New international diploma programme

Since 2015, Esbjerg Gymnasium has offered an international diploma programme (IB). The programme has been created in collaboration with companies in Esbjerg, Esbjerg Municipality, Business Esbjerg, Esbjerg International School, and Esbjerg Gymnasium & HF.

On a national scale, there are more than 200 Danish gymnasiums (upper secondary schools or high schools). However, only 13 of those are approved IB schools. The international diploma programme in Esbjerg is an essential step in Esbjerg’s strategy for growth towards 2020. With the rapid growth in the energy and offshore sector, Esbjerg has evolved into an international city with the need for both Danish and international employees, and its ability to offer an international diploma programme makes it possible to accommodate the needs of international students and families.
