International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Information Evening

Villiers School is Ireland's only authorised International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme boarding school having been authorised in March 2017.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme was established in Geneva in 1968 to provide students with a balanced education, to facilitate geographic and cultural mobility and to develop international understanding.  Since then, this challenging programme has developed to become a byword for academic excellence as top universities across the globe increasingly recognise its merits.

Villiers’ authorisation as an IBDP school is the outcome of a process which has taken over 5 years since its initiation and is seen by those involved as a very natural progression for what has traditionally been one of Limerick’s most “International” schools.  

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is offered in Villiers School as an alternative to the traditional Leaving Certificate Programme. The benefits of the IB programme, apart from its academic rigour, is that it is transferable from country to country and school to school, and is recognised by top university in Irealnd and all over the world.

The school will hold an information evening to introduce the programme to interested parties on Wednesday October 17th at 7.30pm.  Further information is available from 061-451447.
