The IB Diploma

The IB Diploma Programme is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19 (G11 and 12). It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities and where students learn more than a collection of facts. Research suggests that there are many benefits to choosing the DP. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.

The DP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core.

The DP's six subject groups are: Studies in Language & Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals & Societies, Sciences, Mathematics and The Arts.

The DP core comprises of:

- the 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 Diploma Programme (DP) courses.
