IB Diploma Programme

There are two ways in which students can follow the IB curriculum at ISH. They can become IB Diploma candidates and attempt the full programme or they can choose to study individual subjects and take IB examinations (courses) in these subjects.

Students may enrol in the two year IB Diploma Programme upon departmental recommendation. To qualify for the IB Diploma, the full IB course of study must be followed. This entails passing examinations in six subject areas, three at higher level and three at standard level, completing an Extended Essay which is an independent research study, a course in the Theory of Knowledge and participation in CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) activities.

The International School Hamburg has been offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) since 1979. It is recognised as a pre-university course and is designed to facilitate the mobility of students, and to promote international understanding.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a rigorous two year programme of academic study.
