An extensive look at the IB Diploma Programme

This session of Stamford Talks will be focusing on the IBDP program (International Baccalaureate Diploma Program).

This Stamford information session will help parents understand the core elements of the IBDP and what is expected of students before and after acceptance into the program, as well as paths post-graduation.

The session will cover:

  • A broad overview of the IBDP
  • Academic and non-academic requirements for entry
  • Required courses and electives
  • Skills needed for students to be successful in the program
  • IB Learner Profile Attributes
