IB Diploma

International Baccalaureate


We firmly believe that a multi-cultural experience is the best way to learn the values of mutual understanding and tolerance.

Lemania College is a proud member of the International Baccalaureate (IB) community.
The IB was founded in Geneva in 1968 and is now offered by around 4,600 schools in more than 140 countries.

Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world.

Here at Lemania College, our admission procedure looks at potential students’ whole personality rather than focusing purely on applicants’ academic record. This gives us a better picture of each student’s specific needs, to make sure they succeed and fulfil their ambitions once they join the school.

We only make final admission decisions once students have submitted a complete application pack. If you are still missing some documents, you will need to tell us when they will be available.

Letters of recommendation from your teachers will need to show that you are hard-working, attentive in class and capable of meeting Lemania College’s rigorous academic standards.

Our admin team is here to help you complete the admission process and, if necessary, obtain your student visa.

The school’s Admissions Committee accepts all suitably qualified applicants, without discrimination on racial, ethnic or religious grounds.


Our programmes
Lemania College offers two programmes for students aged 15 and over. Both programmes are complementary and delivered in English.

Our Preparatory Class / Pre-IB is designed for students who want to improve their abilities in English, numerical reasoning, and experimental and human sciences, while striking the right balance between academic study and social interaction. Our Preparatory Class is a one-year programme that prepares students for the Diploma Programme.

The Diploma Programme / IB1 & IB2 is a balanced yet demanding course leading to final exams. It prepares students for a successful transition to university study and beyond. It is designed with the intellectual, social, emotional and physical welfare of students in mind. The programme enjoys an outstanding reputation and is widely respected.


Here at Lemania College, our teaching and learning framework is the foundation of our success. We focus on improving students’ results in two ways. First, our framework uses a common language to deliver outstanding teaching, with an emphasis on professional development. Second, it clearly states what we expect of our teachers, laying the foundation for a comprehensive assessment system such as our “learning scale”. Our aim is to challenge our students, to push them to be passionate and motivated, and to make them take responsibility for their own learning. That’s why our teaching and administration staff are constantly looking for ways to improve what they do.

New technologies are now part of every aspect of our daily lives, our communities and our households. Here at Lemania College, we understand the importance of new technologies in improving our teaching and our students’ learning. And we do much more than just teach computing in specialist classrooms. We use new technologies to support the four pillars of our teaching and learning framework: active student engagement, group work sessions, interaction with teachers, and contact with experts from the outside world. Here at Lemania, we use these technologies on a daily basis to support our objectives and the aims of our programme.


The International Baccalaureate is recognised worldwide, and students who obtain the qualification can enrol at the university of their choice.

In 2013, more than 100,000 students holding the IB qualification went on to higher education courses, and this number is rising each year. In the last decade, IB students have applied to more than 5,000 higher education institutions in over 100 countries. Digging deeper into the statistics reveals that students who hold the IB qualification stand a better chance of being accepted on a higher education course than their peers and obtain better results.
