The IB diploma is recognised and welcome by universities around the globe. Research studies have proven that IB Diploma students have a higher chance to be admitted to top tier universities in comparison to other students holding other qualifications. For instance, a study by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows that IB Diploma graduates are more likely to enrol in one of the UK’s top 20 universities and colleges than other students with similar qualifications. Additionally, the extended essay, internal assessments and the theory of knowledge are components of the IB programme that demand students to develop advanced independent research and organizational skills. This skill in particular is highly essential to carry forward as it will help familiarise students with doing research at a university level.
