International School Groningen offers two programmes: the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). The MYP prepares students for the DP.

The MYP is the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme for students aged 11 – 16. It is a challenging framework for the taught curriculum. The MYP prepares students for the DP.

MYP promotes international mindedness: students understand and work with other cultures

MYP encourages a positive attitude to learning. Students are challenged:
  • to achieve more
  • to be open minded, creative, and think out of the box
  • to participate actively in their communities

MYP reflects real life: students see the links between subjects and the real life issues in their community and beyond.

MYP encourages communication:
  • students are presenters
  • students are reflective
  • students are expressive

Diploma Programme (DP)


The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a two-year pre-university course, leading up to the IB-diploma, which is the only secondary-school diploma to provide worldwide university admission. The IBDP prepares highly motivated students aged 16 to 19 for further academic studies. The DP course at the International School is supervised by Joke Jansma (Deputy Head - Diploma Programme).

Career and further study options


What do you want to do after you graduate from school? How do you decide which study programme to choose? Is there a programme that prepares you for what you want to do with your life, and how do you know if it is the right one?

Our careers counsellor Mr Goodijk is there for all your questions.

Teamwork

Careers counselling is based on teamwork. The mentor, subject teachers, careers counsellor, parents and students all work together to ensure that students have all the information and advice they need in order to make the right decisions. The careers choice process that leads to the right decision can be divided into four stages:

  1. Orientation. You have no idea at all and expect answers to questions like: What are my interests? What am I good at?
  2. Exploration and elimination. Try to find out what interests you most and which courses in your field of interest meet these preferences. Do you meet the entrance requirements?
  3. Going into depth. Check if your idea about these courses is realistic and if they will be the right choice for you.
  4. Take the final decision. Prepare and send in your application. Do you still have doubts?
