Diploma Programme (DP)

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a challenging, well rounded, two-year pre-university curriculum that leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world's leading universities. The DP prepares students for universities and encourages them to ask challenging questions, learn how to learn, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures. The curriculum contains six subject groups as well as community service, an extended essay, and a course in theory of knowledge.
