Diploma Programme courses
IB Diploma Programme courses, at both standard and higher levels, are the academic cornerstone of the IBCC. IB World Schools offering the IBCC select a number of IB Diploma Programme courses that can be offered as part of the IBCC educational framework. Every IBCC student completes two or more Diploma Programme courses selected from any Diploma Programme subject area. It is possible to study up to four Diploma Programme courses depending on the nature of the student’s career-related studies and timetable.
Course selection is tailored to complement a student’s individual career-related study. A student completing an engineering programme, for example, may choose courses in physics and design technology; a student completing a nursing programme may choose biology and sports exercise and health science.
