International ­Baccalaureate

The Diploma Programme core focusses on you!

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through inter-cultural understanding and respect.

The International Baccalaureate is taught in more than 150 countries and more than 3 000 schools worldwide. The Diploma Programme is now offered for students aged 16-19 years at Rudbeckgymnasiet, Örebro.

What makes the Diploma Programme so beneficial?

  • Join a class of internationally minded students.
  • Recognised worldwide both by Universities and employers.
  • English both inside and outside the classroom as a shared means of communication.
  • External examinations ensure quality and fairness.

Our Diploma Programme excels in preparing our students for further academic study at a University level. The majority of our students continue to further university studies here or abroad.

The extended essay asks students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question and present an essay on completion.

Theory of knowledge develops a clear approach to learning that unifies the academic disciplines through philosophy and psychology studies.

Creativity, activity, service (CAS) involves our students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the Diploma Programme. Creativity encourages students to engage in the arts and creative thinking. Activity seeks to develop a healthy lifestyle through physical activity. Service with the community offers a vehicle for new learning with academic value. The three strands of CAS enhance students’ personal and interpersonal development through experiential learning and enable journeys of self-discovery.

Students with an I.B. Diploma can apply to universities in Sweden or all over the world!
