Introduction to Dulwich College International

Founded in 1619 by Edward Alleyn, a famous Elizabethan and Jacobean actor, Dulwich College has a long tradition of academic excellence and innovation. In 2003, with the formation of Dulwich College Management International (DCMI), it created a partnership to develop schools overseas and bring a Dulwich education to students around the world. Through DCMI, Dulwich College has established five Colleges for international students in Shanghai, Beijing, Suzhou, Seoul and Singapore, as well as two Dulwich International High Schools in Suzhou and in Zhuhai. The international Colleges offer an enhanced English National Curriculum leading to IGCSE and, where accredited, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The two Dulwich International High Schools offer four-year and accelerated three-year IGCSE and Alevel courses.
