What is different in taking Extended Essay online?

Students will have the opportunity to:
  • study alongside students from around the world.
  • Gain experience of using the latest online learning tools.
  • Regularly communicate with teachers and fellow students.
  • Take part in interactive and engaging lessons that allow them to learn, review and practise easily.

Activities and Asssessment

Each module has clear objectives, activities and opportunities for students to review and reflect on their work. There are no activities to be assessed during the course; instead, a clear programme of supervision aligned to the IB guidelines is set out to ensure that EE remains entirely owned by the student; the student’s own work and their ownership of the process is crucial.

Advice from Our Teachers

In order to succeed in Extended Essay, we recommend students set aside 40 hours throughout the two year course.
