What is the IB Diploma Programme?

The IB Diploma Programme is a comprehensive and challenging pre-university course that demands the best from both motivated students and teachers.  This sophisticated two-year curriculum covers a wide range of academic subjects and has stood the test of time for over half a million students in 119 countries since 1968.  IB Diploma Programme graduates are welcomed by the world's leading universities.

The Benefits of IB Diploma Programme

Universities recognize the outstanding qualities of IB Diploma Programme students.  Typically, diploma holders are ready to debate real-world issues from an international perspective and to provide leadership and support in the local and global community.  They demonstrate a capacity for in-depth study while maintaining a broad perspective of the different subject areas.  They are able to ask challenging questions but also know how to research a topic and express their opinion.
