Diploma Programme

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an assessed programme for students aged 16 to 19. It is respected by leading universities across the globe. The curriculum is made up of the DP core and six subject groups. Made up of the three required components, the DP core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills.

The three core elements are:

  • Theory of knowledge, in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know.
  • The extended essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper
  • Creativity, activity, service (CAS) in which students complete a project related to these three concepts. 
Following are the subject groups:
  • Studies in language and literature
  • Language acquisition
  • Individuals and societies
  • Mathematics 
  • Sciences 
  • The arts
