IB Programme

Universities worldwide respect the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme as a challenging and desirable qualification and look for this credential on transcripts.

The IB Diploma Programme is a demanding academic programme, widely recognized to be the most challenging course of study currently available to students between 16 and 18 years of age and highly valued by universities throughout the world.

Scored out of 45 points, the IB Diploma programme requires students to take six subjects:

  • a literature-based course
  • a world language course
  • a social science
  • an experimental science
  • a mathematics course
  • an elective: these may include visual arts, theatre arts, geography, history business management, economics, a second experimental science, a second language, and more

Three of the six subjects are normally studied at a higher level (in courses representing 240 teaching hours). The remaining three are studied at standard level (representing 150 teaching hours).

In addition, students must also complete three additional requirements:

  • The Extended Essay: A 4,000-word independent, primary research paper on a topic related to one of the six subjects being studied
  • Theory of Knowledge: A critical thinking course combining philosophy and reasoning
  • Creativity, Action and Service: Alongside their academic studies students complete a range of extracurricular activities within 18 months based around Creativity, Action, and Service
