Read curriculum updates and subject briefs

Last updated:

The IB reviews all subjects regularly to ensure that each one incorporates the latest educational research and lessons learned from a thorough evaluation of the existing curriculum.

IB curriculum reviews are a collaborative process that aims to produce excellent, internationally minded, research-based curricula and associated support materials that enable students to develop the attributes of the learner profile and embody the IB mission. 

This section provides an overview of the Diploma Programme (DP) course updates, in line with the most recent and upcoming curriculum update cycle.

You can also access the subject briefs, which provide a technical breakdown of the curriculum and assessment methods for each subject at standard level and higher level (if applicable).
