Benefits of the IB Diploma

Research shows that graduates from IB programmes, when compared to other academic qualifications at the age of 16-19, generally benefit from:

  1. A better choice of university
  2. A wider breadth of subject knowledge than other pre-university programmes
  3. Advanced critical thinking and independent learning skills
  4. A healthy and globally-minded worldview

We believe that our innovative approach to education inspires each and every student to discover their strengths within a community of future leaders.

The Diploma Programme

The Diploma Programme (DP), respected by leading universities across the world, is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay.

Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service. The International Baccalaureate (IB) assesses student work as direct evidence of achievement against the stated goals of the DP courses.

Research shows that the IB Diploma develops students who:

  • Have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge
  • Flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically
  • Study at least two languages
  • Excel in traditional academic subjects
  • Explore the nature of knowledge through the programme's unique Theory of Knowledge course.

A choice of subjects

IB Diploma students follow a broad range of subjects over the two years of the programme, but can at the same time specialise in those subject areas of greatest interest to them.

Full IB Diploma candidates study six subjects, three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level, along with the additional core requirements
