IB Diploma Programme

IB Diploma Programme (DP)

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a two year course that is academically challenging and balanced covering basic disciplines such as languages, arts, science, maths as well as providing opportunity for increased emphasis in selected subjects. It continues to be one of the most prestigious pre-university qualifications across the globe. Examinations are held at the end of Grade 12. The Diploma Programme is designed as a ‘holistic programme that addresses the intellectual, emotional and physical well-being of students in Grades 11 & 12 and is receptive to the demands of a globally interconnected world which demands problem solving and analytical skills.

IB Diploma Programme (DP) Curriculum

The IBDP curriculum contains six subject groups together with a core made up of three separate parts as illustrated in the curriculum model below:

Students are expected to study three subjects at ‘Higher Level’ (HL) and three at ‘Standard Level’ (SL).

In addition to this, the three mandatory core components that contribute to a student’s educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and understanding are:

  • The extended essay: The extended essay is a serious piece of academic research and writing wherein students independently research and investigate a topic of interest to produce a 4000-word in- depth study.
  • Theory of knowledge (TOK) offers an opportunity for students to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining how we know, through different ways of knowing and areas of knowledge. Students develop awareness of their own perspectives can act responsibly in an increasingly interrelated world.
  • Creativity, action, service (CAS) involves students in an array of different activities (such as community service work, sports, creative pursuits) alongside their academic studies thus fostering an appreciation of life beyond the classroom walls.
