Career-Related Programme

The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) is a pre-university course designed for students aged 16-19. We  welcome day students (who live in the region) as well as residential students.

The Career-related Programme allows students to choose courses with a particular focus on their future career of choice. At UWC Maastricht, we have designed one very innovative pathway in Sustainable Business and one in Music. Besides academic rigour, the IBCP will focus on personal and professional skills development and relevant service and work-related experiences.


Students follow a broad based academic curriculum aimed at giving them the knowledge, skills and understanding to allow them to prepare for life after UWC. Students choose a number of IB Diploma subjects, complete the career-related study and develop a broad range of personal and professional skills.
