The IB came to Finland in 1990, and the first school to receive accreditation from the International Baccalaureate Organization, headquartered in Geneva, was Helsingin Suomalainen Yhteiskoulu (SYK). In 1994, FIBS was founded and became a member organisation of the Union of Upper Secondary School Students in Finland (Suomen Lukiolaisten Liitto). Today, FIBS has over one thousand members, all of whom study in one of Finland’s 18 IB schools.
Although many of the IB students are international, applying with a fully Finnish middle school background is also common. Getting used to another language of study is possible to anyone with average English skills. A lot more emphasis is placed on responsibility, diligence and interest for learning new things. Compared to a typical student of the Finnish national curriculum, the IB students tend to have more written assignments such as laboratory reports and literary essays.
If you are a prospective IB applicant, please visit the IB schools’ own web sites listed on the right to learn more about the specific school you are considering.
