The IB diploma is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities. It is a passport to higher education. Universities around the world welcome the unique characteristics of IB Diploma Programme students and recognize the way in which the programme helps to prepare students for university level education.
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.
The IBO works closely with universities in all regions of the world to gain recognition for the IB diploma. To aid the process the IB provides:
- direct, online access for university admissions officers and government officials to syllabuses and recent examination papers
- a database containing contact details of universities around the world together with up to-date information about their requirements for admission to assist IB diploma students in making appropriate choices
Students applying to a particular university can access their grades directly from the IBO’s secure web site. For additional information on university recognition, see the IBO website at .
