IB Diploma at Uplands

The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced two-year programme with final examinations that prepare students exceptionally well for success at university and life beyond. The programme is held in high regard by the world’s leading universities.
Through the subject groupings and the Core elements, the Diploma Programme develops students physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. Strong connections are made across the disciplines, supported by additional requirements in the areas of community service (CAS), recognition of higher-order learning (TOK) and the production of an extensive mini-thesis (EE) in a chosen subject.
Uplands students have achieved great success in comparison to world average scores in each year of the programme, since its inception in 2001.

The following students are recognised for their high achievement in the Diploma Programme for the 2017-18 academic year.
