Advantages Of The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program

When looking to enroll your children abroad, one of the most important questions to ask is, “Will their education be accepted at universities around the world?” Hand-in-hand with that question is, “Will they be prepared for these universities?” Frankly, a boarding school could have the best-looking facilities and the nicest environments, but without an appropriate degree program that is recognized by universities back home, it’s quite probably a waste of time.

For British, American, and French parents, the option exists for their children to study at international schools with national curricula, such as A-Levels or the French Baccalaureate program. In such a case, their children will graduate with the option to study at national universities that accept their country-specific degrees.

However, there’s another, arguably superior option for these children studying abroad, which would make them eligible for admission to thousands of prestigious universities all over the world – the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, or IB DP.


Why the IB Diploma Program?

A classic among educational programs that was developed nearly half a century ago, the two-year IB Diploma is recognized by dozens of countries. It consists of six subject groups that represent a diverse array of courses, including math, science, and language and literature studies. It also includes in its requirements a core program that consists of a theory of knowledge course, a 4,000-word independently researched extended essay taken from a list of approved topics, and a “Creativity, Activity, or Service” project that could involve community service, creative activities, or physical activities.

The comprehensiveness, diversity, and flexibility of the IB DP make it an ideal choice for international students. Studies show that its efficacy is nothing to snort at – graduates of the program end up more frequently in advanced standing, perform better at their studies, and are admitted to more exclusive universities. In addition, many universities offer special course credits, and even scholarships that are exclusive to IB DP graduates.

The IB DP at Swiss International School Dubai

At SISD, we offer the International Baccalaureate Degree Program for all students, conferring all of its advantages to our graduates. A diverse, multicultural staff of brilliant and passionate educators ensures that students are well-prepared for any challenges they may face, whether in future university education or throughout life as a whole.

In addition to the IB DP, students are also benefited by our College Counselling Team, composed of specialists from English, French, and German-speaking countries, who can provide information and guidance for students as early as the start of Grade 9, preparing them for university admission requirements, helping them decide what schools and courses to take up, and help support decision-making every step of the way.

SISD’s implementation of the IB DP comes with unique subjects that aren’t found anywhere else, such as French and German Literature courses, the “DP Histoire” program where students can learn history in French at the DP level, and even write their extended essay in French or German, supervised by instructors who are native speakers in their respective languages.

Because SISD is inherently a bilingual school, teaching in German and English, graduates are also qualified for the Bilingual IB Diploma, which has its own benefits.

For parents in the region, as well as those who want a unique educational experience for their children, Swiss International School Dubai represents an inspired, intelligent choice for their future, opening the way to studies wherever they want, and equipping them with the skills and connections they need to stay competitive in an increasingly globalized world.
