WISS Today Article

The Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) is the only school in mainland China, offering the IB Career-related Programme (IBCP) as part of the full continuum of IB programmes.  

During the 2017-2018 school year, WISS began developing IBCP in an effort to give students more options, creating a flexible and balanced curriculum. IBCP is a great opportunity for Shanghai students who are passionate about Sports, Art & Design, or Production Arts. 

We are excited to announce that the University of Melbourne, one of the world’s leading universities, now accepts the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) for the Bachelor of Fine Arts programs at the University of Melbourne.
