“Amelia was a dedicated student in both her Business Management and French courses. She developed consistent and effective work habits in the online environment, which directly contributed to her success in achieving the highest scores in her final IB examinations. She took advantage of the global classroom, participating with vigour in the class discussions and with her teachers. Well done, Amelia!”

The interview with Amelia
Why did you choose a Pamoja Online Course (POC)?
I chose Pamoja Online Courses for the opportunity to learn in a more global environment with teachers and students from all around the world – something that I felt was integral to receiving an IB education. Pamoja made it possible for me to “learn how to learn” in a truly international setting.
What and where are you studying now and how has studying with Pamoja helped with your university course?
I’m currently studying International Business at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
I think Pamoja has helped me tremendously. For starters, it provided me with a solid basis of business knowledge. Secondly, it made me confident that I can adapt to new learning environments and work with people from diverse cultures. Finally, the courses have equipped me with the knowledge to manage my time and projects effectively.
What would you say to a student thinking about doing an online course? What would your advice be?
I’d say go for it! Honestly, it was one of the best decisions I made as an IB DP student.
My biggest piece of advice for someone taking a Pamoja Online Course would be to be sure to connect with your classmates, as you will get to know so many new people from all over the world. That is what makes it a truly unique experience.
