The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is one of the world’s leading pre-university programmes. It is recognised by top universities around the world for its academic rigour and its development of the competencies and mindsets articulated in the IB learning profile. It is an excellent preparation for international university degree programmes.
Over two years, international baccalaureate diploma learners at Nexus International School study six subjects from different subject groups, with the following core components:
Through an oral presentation and 1,600-word essay, IB learners are tested on their critical thinking, and are called upon to support, analyse and critique a theory, discussing how it translates to the real world.
Learners produce a 4,000 word independent research piece preparing them for practical undergraduate research. Each international baccalaureate student at Nexus gets a mentor (a qualified teacher and subject specialist) to help guide them through their essay.»
Learners go beyond the classroom to grow mentally, socially, and creatively. CAS aims to encourage learners to show initiative, demonstrate skills such as collaboration, problem solving and decision making, preparing them for life beyond education. At Nexus we have a dedicated overseas CAS trip in Year 12 to kick-start the IB journey.
The international baccalaureate diploma programme offers so much more than six academic subjects — it develops the whole person through its mandatory core components. At Nexus, the IB is embedded in all that we do and there are many opportunities to work with peers in their academic pursuits, as well as Sport, Arts, Music and Service to support learners to be successful and graduate to the university of their choice.
