The International Baccalaureate
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a demanding two‑year programme of study of the traditional academic disciplines. It emphasises inquiry‑based and independent learning as well as rigorous assessment, exactly the skills needed to succeed at university. With evidence that IB students perform better in higher education than their peers, the Diploma is recognised and welcomed by leading universities and colleges around the world.
Students study six courses at higher level or standard level. Apart from studying their first language, students also study an additional language, Mathematics and subjects from the social sciences, experimental sciences and the arts. Students are also required to complete three core elements that promote intercultural understanding and respect as an essential part of life in the 21st century. These core tasks are individual research through the Extended Essay, an inquiry into the Theory Of Knowledge and structured activities of Creativity, Action, Service for personal growth.
Pathways to University
Our graduates enter leading universities in Australia, Britain, the United States and Asia. Most students enrol in competitive courses such as Commerce, Medicine, Law, Engineering, Science, Media and Architecture and many students are awarded scholarships. A Careers Counsellor provides expert guidance and support on subject selection, university admissions procedures, scholarship applications, interview techniques, academic references and writing personal statements. Students can also explore future career pathways in the Careers Resource Centre and or attend Career information evenings with their parents.
Academic attainment is not an end in itself. An international education prepares students for an interconnected world. The ten attributes of the IB learner – inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, reflective – equip our students to be purposeful, responsible and wise global citizens. Education at The Kilmore International School is the foundation for a fulfilling, happy and successful life. When our students graduate, they are World Ready.
