|The university policy index captures the recognition policies reported to the IB by universities from around the world. This index allows you to filter by country and/or university name. The IB Student Registry (https://registry.ibo.org/) is the newly launched IB platform to connect IB schools and students with universities & colleges. The registry allows universities to create profiles outlining the various components of their IB recognition policies, including credits and scholarships awarded. This new platform will eventually replace this index. While the IB Student Registry is being introduced, this index will remain available to interested parties. But please note that the information presented here was last updated October 2015. We recommend visiting the university websites for the most up to date information and recognition policies. If you have any questions about recognition or the IB Student Registry, please email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.|
