Full IB Diploma students study six subjects, three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level. The subjects are chosen from six groups. Choices available may vary from year to year according to demand, timetabling and staffing changes.

In addition to the six subjects that they study, Diploma Programme students also take a Theory of Knowledge Course and take part in a Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) programme. Full Diploma students also produce a 4000 word Extended Essay.
