In November 2013, UWC Dilijan has become fully accredited as an IB World School.
This means that it is authorised to offer the IB Diploma Programme (taught in English), to students aged 16-18, starting in September 2014.
The IB Diploma has become a symbol of academic integrity and intellectual promise throughout the world of international education, and is a sound preparation for students seeking entrance to the best universities and colleges in the world.
In the full Diploma programme, each student studies three Higher Level (HL) and three Standard Level (SL) subjects. IB candidates are also required to write an Extended Essay, complete a course of Theory of Knowledge (TOK), and actively engage in Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) components. See the Academic section of this website for the subjects to be offered at UWC Dilijan.
