Benefits for Students


Students at International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools are given a unique, challenging and diverse education.

IB learners are:

  • encouraged to think critically and solve complex problems

  • drive their own learning

  • a core part of educational programmes that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world

  • more culturally aware through the development of a second language 

  • able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.

IB students often perform better

IB students develop strong academic, social, and emotional characteristics. They are also likely to perform well academically – often better than students on other curricula.
