Consider IB Diploma

Is IB for you?

The IB education might be suitable for you if you are prepared for a very high academic level and a substantial amount of homework.

All instruction is conducted in English, so it is essential that you are proficient in both spoken and written English.

The IB Diploma itself lasts for two years, and the level in IB1 corresponds to 2nd year (STX) in the Danish education system.

If you do not have an academic level equivalent to the 1st year (1.g), you should apply for admission to Pre-IB.

Neither Pre-IB nor IB is suitable for short or long term exchange.

Who chooses IB?

The Pre-IB and IB programme (International Baccalaureate) addresses different student target groups. 

You might consider the IB education if:

  • You plan to pursue higher education abroad or an internationally oriented education in Denmark.
  • Your native language is not Danish, and you do not have sufficient proficiency in Danish to take a Danish studentereksamen (STX or HF).
  • You have spent a year abroad and wish to maintain the international perspective.
  • Your parents work abroad, and you want to maintain your connection to Denmark while also preserving the possibility of further education abroad.
  • You are already attending an IB school.

What can you become with an IB Diploma?

The IB Diploma is a good alternative to STX, and it provides access to many higher education programmes both in Denmark and abroad.

Here are some examples of potential career paths with an IB Diploma:

Doctor, engineer, teacher, journalist, biomedical laboratory technician, lawyer, physiotherapist, IT technician, air traffic controller, language officer, social worker, biologist, designer
