International Baccalaureate Diplomas – IB Visual Arts — 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 VISUAL ARTS
Students will develop skills, techniques and processes to communicate concepts and ideas, by creating artwork influenced by personal and cultural contexts, becoming informed and critical observers and makers of visual culture and media.
Visual Arts students will cover theoretical practice, including maintaining a written and research-based journal, the creation of a practical portfolio through experimentation and critical thinking, exploring two and three-dimensional forms and lens-based, electronic and screen-based art, plus curatorial practice for exhibition.
Assessment = coursework (100%).

International Baccalaureate World School Status
