Program Overview

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of studies, leading the examinations, that meets the needs of a highly motivated secondary school students between the ages of 16 and 19 years.

Diploma candidates are required to select one subject from each of the six subject groups. At least three and not more than four are taken at higher level (HL), the others at standard level (SL). By arranging work in this fashion, students are able to explore some subjects in depth and some more broadly over the over the two-year period. Students may elect to do another subject from groups 2, 3, or 4 instead of a subject from the arts.
