Past IB Diploma students have gone on to study at a range of prestigious UK universities, including Russell Group, such as Durham, University College, London and Bristol, as well as many well-regarding institutions across Europe, the US and Canada. Subjects studied, reflecting the broad nature of an IB curriculum, have varied from Medicine, Law and Engineering, to Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE), Psychology and Creative and Film studies.
The IB Diploma nurtures transferable knowledge acquisition skills and offers a broad curriculum which keeps open career avenues around the world. It also provides the advanced depth that is necessary to pursue specific careers, such as medicine or architecture, in three subjects.
There is growing evidence, supported by the Higher Education Statistics Report 2011, that IB graduates outperform peers who sat A Levels, at university and in the world of work. The IB Diploma is also highly regarded by universities worldwide, and is of particular value to students who want to apply to US and European universities.
