Subjects Offered

As a part of their IB Diploma Programme, students choose 3 subjects they will take on Higher Level (HL) and another 3 on Standard Level (SL). HL subjects usually reflect their professional choices, therefore the combination is usually based on their plans for further education. Nevertheless, if a student hasn’t identified his/her career plans, the IB Coordinator is always ready to help them in determining the most efficient combination of subjects, which will contribute to their further education.

Higher Level (HL) subjects are taught for 7 x 40-minutes periods per week, which over the 60+ weeks of the diploma create 280+ hours of contact time.

Standard Level (SL) subjects are taught for 4 x 40-minute periods per week, which of the 60+ weeks of the diploma creates 160+ hours of contact time.
