The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is for students aged 16-19. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge. It also enables students to flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. More importantly IB programs work towards developing internationally minded people who recognize their common humanity and shared responsibility of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
The IBDP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay. Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service. There are six subject groups in the curriculum comprising of the following topics:
There are different courses within each subject group. For the IB, learning to communicate in a variety of ways in more than one language is fundamental to the development of intercultural understanding. IB programs, therefore, support complex, dynamic learning through wide-ranging forms of expression. All IB programs require students to learn another language.
Students have two levels of subject, one is Higher Level (HL) and the other is Standard Level (SL). HL is considered to be extensive in study for a particular subject, whereas SL is normal level or to say minimum level requirement for a particular subject. Students suppose to take at least three (but not more than four) subjects at higher level, and the remaining at standard level. Standard level subjects take up 150 teaching hours. Higher level comprises 240 teaching hours. During studying IBDP, students do have an option do a course on Career-related Programme which not only help them for academic preparation but also to explore their horizons to different fields like music, acting and arts. It also prepare them to be an entrepreneur in future.
The International Baccalaureate (IB), and the Diploma Programme (DP) in particular, enjoys a high level of respect and recognition among the world’s higher education institutions in the US, Canada, UK and Europe. For students, success in the IB often results in advanced standing, course credit, scholarships, and other admissions related benefits at many universities.
