At NAS Dubai, your child will receive a personalised Sixth Form pathway, depending on their individual needs and strengths. These pathways include the IBDP, IB certificate and A-Levels, all with individualised learning plans to help students realise their goals in a way that’s unique to them. 

Our in-school guidance counsellors help them decide on the best routes to university and where to apply.

Our personalised pathways 

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme  

The IBDP is an internationally recognised qualification and a rigorous pre-university course aiming to develop enquiring, driven, knowledgeable young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The students that choose this pathway for their final two years of schooling profit from a well-balanced curriculum including English Language and Literature, Mathematics, World Languages, Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. 

As part of the IBDP programme, students will also conduct extensive research for their Extended Essay, explore Theory of Knowledge and participate in a wide range of CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) activities. 

IB Diploma Course

For some students, the full IB Diploma isn’t the right choice. They can opt instead to be registered as an IB Diploma Course student, where they study a combination of optional subjects and core elements of their choice. Students on this pathway must successfully complete the IB Diploma Programme Core Requirements to attain their IB Diploma. 


At NAS Dubai, we offer a truly global experience with outstanding teachers and exceptional educational opportunities. Here, students achieve outstanding exam results and learn to make a difference in the world outside the classroom.
