-based learning”, “interactive education” and “critical thinking”. We will not only teach biology, chemistry, mathematics, and other subjects, we will teach our students how to learn these subjects, how and where to find answers to their questions, how to solve their problems and feel confident enough to bring their new ideas to the attention of their teachers and classmates. This is our Avicenna methodology for education. We believe that our students can and should explore their potentials and capacities. They should achieve maximum development of their competencies with the help of educators. High academic achievements, successful higher education, and preparation for undertaking independent social roles are among our goals for Avicenna students.
The curriculum at Avicenna is rigorous and widely recognized. It is designed to prepare our students for higher education in the best European and North American universities. We have extensively reviewed British, American, Canadian and European educational systems and have developed the Avicenna Educational System which guarantees the success of our students once they join any secondary school or higher educational institute.
At AIC, we provide British and international education in the heart of Budapest. Avicenna is your “Home away from Home”.
We are looking forward to having you among our students.

Warm regards,
Dr. Shahrokh MirzaHosseini
President,
Member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts

HISTORY

Avicenna International College (AIC) started its activities in 1995 by providing short courses for the medical students studying in Budapest at Semmelweis University. Later a complete one-year pre-university program was designed for those who planned to complete their studies in any medically related filed in Hungary. This course was named “Avicenna Medical Foundation Program” or AMFP. Today, those students who complete AMFP with good scores are admitted to many European universities with medical programs in English, including in Hungary, Italy, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Lituania, Latvia, UK, Serbia, and Russia among other countries.

Other foundation programs were added to the academic courses of AIC, namely Business Foundation Program (BFP), English Foundation Program (EFP), German Foundation Program (GFP), and preparatory programs for IELTS and BMAT examinations.

AIC is now an accredited educational center for NCUK in Europe outside the UK. Programs of NCUK including International Foundation Year (IFY), International Year One (IYOne), and Pre Master Program (PMP) are the qualifications that enable our students to secure admission to a UK partner university upon successful completion of a relevant NCUK program. IFY courses are offered in science, business and art streams.

AIC has also developed International High School Programs and has been accredited by the Hungarian Education Authority (OH) as a bi-lingual high school. Students can earn a Hungarian bi-lingual high school diploma called Erretsegi. This diploma is valid in the whole EU as a European degree. Our students command English at a native speaker level and learn Hungarian and German at the same time. AIC high school graduates can continue their studies in any Hungarian university in Hungarian or English.

Students can also earn their IGCSE and A-Level diploma. AIC is a recognized PEARSON and EDEXCEL center.

AIC is a Candidate IB school to provide IB Diploma Program (IBDP). AIC students can choose to complete their last two years of high school studies in the IB system and earn an internationally recognized IB diploma. From 2019 September, students can apply for Pre-IB program.

From its conception, AIC has been involved in social and cultural activities to contribute to the community and get our students and teachers involved in cultural and charity works. We have always respected the mother nature.
