International Baccalaureate


The International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate is widely regarded as the best pre-university course that is offered anywhere in the world.

There is no other qualification in the world that is recognised by so many institutions in different countries. We offer highest quality teaching and the determination to give every student every possible help in achieving their goals and success. Of course, success also requires hard work from the student.

With 6 subjects and other course components such as the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge course, and the ‘Creativity, Action and Service’ programme*, the IB diploma is exactly why universities around the world hold IB Diploma graduates in such high regard.

At Aranäsgymnasiet, we have created a healthy, well-balanced environment in which respect and compassion thrive. The harmonious relationship between student and teacher is vital to our success.

With this fantastic opportunity to build a strong foundation for a successful future, we encourage every student to be highly motivated, well organised and to enjoy participating in this globally minded programme.

At Aranäsgymnasiet, You make a difference!
This is part of the IB philosophy – you are important not only for what you study but also for what you think, say and do. Not only do you learn subjects; you also learn the importance of critical thinking and of engaging yourself in the local and global communities.

Do you have questions how to apply to the IB-programme? Please contact the IB-coordinator Ruth Walton, ruth.walton@kungsbacka.se

*The extended essay is a requirement for students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects they are studying.

Theory of Knowledge is a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing (perception, emotion, language and reason) and different kinds of knowledge (scientific, artistic, mathematical and historical).

Creativity, action, service requires that students actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom. Students can combine all three components or do activities related to each one of them separately.
