The extended essay is one of the most valued elements of the IB Diploma Program.  An independent, self-directed piece of research, which culminates in a 4000 word academic paper, the extended essay provides students with the opportunity to engage in an in-depth study of a topic of interest, but also the practical preparation and development of skills required for research at university and beyond. This informative and interactive session will explore the current provision of the extended essay and the planned revisions to the extended essay.
