Diploma Programmes

DENISE offers several opportunities for a diploma. At the moment we offer MAVO, HAVO and the IB Diploma Programme.

The MAVO Diploma Programme is a one-year programme that prepares students for HAVO diploma or vocational education.
This programme is taught in Dutch. 

The HAVO Diploma Programma is a two-year programme that prepares for higher vocational education. 
This programme is taught in Dutch. 

The International Baccalaureate provides a challenging, internationally focused, broad and balanced educational experience for students aged 16 to 19. Students are required to study six subjects and a curriculum core concurrently over two years. The programme is designed to equip students with the basic academic skills needed for university study, further education and their chosen profession as well as developing the values and life skills needed to live a fulfilled and purposeful life. Group 12 is the preperational year for the IB-DP. This programme is taught in English. 

The driving force behind the Diploma Programme is a philosophy about the nature of education, which is expressed in the IB’s mission statement, in the IB learner profile and in the fundamental principles on which the curriculum is based and which continue to inspire its development.
