dpWhat is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme?

It is a comprehensive and challenging two-year, upper secondary school curriculum leading to the award of a diploma and providing an international university entrance qualification.

Course work is both internally and externally moderated and, together with externally set examinations, a final score is awarded at the end of the two-year course study. The Programme is unique in that it allows for subject specialisation as well as providing a breadth of subject study.
