Comprehensive Study

IB courses teach and require advanced research techniques

Each IB course requires comprehensive and disciplined research. In addition to their traditional subjects, All IB Diploma students write a 4,000-word independent research paper on a topic of their choice. The Extended Essay distinguishes IB students from participants of other advanced courses and better prepares them for college-level research and writing. Research shows that IB diploma recipients find their research skills to be important for future success.
