University admission

The International Baccalaureate (IB) provides a world-class preparation for university and life beyond. IB students consistently demonstrate the critical thinking and research skills needed to excel in their university studies – and they tend to get into the world’s best universities.



  • Read curriculum updates and subject briefs

    All DP curriculums are reviewed on a seven-year teaching cycle to ensure that each is fit for purpose in a changing world and incorporates the latest educational research and lessons learned from a thorough evaluation of the existing curriculum. 

  • Support students' transition to higher education

    Are you a student planning to apply to university, or a parent or counsellor supporting your students’ application? Find information and resources that can help navigate through the process. 


  • Universities: Collaborate with the IB

    Universities collaborate with the IB in several ways to help shape the future of education: Recognition of IB programmes, the IB educator and leadership certificates, review of DP subjects and research related to the IB.

  • Governments: Collaborate with the IB

    The IB works closely with local and national governments to build partnerships and recognize IB programmes within their education policy framework.
