IB Diploma Programme students study six courses at higher level (HL) or standard level (SL). Students must choose one subject from each of groups 1 to 5, thus ensuring breadth of experience in languages, social studies, the experimental sciences and mathematics. The sixth subject may be an arts subject chosen from group 6, or the student may choose another subject from groups 1 to 5. In addition the programme has three core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding: The Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge, and Creativity, Activity, and Service.​
