The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a challenging two-year curriculum, which comprises the final two years of secondary school (grades 11+12, ages 16-19). The programme leads to a widely recognized university entrance certificate (the IB Diploma). The world’s leading universities welcome students, who have completed the rigorous and intellectually challenging curriculum and value the unique core requirements of the programme which prepare students for higher education and life beyond.
The IB Diploma grants students access to universities in 141 countries, including Switzerland and Germany. For information on the specific requirements, in terms of subject choices and grade results for specific countries, please see www.ibo.org/country/
Admission to the Diploma Programme is open to students that have completed the IB Middle Years Programme or equivalent. All students interested in the Diploma Programme are required to take entrance tests to establish skills in language and mathematics.
Because all IB World Schools follow the same curriculum and have the same final assessment, it is possible for students to move from one IB school to another, ensuring continuity of their education in terms of content, teaching methods and examination.
