IB® Diploma Programme.

  • To prepare students for university, to encourage them to learn how to learn, to ask themselves questions, to develop a strong personal and cultural identity and the ability to understand other people from other countries and cultures and to communicate with them.

A two year course with 6 subject groups for each speciality:

  • Dissertation: A work of research, in depth, on a specific subject of interest to the student, which should contain a maximum of 4000 words and will prepare them for the requirements of a future university career.
