” . . . . without the IB, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Sure it’s a tough and long journey, but the IB prepares you in every possible way for the real world, whether it is your essay writing skills, your organisational skills, your public speaking skills or your ability to work more efficiently.”

“The IB Diploma taught me how to stay consistently organised over my workload, which has been a great advantage in university. At the same time, the IB Diploma showed me that it is not just about academics. Through programmes like CAS, I was allowed to explore and appreciate a world outside of school, by serving the community, exploring my love for performing and keeping active. Even in university I manage to keep this balance.”

” The IB is something remarkable. It’s challenging, but incredibly rewarding. For me, it was always more than just the skills you acquire. It taught me to be compassionate and to think critically. The programme showed me how to be a global thinker, and I think that’s the most valuable thing I have from my two years of the IB Diploma Programme.”

“Not only does the IB Diploma prepare you for the tertiary institution of your choice, but it gives you the necessary skills and experiences to carry you through your journey in the real world. For me, the ability to critically think is possibly the most important skill I have developed in the IB Diploma Programme.”

“I am incredibly grateful to have been given the opportunity to do the IB Diploma programme. This is for many reasons, but mainly due to the fact that it gave me an incredible set of skills to flourish in university life. Being able to critically think as well as manage your time efficiently are both skills which have been a blessing in the fast paced life in London. Although it was challenging, it was extremely rewarding and totally worth it”
