About the IB Diploma Programme

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is for students aged 16-19, recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities. Evidence suggests that higher rates of IBDP students go on to university, are more likely to attend a top 20 university and achieve a first-class honours degree. The IB Diploma Programme is made up of six subject groups and the Diploma core, comprising Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay (EE).

Through the IB Diploma core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.
