IBDP University Recognition

The IB Diploma is a passport to higher education. Most universities and colleges recommend that students in high school enroll in a rigorous academic program such as the IB Diploma. Some colleges and universities may offer advanced credit to students with strong examination results.

IB students routinely gain admission to some of the best known universities in the world. Most of these institutions have established recognition policies for the IB Diploma.

IBO publishes and maintains information about university recognition displayed on their public website www.ibo.org. Select from the country information pages and on the searchable University recognition directory.

Information concerning national and ‘University Recognition’ policies may be obtained through the IB Coordinator or the High School counselor.
