Top University Admission
Rigorous academics and a comprehensive University counselling programme open the doors to universities the world over.
In Grades 11 and 12, ICS offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. Students can enrol in and complete the Programme either at full Diploma or individual Courses level. Our teachers and career counsellors ensure that each student is ready for the next steps in university and career. Please see the ICS Diploma Handbook.
The teachers at ICS have taught us how to be attentive, inquisitive, and push ourselves beyond what we believe we are capable of.

Students following the IB Diploma programme choose six courses to study, three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level. Students must choose one subject from five groups - (Language & Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals & Societies, Sciences, Mathematics and the Arts). This ensures a breadth of study across languages, social studies, the experimental sciences and mathematics. The sixth subject may be an Arts subject or one of the elective subjects we offer.
How universities recognise the IB Diploma
A key consideration in choosing IB Diploma Programme courses is whether they fit the entry requirements for programmes students may want to study at university. Please see this presentation about how universities around the world recognise the IB Diploma and about their entry requirements. Please see here for answers to frequently asked questions about the IB Diploma Programme.
The ICS University and Vocational Guidance Handbook provides students with a step-by-step guide to planning their future. Our university counsellor is also ready to welcome your teenager to the Diploma Studies Centre and discuss their pathway to higher education.
