SOTA’s IB Diploma qualification is recognised by top universities worldwide. Armed with their IB Diploma and extensive arts portfolio, SOTA students can look forward to the arts as a career or leverage their arts-enriched educational experience to embark on diverse career options such as journalism, law, architecture and more.
The IB Diploma Programme:

- Comprises study from six subject groups to impart breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding;
- Develops skills and a positive attitude toward learning that will prepare students for higher education;
- Involves the study at least two languages to increase the understanding of cultures, including their own;
- Makes connections across traditional academic disciplines and explores the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique Theory Of Knowledge course;
- Requires students to undertake in-depth research into an area of interest through the lens of one or more academic disciplines in the Extended Essay; and
- Enhances a student’s personal and interpersonal development through creativity, action and service.
