International Baccalaureate

The IB curriculum consists of 3 different stages of education, mainly the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). 

In comparison with Cambridge/ Edexcel IGCSE curriculum, the MYP is equivalent to Cambridge/ Edexcel IGCSE’s O Level and for DP, it is equivalent to the Cambridge/Edexcel IGCSE’s A-Level.

IB MYP

IB MYP is a curriculum framework designed for learners aged 11 to 16 by the International Baccalaureate (IB). It is a five-year programme.

The IB MYP comprises eight subject groups:

  • Language acquisition.
  • Language and literature.
  • Individuals and societies.
  • Sciences.
  • Mathematics.
  • Arts.
  • Physical and health education.
  • Design

IB DP

The IB DP has six subject groups.

This offers students the choice to specialise in certain subjects.

  • Students select one course from each subject group (The arts may be replaced with another subject).
  • At least two languages are studied.
  • At least three courses are taken at a higher level (HL), generally 240 hours of instruction. Standard level (SL) courses are typically 150 hours.
  • All courses are designed to span two years, assessed with the same level of rigour and equally weighted.

A compulsory core comprises three distinct components, and is an integral part of the DP student experience:

  • Theory of knowledge (TOK)
  • The extended essay (EE) 
  • Creativity, activity, service (CAS) 

To read more in-depth about the IB MYP and DP curriculum, exam fees, their benefits and assessment, read Tutopiya’s Complete Guide to the International Baccalaureate MYP and DP.

Finding schools that offer IB programmes can be tedious and time-consuming. Japan has more than 50 schools that offer IB programmes.

Tutopiya has helped by compiling the entire list of schools that offer IB programs with respect to the type of programme they offer as well as their language of instruction.
