Association des Sections Internationales Britanniques et Anglophones

ASIBA is a not-for-profit association which supports the British version of the Option Internationale du Baccalauréat (OIB), a unique bilingual and bicultural school-leaving qualification run in partnership between the French Education Ministry and Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).


Shared vision

Schools, international sections and parents’ associations involved in the teaching and running of the British international sections form the membership of ASIBA.

All members share a vision of the importance of the international sections and OIB as an essential part of international provision within French schools and as a unique example of practical educational co-operation between two countries.

A framework

The Association operates within the framework of French association law dating from 1901 and is therefore termed an “Association loi 1901″.

Much of ASIBA’s work is performed on a voluntary basis by people who are committed to the OIB and the development of international education more generally.
