The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is a rigorous two-year pre-university curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities and many award advanced standing or university credits for successfully completed IB diplomas and courses.

DP University Counseling
IB DP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) university counseling is a specialized service that focuses on helping high school students who are pursuing the IB DP Program choose and apply to colleges and universities. In BIA, the College Counselor works very closely with students (one to one) to provide guidance, support, and resources to help them make informed decisions about their college options.
The BIA College Counselor supports students throughout the college application process usually with UCAS and Common App, including helping them create a college list, writing college essays, completing applications, and preparing them for interviews, campus visits, and standardized tests if needed (IELTS, SATs, DELF, etc). In addition, they guide the DP CAS work to provide advice on work experience and extra-curricular activities for each individual student!
