Middle Years Programme

UWC Maastricht offers the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme to students age 11 till age 16.

International Baccalaureate (IB) is a worldwide, nonprofit education programme founded to give all students the opportunity to receive an education fit for a globalizing world. It provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, in order to become critical and reflective thinkers. We encourage our students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional school subjects and the real world.


Students in our Middle Years Programme follow a broad based academic curriculum and study eight subject areas. We teach them the knowledge, skills and understanding to allow them to progress to IB-Diploma Programme.
