The IBDP is an academically rigorous two-year pre-university programme recognised worldwide. It is noted for its high academic standards, preparing students for colleges and universities around the world. Through its holistic curriculum, it supports students in balancing their studies and extracurricular activities.
At OWIS, we believe the IB Diploma Programme is designed to meet the needs of our students between the ages of 16 and 18. The IBDP stretches our students by pushing them beyond the comfort zone of their two or three strongest subjects. This opens the doors to potential paths for future interests and studies.
This course, which explores the nature of knowledge, is required for all IB DP students and culminates with an oral presentation and essay.
CAS allows students to participate in meaningful activities that encourage them to set goals, chart their progress and reflect and report on what they learned. Examples of CAS activities and projects include:
Per IB Diploma requirements, students complete a research project and write a 4,000-word paper. The extended essay not only enables students to investigate subjects that interest them but also prepares them for the rigours of undergraduate research as they learn how to frame a research question, support an argument and hone their communication skills.
