They’ll tell you about it
The most prestigious universities worldwide show great interest in pupils who obtain the Diploma Programme as a result of their capacity for hard work and effort as well as their human values.
“The International Baccalaureate is an excellent opportunity on a professional level for any teacher. For students it means the opportunity to improve their curriculum and skills. The values transmitted by the Diploma Programme encourage creativity, solidarity and self-discipline. They learn to investigate and to reflect perceptively and get used to scientific methodology. All this guarantees them the optimal preparation for and greater possibility of success in their university studies.”
“The International Baccalaureate helps pupils to be more constructive and critical people, given that it is they who have to think and learn at their own pace, to then express their own ideas orally or in writing. Furthermore, they become aware that the world is multicultural, and what better way to do this than by learning a second language, focusing of the different characteristics and peculiarities of that language. Lastly, pupils who do this Baccalaureate must be constant in order to achieve their objectives, this being the tool which will make the become people who through their individuality are able to contribute to the world.”
