If your future involves studying or working abroad, then the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, is your choice. This is where you can take an international exam − The International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Here you learn …

…to study your subjects in English, primarily. You also learn how to write essays and design projects in the style that will be asked for in academic studies. The programme focuses on six different subjects and a special project, the Extended Essay. The curriculum also comprises a course called TOK, Theory of Knowledge, and CAS-activities. CAS means Creativity – Action – Service.


There are two profiles to choose from: social sciences and natural sciences. During the first year you take the same subjects and courses as students in the equivalent Swedish national programmes do. At the same time you prepare yourself to study all subjects in English. During the second and third years you study towards the IB Diploma Programme-exam.

After upper secondary school

After completing the programme you are qualified to apply to academic education in Sweden and many other countries. An IB Diploma Programme-diploma will provide you with general entry requirements and specific entry requirements for the six subjects you opted for in your IB Diploma Programme-exam.
