Keeping up with the ethos of TIPS, Chennai IBDP program aims to equip the students with skills to participate actively and responsibly in an ever-changing and increasingly interrelated world with relevant knowledge database by offering prestigious IB Diploma Program.

The IBDP Program at TIPS represents a passage from adolescence into adulthood. Students in this age bracket have acquired a sense of personal identity and self-esteem. They are very inquisitive, eager to stretch intellectually, interested in sorting out their full potential and quite willing to assume some form of independence.

The curriculum is made up of the DP core and six subject groups.

Made up of the three required components, the DP core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills.

The three core elements are:

  • Theory of knowledge, in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know, finishing with a 1600 word essay.
  • The extended essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper.
  • Creativity, activity, service, in which students complete a project related to those three concepts and connect with the society.

There are different courses within each subject group.
