Diploma Programme (16-18)
Amity International School Amsterdam offers the IB Diploma Programme classes since August 2022. It is a rewarding and academically rigorous qualification, which is recognised and highly sought after by leading universities across the world.
There is an emphasis on the development of research and critical reflection and on the importance of individual commitment to creativity, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and service to others.
Amity International School Amsterdam is an authorised International Baccalaureate® Diploma Programme (DP) school since May 2022.
The IB DP takes a holistic approach to teaching and learning and prepares students for university life and beyond with an emphasis on key transferable skills and attributes identified in the IB Learner Profile.
The range of assessment within the DP develops critical, higher-order thinking and excellent written and verbal communication skills.
What is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme?
The IB Diploma is recognised by universities around the world as an entrance qualification and prepares students well for their undergraduate studies.
The IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous academic course that develops lifelong learners by putting personal development at its core. We believe this programme is the right educational journey for our students because they will:
- learn to manage their own learning and develop critical thinking skills
- engage with people in an increasingly globalised world
- enhance their cultural awareness
- gain access to the world’s top universities.
What will students learn?
One of the key features of the IB Diploma is its comprehensive nature, meaning that students study a range of disciplines. IB students choose six courses from six subject areas.
Three courses are taken at Higher Level (HL) and three at Standard Level (SL). In addition, students study the Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity Activity, and Service (CAS) and produce a 4000-word Extended Essay (EE).
Our IB Diploma Programme journey
Amity International School Amsterdam offers the two-year course leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma for students ages 16 through 19, providing a seamless transition from our Middle Years Programme.
Our students enjoy the small close-knit community Amity International School Amsterdam provides. The IB Diploma Programme class sizes never exceed 24 students.
