International Baccalaureate

International Baccalaureate at Malmö Borgarskola

Borgarskolan offers a wide range of programmes of study, many of which have an international dimension.

Perhaps the most obviously international of these are the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and Career Programmes.

The fact that we have teachers with a long record of working within the IB and that a good number of them are also native English language speakers has contributed to our students’ consistently world class results. In addition, students regularly participate at a high level in academic activities and competitions worldwide.

What is International Baccalaureate?

More than one million students, in over 5000 schools world-wide, are enrolled in one of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes offered.

Developed in 1968, the IB has grown to become one of the most valued educational programs and is viewed as the premier path to higher education and top univesities.

The IB is student centered with the mission a of developing ”inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect”. (
