Read curriculum updates

Last updated:

The IB reviews all subjects regularly to ensure that each one incorporates the latest educational research and lessons learned from a thorough evaluation of the existing curriculum.

IB curriculum reviews are a collaborative process that aims to produce excellent, internationally-minded, research-based curricula and associated support materials that enable students to develop the attributes of the learner profile and embody the IB mission.

This section provides an overview of the Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) subject and core component updates, in line with the most recent and upcoming curriculum update cycle.

You also can access DP subject briefs, which provide a technical breakdown of the curriculum and assessment methods for each subject at standard level and higher level (if applicable), and read more about the CP curriculum.
