The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers three programmes to help students develop the skills to survive and thrive in the globalising world. They are the Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged three to 12, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for youngsters aged 11 to 16, and the Diploma Programme (DP) for young adults aged 16 to 19.

The two-year DP requires students to study six subjects covering languages, humanities and sciences, alongside a theory of knowledge course. They must also do a 4,000-word extended essay, and pursue creativity, action and service activities.

Currently, there are 44 schools offering at least one IB programme in Hong Kong.
