Continuing with our tradition of innovation we will pioneer the global implementation of Online IB Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 19 from around the world. In addition, we are the first online school to offer this course in three language modalities: 100% English, 100% Spanish and bilingual English-Spanish.

Over 3,000 students have completed the of the IB Diploma Programme at SEK International Schools with excellent results, which has allowed them to study at the most prestigious universities in the world.

With over 45 years’ experience in teaching the IB Diploma Programme, we were the first authorised educational institution in Spain and we were among the first 35 IB Schools in the world to implement the International Baccalaureate programmes.



For children and young people from 16 to 19 years of age, it is a rigorous and balanced programme taught over two years and ending with students sitting final exams. It is an excellent preparation for university and adult life and is widely recognised by universities from around the world.

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a balanced and academically challenging educational programme. It prepares students for success at university and in life.

Designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being of students, the programme aims for students to achieve breadth and depth of knowledge, and to thrive physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.




From anywhere in the world

Lessons will be given in central European time and will be recorded so that they can be accessed at any time and from anywhere in the world.

Language selection

Students interested in taking the DP Online may choose between three language combinations: Spanish, English, Bilingual (Spanish – English).

With the best teachers

Experts in teaching the different Diploma Programme subjects, all our teachers have extensive experience in hybrid and online methodologies.


In addition to the daily lessons in synchronous mode and the possibility of accessing all of them asynchronously, students will be provided with a tailored educational model and will receive the individual support and tutorials they need.


First class technology

Thanks to our constant commitment to cutting-edge technology, students will enjoy, in our personalised virtual environment for individual and collaborative work, interactive experiences in simulators and laboratories.

Joining our community

We want our online students to feel part of our learning community and live an enriching academic, personal and social experience. We offer a full range of activities in which they can participate virtually throughout the academic year: cafes, online cinema, competitions and debates, viewing of sporting events, etc.

Easy, comfortable and agile contact with the school.

Our platform is designed so that parents/guardians can keep track of their children’s day-to-day, their achievements and progress. In addition, they can establish contact or communication with the school in case they have any questions or concerns.






We implement a discussion-based learning model in which all students build knowledge together, guided by their subject teachers. This proposal improves interactions between students and their teachers. It brings us closer to the SEK educational experience by including a holistic approach to the student and a sense of community. In addition, this proposal promotes cognitive, social, emotional, physical, mental growth and the development of personal identity.

Inquiry, discussion and competency-based learning are the focus of our teaching and learning purpose. Our competency model is the result of merging the dimensions of the IB teaching and learning approaches and the SEK Education Group competency profile. It is an integral part of teaching and learning that goes beyond the strictly academic and is applicable to all members of our broad learning community.

At the heart of the IB’s mission and strategy is the goal of creating opportunities for a wide variety of students, including those from diverse backgrounds, to participate in IB educational programmes. The IB believes that an online learning model could help make the Diploma Programme more accessible to students. By adopting an online Diploma Programme model, several potential benefits and solutions could be provided for students who require alternative ways of accessing education.
Any student between the ages of 16 and 19 can access this programme, but it is specially designed for those students who:

  • Have been displaced or are refugees.
  • Travel frequently for long periods of time.
  • Have disabilities or face emotional and social challenges.
  • Live in remote areas.
  • Are pursuing their passions in areas like sports, music, or performing arts, and need to attend training sessions.
  • Are home-schooled where permitted by local governments.

In the online IB Diploma Programme students follow the same curriculum that is taught in face-to-face IB World Schools.

During the two years of the diploma programme, students study six subjects of their choice, in the following subject groups:

  • Language and Literature
  • Language Acquisition+
  • Individuals and Societies
  • Science
  • Mathematics
  • Sixth subject

Within these six groups of subjects, there are Standard Level and Higher Level. Each student has to take three subjects at each level, one from each academic area and a sixth optional subject. In addition to this, diploma students:

  • Write an Extended Essay.. The extended essay is a piece of independent research work directed by the student themselves, which culminates in a 4,000-word essay.
  • They also do a Theory of Knowledge course (TOK), which asks students to reflect on the nature of knowledge and how we know what we claim to know. It is assessed through a presentation and a 1,600-word essay.
  • Students take part in Creativity, Action and Service (CAS), which allows them to be part of a variety of activities concurrent with the study of academic disciplines. In this way they enhance their personal and interpersonal development through learning through experience.

Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) is one of the three essential elements that all students must complete as part of the main section of the Diploma Programme. It includes projects such as: creating artwork, organising sports team workouts, volunteering in the local community, working on charity projects, or learning a new skill. As part of any IB programme, CAS activities are largely carried out independently by the student, guided and supported by a CAS supervisor. At SEK International School Online, our students will be given support in the projects regardless of where they are, and the activities will be carried out and documented in their local environment, to form the evidence of learning for their portfolio.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an assessment programme for students aged 16-19 that is respected by leading universities around the world.

To move forward in the application process after completing the registration form, the following documents are required:

  • Students’ identification document or passport and that of the parents or legal guardians.
  • Academic requirements: Marks for the current year and completion of the previous academic year and marks for the current academic year if they have them.

SEK International Schools will provide access to any of our schools authorised to offer the DP (including those with boarding) for students to take their final IB exams in person. In case students are unable to travel to one of our SEK schools, we will find an IB World School that will admit students during the exam period.

Our commitment to Diploma Programme assessment ensures that:

  • Our assessment strategies are consistent with the objectives of the course.
  • Student learning is assessed on an ongoing basis, using a variety of methods for both content and skills.
  • Our assessment strategies enable students to be aware of their progress.
  • There are opportunities for students to self-assess and co-assess.
  • We provide marking rubrics and work models as a model of best practices.
