If students are interested in taking a few DP courses, they must still submit this application. They may indicate within the application if they are only interested in DP courses.
This process was designed to assist students in making the best choice for their futures. While we believe the Diploma Programme can be beneficial for all students, students must want to take on the challenge of this rigorous and rewarding program. Our philosophy is that if we give students and parents the proper information and guidance before entering the program, every stakeholder will benefit more from the experience.
