The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) is currently one of the most prestigious university preparatory programs that is challenging and practical for international students.

What is the international Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP)
The IBDP is designed for students from ages 16-19, to help them experience an international quality education focusing on 4 aspects: Intellectual development., Physical development, Social development, and Soft skills; to improve students’ learning and working capacity in an international environment.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is currently licensed to teach schools across 140 countries, through rigorous testing and evaluation processes designed by the IBO.

In recent years, the economy in many countries has grown rapidly, leading to the volume of students studying abroad increasing.

In many countries, students start learning foreign languages from preschool until the completion of their senior secondary studies.

Education programs such as IBDP are seen as a “passport” for the process of becoming a global citizen and accessing advanced education. Thanks to this practical study program as well as its global curriculum, the perspectives of students studying the IBDP will broaden as they understand and appreciate cultural values, which will bring added confidence for students in their own educational journey.
