‍Tikkurilan lukio IB World School


The application procedure is different depending on whether you’re applying to the Pre-IB (premilinary year before IB, all students coming from Finland / 9 years of schooling required) or directly to IB (10 years of schooling required). You can see the details for applying in both cases in the corresponding sections from the left. We have 30 pre-DP student places and 1-3 IB1 places every year.

Application period in Finland is in February/March each year. You can apply to several IB schools but you will be admitted by one school only. Thus, you should consider carefully the alternatives. Tikkurila IB offers Mathmatics at all four levels, Philosophy, and Visual arts in addition to customary sciences and languages. Our average Diploma points have been either very good or excellent nine times out of ten in 2010-2020. Our graduates study at universities like Oxford, Stanford and Karolinska as well as Aalto, Helsinki University and Finnish colleges of applied sciences. Tikkurila IB with its 90 IB students and experienced IB teachers is a nice and friendly little school within a big high school.
