IB Curriculum at OIS INternational School

 

The IB Diploma Programme is governed by the IB learner profile which aims to develop inquiring, caring and knowledgeable students.

 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is widely regarded as the world’s premier post-16 qualification, offering students a wide range of subjects and opportunities to develop their social and leadership skills.  The IBDP is universally recognised as the best possible preparation for entering the world of the 21st century.  It is unique in that it is based on no particular national education system, offering instead a breadth and balance that affords our students a wider range of choices when it comes to selecting university courses.

 

The aim of the IBDP is to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

Subjects Offered in the IBDP: 

 

Group 1:  Language A – ordinarily, the student’s first language.

 

Group 2: Language B – a second language is compulsory for all, either as Language B or Ab Initio (a beginner’s course)

 

Group 3:  Individuals and Societies – this includes subjects such as Economics, History, Business Management, Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS), Geography, Psychology.

 

Group 4: Sciences – Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science.

 

Group 5: Mathematics

 

Group 6: Creative Arts

 

Students choose one subject from each of the groups 1 to 5, and the sixth subject must be an arts subject chosen from group 6, or the student may choose another subject from groups 1 to 4. At least three subjects are taken at higher level (240 teaching hours) and three at standard level (150 teaching hours).

Core Elements of the IBDP:  

As well as studying 6 subjects, all of our diploma students will complete the three core elements:

 

  • Creativity, Action and Service (CAS)

  • Theory of Knowledge (TOK)

  • The Extended Essay

 

All elements of the core present challenges but they also provide excellent opportunities for our students. Through the TOK course, they acquire the sorts of critical thinking and reasoning skills that prepare them for the challenges of university life, whilst the Extended Essay of 4,000 words helps them to develop the research and evaluative skills that are also crucial for success.  The CAS element is key to providing our students with a well-rounded experience, one that makes demands of their social, organizational and leadership abilities, helping them to develop the softer skills that define them as individuals.
