IB Diploma Programme
Understanding the IB Diploma Programme curriculum framework
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) caters to 16 to 19-year-olds, fostering global awareness. Across six subject groups, it promotes a diverse education, connecting disciplines for a holistic worldview. Crafted to inspire academic excellence, personal development, and global perspective, the IB DP equips students for a connected world.
In addition to subject groups, IB DP involves TOK, EE, and CAS components. TOK fosters critical thinking about knowledge, while the Extended Essay enables independent research. CAS emphasises experiential learning through creative, active, and service-oriented activities. These components provide a holistic educational experience, preparing students for higher education and instilling a global perspective and commitment to positive change.
