Who we work with

Independent Examinations Board – International

The Independent Examinations Board-International (IEB-International) is an arm of IEB, a South African non-profit organisation and an internationally well-respected assessment Board that conducts assessment for school-leavers in the independent school sector such as the South African National Senior Certificate (NSC). IEB-International has requested Stellenbosch University to quality assure “a high-quality qualification that is internationally comparable but is Africa-centred, developed and delivered by a South African organisation” internationally. This qualification is referred to as the IEB- International Secondary Certificate (IEB-ISC). SU-UIC will be responsible for the quality assurance processes for the IEB-ISC. 

IEB-International Secondary Certificate (IEB-ISC)

The first IEB-ISC examinations will take place in October 2022. The qualification is an international qualification with its roots in Africa. Schools that offer the IEB-ISC through the IEB are independent schools, appropriately registered in their own countries, fulfilling all legal requirements which apply in the country in which they operate. Similarly, other institutions that wish to offer the IEB-ISC would be obliged to fulfil the legal requirements which apply in the country in which they operate.
