IB Diploma FAQ
- Do you offer French or any other languages at an advanced level?
- Would it be too difficult for a student to start full IB in grade 11 with no previous IB experience?
- Do universities offer advanced credit to students in completing a partial IB Diploma?
- Do universities value an IB Diploma score the same way they do a letter grade?
As part of the Diploma Programme, students will take 3 courses at Standard Level and 3 at Higher Level. For most ex-immersion students, the HL course is a good fit. We also offer Spanish and Mandarin (the latter depending on student request numbers) at SL and HL. Neither of these courses is designed for beginners. If a student currently doesn't have a second language, they could take Spanish ab initio as part of the Diploma Programme, which is for students who have never studied the language before. It is a fast-paced course that allows students to reach quite a high level over the two years of study.
