how does wiss prepare students for university and their desired careers  beyond?

“IB is well known to us for its excellent preparations. Success in an IB programme correlates well with success at Harvard. We are always pleased to see the credentials of the IB Diploma Programme on the transcript.” 

Marlyn McGrath Lewis
Director of Undergraduate Admission, Harvard University

The Class of 2020 has received offers from more than 50 universities around the world and will be attending top universities in more than 8 countries in various subjects and fields including Economics, Computer Science, Engineering, Music, Lighting Design and many more!

IB World Schools help students engage in inquiry, action and reflection on locally and globally significant issues across the curriculum. And fittingly, the qualification is internationally benchmarked, allowing graduates to continue their studies anywhere in the world. 

In 2011, figures from the UKs Higher Education Statistics Agency found that IB graduates were much more likely to be enrolled at one of the top 20 higher education institutions than entrants holding other qualifications.

Studying six subjects means students aren’t forced to narrow their choices while still at school, and can keep university options open. That doesn’t come at the expense of academic rigor, though. IB Diploma Programme students follow three subjects at Higher Level, where they receive 240 teaching hours in each.
