What do we offer with the IB Diploma Programme?
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is a two-year educational programme for students aged 16-19. It is one of four educational programmes offered by the IB.
The IB DP is a challenging and comprehensive programme that seeks to develop intellectual, personal and social skills in students to prepare them for university and their future career. The programme focuses on the development of critical thinking, research, communication, and the ability to solve complex problems.
Academic structure and approach
The IB DP consists of six subjects studied over two years, including a language and literature subject, an additional language, experimental sciences, mathematics, social studies and an optional subject. In addition, students must complete three core components of the programme: Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) and Diploma work.
The IB DP has an international focus and fosters respect for other cultures and an understanding of diversity. We encourage IB DP students to be critical and reflective thinkers, and we hope they will become responsible global citizens. The programme is recognised by universities and employers around the world as a sign of academic excellence and social commitment.
