Szeged IPS uses the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) along with the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), which curricula are internationally recognized educational programmes for children aged 5-11 and 11-14 years old respectively developed by Fieldwork Education. IPC is used by over 1000 schools in over 90 countries, while IMYC is implemented by over 140 schools in over 50 countries worldwide.
"Fieldwork Education has a rich history of leading innovation in international education, with our relevant, practical and research-driven approaches to designing international curriculum, accreditation, professional learning and consultancy. Our humble beginnings as an education consultancy have evolved into the modern international organisation we are today, with our family of world-leading curriculum, the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).
Our school members and accredited schools, now in over 90 countries and counting, are supported by our professional learning pathway and accreditation services to support learners and teachers around the world. All of this, past, present and future, is with our simple aim – Improving Learning.
We are passionate and dedicated to this aim, which drives everything we do for learners, teachers and schools. As we continue to grow, now part of the Nord Anglia Education family, we celebrate the diversity of our international community and look to harness the combined efforts of our learners, teachers and schools around the world to collaborate towards our aim – Improving Learning – together."

The aim of the IPC program is to develop each student’s intellectual potential to its fullest with the help of an innovative methodology that approaches teaching through topics (units) rather than subjects, with the exception of core subjects such as Maths and Languages. Looking at this vast range of topics through the multiple lenses of Geography, Science, History, Music and Art, IPC teaches children not what to think, but rather how to think, developing their highly transferable skills such as critical and innovative thinking, team work as well as international mindedness.
The IMYC program is a concept-focused curriculum, which allows for single subject teaching and learning while facilitating collaboration between the different academic subjects, linking all subject learning to a conceptual theme such as structures, discovery or creativity. With specific subject and personal learning goals similar to IPC, the IMYC curriculum also helps students connect their learning to concepts while developing knowledge, skills and understanding.
