Personal Project

Personal Project

In the final year of the MYP programme, each student completes a personal project.

The personal project is a significant piece of work that is the product of the student’s own initiative and creativity.

Each project must reflect a personal understanding of the global contexts. Students apply the skills acquired through one of these contexts as well as approaches to learning.

Students are expected to choose their project, which can take many forms, and take the process through to completion under the supervision of a teacher in the school. This involves:

  • Planning
  • Research
  • A high degree of personal reflection

Teachers assess the personal project against a set of IB assessment criteria.
