The IB MYP Programme

The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16.

The MYP emphasises intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world.

It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement – essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.

The MYP is flexible enough to accommodate most national or local curriculum requirements. It builds upon the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed in the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and prepares students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme (DP).

The MYP comprises eight subject groups

  • language acquisition
  • language and literature
  • individuals and societies
  • sciences
  • mathematics
  • arts
  • physical and health education
  • design
