What is IB?

The International Baccalaureate Program  is a two-year program primarily aimed at students aged 16–19. The program is one that provides an internationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education, and is accepted by many universities worldwide. It was developed in the early to mid-1960s in Geneva by a group of international educators. Following a six-year pilot program ending in 1975, a bilingual diploma was established.
