IB Students in Universities
The IB diploma is a passport to higher education.
One of the major advantages of the IB system is that it allows its graduates to fulfill the requirements of various national systems of education and is based on the pattern of no single country. The primary objective of the IB programme is to provide a world-class education that prepares students of different linguistic, cultural, and educational backgrounds with the intellectual, social, and critical perspectives necessary for university and indeed the rest of their lives. For four decades thousands of young adults from all continents have earned the IB Diploma and have gained admissions to leading institutions of higher education. The continued expansion of the IBDP acts as a strong example of its growing reputation and stature in education across the globe.
Therefore, our students have a wide range of choices among the nearly 3,000 higher institutions around the globe. All of them recognize and eagerly seek after IB Diploma holders, including top universities such as Harvard (US), Yale (US), Stanford (US), MIT (US), Oxford (UK), Cambridge (UK), University of British Columbia (Canada), and University of Auckland (New Zealand). Many universities offer scholarships and advanced placement for IBDP graduates as they are considered to be stronger than other students in breadth of knowledge, critical thinking, communications skills, self-management, and motivation.
