Final grade: wonderful!

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is an internationally recognized qualification that enables students to study both in Austria and abroad. This two-year program aims to educate reflective and responsible young people who contribute to a peaceful word. There are around 5,600 IB World Schools® worldwide, 18 of them in Austria.

All IB World Schools® follow the same curriculum worldwide. Students choose one subject from each of five subject groups: first language, foreign language, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics. As the sixth subject, art or a subject from one of the five other subject groups can be chosen. Please contact Jutta Zopf, IB coordinator, (+43 680 55 77 573) for information on the exact range of subjects on offer.

with a comprehensive, well-rounded education.

by artistic, athletic and social activities, which in turn increases intrinsic
motivation, social commitment and supports the emotional

take place and are externally assessed.
