International Baccalaureate Diplomas – IB Psychology — Overview

Alongside one of our creative UAL Level 3 Extended Diplomas in Art & Design, equivalent to three A-Levels, all International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) students will also complete two IB Diploma subjects, each broadly equivalent to either an A-Level or AS-Level depending on whether they are studied at Higher or Standard Level.

Students can study two IB Diploma subjects, from English Literature, Film, History, Business Management, Mathematics, Environmental Systems & Societies, Visual Arts, or Psychology. IB Diploma subjects will be taught at Higher or Standard Level.

All IB Diplomas and the Levels that they are taught are subject to demand - for this reason, applicants must list three IB Diplomas on their application, in order of preference.

IB PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology is the study of behaviour and mental processes, with roots in natural and social sciences, providing a unique approach to understanding modern society.

Students will develop an idea of what influences individual and group behaviours, developing a greater understanding of themselves and empathy for the feelings and needs of others.

Assessment = Two exam papers (75%) and one coursework essay (25%).

Please contact Bea Stevens (bstevens@pca.ac.uk) for more information about IB Psychology.

 

International Baccalaureate World School Status

Plymouth College of Art was awarded International Baccalaureate (IB) World School status in Spring 2019, becoming the first non-private education provider in the South West to offer the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP), which will be taught in conjunction with its existing A-Level-equivalent UAL Level 3 Extended Diplomas. From September 2019, 16 to 19-year-olds in the region will have access to this world-class framework of education, combining vocational skills with academic excellence. Applications for the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) are now open.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
