The IB program in Krakow

Internationally recognised program for 16-18 year olds

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an international qualification and universities all around the world recognize it.

The British International School of Cracow  (BISC) offers the IB diploma program for students aged 16 to 18.

This is a challenging and balanced educational program, whose aim is to prepare students for success at university and afterwards. It has been designed to address not only the intellectual well–being of students, but as well, the social, emotional and physical estate of each individual.

The International Baccalaureate  consists of many different elements, which is what makes it so different from other qualifications. It focuses not only on the intellectual side of a person, but on other aspects as well.

The IB encourages critical thinking – students have to do a lot of work and research by themselves to arrive at answers. It is great preparation for later life – it teaches you time management and shows you how important being organized is. It also encourages independence.
