The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.
The program is unique in that it is based on no particular national education system, but is a deliberate balance between breadth and the specialization which is required by many Universities.
At the Queensland Academy for Creative Industries, we align strongly with the Diploma’s emphasis upon international-mindedness.
This stands firmly in line with our vision for our graduates to have an understanding of global issues and a concern for others in our community and the broader world.
The IBO believes that students must also develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity. For this reason, all students study two languages.
We believe the IB Diploma course will assist students in developing the skills they need to live and work in an international context which is essential for life in the 21st Century. It provides a balanced education for the ‘whole’ student and provides excellent preparation for both university and adult life.
