UWC Maastricht is IB Primary Years Programme Candidate

September 11, 2023

UWC Maastricht is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP has evolved to become a world leader in future-focused education for students aged 4-11 and is an example of best educational practice globally, responding to the challenges and opportunities facing young students in our rapidly changing world.

Schools who work with the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes share a common philosophy -a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that they believe is important for their students. At UWC Maastricht we already offer the IB Middle Years Programme for students aged 11 until 16 and the IB Diploma or Career-related Programme for students aged 16 until 18. Once we have the PYP, hopefully as of September 2024, there will be continuous learning in line with the IB philosophy from primary school until graduation in year 13.
