The IB Diploma Programme
All around the world, the IBDP is recognised to be one of the diplomas offering the best preparation for university programs. It is intended for students aged 16-19 and aims to provide a balanced education that facilitates cultural and geographic mobility and promotes international understanding.
It is a two year course that requires students to complete studies in a variety of subject areas including languages (first and second languages), mathematics, sciences, individuals and societies (humanities) and the arts. Each subject has a coursework component and includes external assessments/examinations that are taken at the end of the 2nd year. IBDP students are also required to complete the three core components – the Theory of Knowledge course, Creativity-Activity-Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay (EE).
