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:

  • Cultivates physical, intellectual, emotional and ethical strengths;
  • 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.

In Years 5 and 6, IBDP students are required to offer the three IBDP core subjects (Theory Of Knowledge, Extended Essay and Creativity, Activity, Service), three subjects at Higher Level (that includes the Arts) and three subjects at Standard Level. Students are expected to honour their DSA commitment and offer the Arts as a subject throughout our six-year programme.
