University Recognition & the IBDP



Currently, the IB Diploma Program (IBDP) is recognized by university systems of well over one hundred countries worldwide.  Universities appreciate its breadth and depth, as well as its emphasis on the development of critical thinking skills that serve as an excellent preparation for the rigors of undergraduate courses. 


Whilst the more highly competitive universities worldwide will expect IBDP applicants to achieve a very high Diploma points score, passing the Diploma at or near the minimum points score will still provide an IBDP student with opportunities to be accepted at good universities in the UK, North America, and elsewhere.
