Which curriculum

My son is 15years and would like to help him to choose his curriculum.
I have no idea which one is better for his future.
He is Korean and he wanted to go abroad to study. We live in abu dhabi.
Since there are two kinds of curriculum we have to choose.
Which is better for him A-level or IB.
I guess A-level is more helpful for British. Am I right?
He likes math, visual art, and science.
Thank you.

http://whichschooladvisor.com/guides/which-curriculum/ib-alevel-difference-student/ and http://whichschooladvisor.com/guides/international-baccalaureate-vs-level-whats-best/ are two articles written specifically to help parents understand the differences and to try to understand which is likely to be the better choice for their children.

Fundamentally, your decision will be based on your son’s own interests, abilities, ambitions and the countries where you are likely to send him to study after school.   Whilst A Level is generally viewed as a qualification suited to the UK, it is also widely accepted all over the world. There is no doubt that the IB Diploma has gained enormous ground and respect globally among universities in recent years and is viewed as being more a rounded, perhaps more rigorous and also more demanding curriculum, but this is also very dependent on the student.

Hopefully the articles for which I have provided the links will help you and your son in your decision-making.
