Diploma Programme (DP) is a two-year programme and covers third and fourth year students of high school. International baccalaureate diploma students choose one subject from each of the six groups of subjects, 3 subjects at the Higher Level (HL) and 3 subjects at the Standard Level (SL). In addition, each student must complete 3 additional core courses and the forms of work resulting from their specificity.
The choice of subjects for the IBDP exam is discussed with each student individually, taking into account the preferences for their future field of study and the requirements of specific universities.
IB learners are:
- encouraged to think critically and solve complex problems
- drive their own learning
- a core part in educational programmes that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world
- more culturally aware,through the development of a second language
- able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
IB students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics. They are also likely to perform well academically – often better than students on other curricula.
The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:
- encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
- develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools
- encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
- develop multilingual students.
Our programmes help IB students:
- ask challenging questions
- think critically
- learn across disciplines ( disciplinary, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary)
- develop research skills proven to help them in higher education.
