IB Diploma Programme

The British International School Hanoi has been authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme since August 2016.

IB Student 4

The IB curriculum is one of the most highly esteemed university preparation courses in the world, and is widely recognised by top universities across the globe, some of which will even offer credit for successfully completed IB courses. Achieving the IB Diploma is a valuable asset for any student as it demonstrates the ability to succeed academically and personally even in a rigorous and challenging programme, and is a particularly effective method of preparation for the demands of university study.

Elements of the IB Diploma Programme

To complete the programme and receive the International Baccalaureate Diploma, students choose subjects from six subject areas, studying at least three (but no more than four) at higher level and the rest at standard level. The subjects are chosen from the following areas:

•    Language and literature
•    Second language
•    Individuals and societies
•    Sciences
•    Mathematics and computer science
•    The arts

In addition, they must complete three core elements:

•    The Theory of Knowledge course, which teaches students to think critically about the nature of knowledge and the "facts" we believe to be true.
•    The extended essay, which is a 4,000-word paper based on research done independently by the student in an area related to one of their courses of study.
•    Creativity, activity, service (CAS), which involves extracurricular projects or activities with a defined goal that reflect each of these qualities.
