6. How do colleges and universities view the Diploma Programme?

World leading universities recognise the DP as one of the highest standards in university preparatory education. Research studies suggest that higher rates of DP students go on to university and higher education study than non-IB students. Further, DP students report being better prepared for postsecondary studies than their peers.

All DP teachers receive professional development in the IB’s approaches to teaching and approaches to learning by certified IB workshop leaders. This is a requirement of IB World Schools implementing the DP.

8 What are the advantages of an IB education?

IB World Schools are subject to a strict accreditation process monitored by IB, ensuring that schools provide a high quality education. Teaching methods and curriculums are research-based and draw from the best educational practices around the world. An IB education:

  • Focusses on learners
  • Develops effective approaches to teaching and learning
  • Works within global contexts
  • Explores significant content and provides students with a broad and balanced education

9 What kind of a student is a good candidate for DP?

The DP is a challenging course of study. Success throughout the programme depends on a student’s dedication to do his or her best, willingness to be organised in order to complete the work while leading a full, balanced life, and a strong commitment to learning in and beyond the classroom. That is more of an indicator of ability to earn the diploma than prior academic success.
