The two-year IB Diploma programme is preceded by a preparatory year, Pre-DP. In PreDp you study about the same as in a Swedish national programme, except for the teaching language (which is English).
In the end of PreDp you will chose the subjects you wish to study on the actual IB Diploma programme. You will choose six subjects, one from each group, (1 to 6), in the hexagon below. Note that group six means that you choose one more subject from either group three or four.
One of the aims of the IB is for you to develop skills such as curiosity, empathy and acceptance. The subjects in the core develop those skills.
Theory of Knowledge (TOK), is a subject that focuses on questions like: “What do I believe in"? “What are my reasons for believing"? “Are those reasons good ones"?
As a balance to the theoretical studies CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) also lies at the heart of the programme. Here you can work with music, art, sports as well as voluntary community activities.
EE, the extended essay, is a an independent, self-directed piece of research, which you do in one of your favourite subjects.
The aim of the IB programme is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these attributes, and others like them, can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national and global communities.
