Diploma graduates

The IB Diploma Programme began at KIST in September 2004, with our inaugural Grade 12 class graduating in June 2006. The majority of our senior students have high academic aspirations with dreams of attending universities around the world. Successful completion of the two-year diploma course opens up a range of possibilities for students in terms of university options. Many universities around the world recognize the diploma for its high level concepts that prepare students for university study. For an increasing number of universities, an IB Diploma may in fact be all students will need to gain entrance. It is, however, important to note that each university has its own individual requirements and we recommended that families investigate this early. Our College Guidance Counselor is also available to assist with this.

KIST graduates have been offered enrolment into the following universities around the world. Asterisks (*) indicate universities where students have been offered scholarships (partial and full tuition waivers). Bold text indicates universities where KIST students have enrolled.
