“What IB teaches you is more than just knowledge. It’s a way of thinking and viewing the world around you” (Rasmus Greve, IB Hasseris Graduate 2012)
As the only school in Northern Jutland, Hasseris Gymnasium & IB World School offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, preparing students for further education and life beyond. The IB Diploma, as this exam is called, is developed by the the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), a non-profit educational organisation, which was founded in 1968 with the aim of developing intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Currently, IB programmes for children and young people can be found in more than 4600 schools in approximately 150 countries. At Hasseris Gymnasium & IB World School we have around 150 students from many different countries and with various cultural backgrounds. The IB Diploma Exam is recognized worldwide as a university admission exam. In Denmark it is likewise accepted for admission for further education on equal terms with stx, hhx and htx and with new, highly improved admission terms for IB students in Denmark from 2018. Read more about the admission terms in the IB press release 2018 or see the full report here: https://ufm.dk/aktuelt/nyheder/2017/unge-med-international-gymnasieuddannelse-far-bedre-adgang-til-videregaende-uddannelser
The teaching language for IB is primarily English, and the curriculum differs in various ways from that of the Danish stx. Some of the students are attending the PreIB class, a preparatory class more or less similar to the Danish 1g, whereas the rest are students at the actual 2-year IB programme.

“IB made me look at our world not just from another perspective, but from many different perspectives. IB helped me become a IB helped me become a world-citizen before anything else.” (Zhiawa Yonis – IB Hasseris Graduate 2013)
