The IB Diploma Programme has become an integral part of the school promoting lifelong learning amongst its graduates and disseminating its intrinsic values and ideals throughout the school. A rigorous academic and personal challenge, the programme gives learners the opportunity to develop their skills both inside and outside the classroom. Students are expected to carry out a 4000 word research project in the form of an Extended Essay, to develop their thinking skills through the Theory of Knowledge course and to play a role in the wider community through the Creativity, Activity and Service parts of the programme.

At SKISS, the IB Diploma Programme can trace its roots back to mid-2000s, before being fully incorporated into Sri KDU International School at its founding in 2011. Students have consistently attained an average of 35 points or more and this has led to graduates being accepted into some of the most prestigious universities in the world. The programme continues to expand and in September 2018 new subjects were offered in response to the growing numbers of students.

Sri KDU International School (SKIS) currently offers the challenging IBDP pre-university course which encompasses both the Sciences and Arts, emphasizing critical thinking as well as developing communication and social skills.

Subjects are assessed internally and externally, with the final external assessments usually consisting of two or three timed-written examinations. The IB diploma is awarded to students who obtain at least 24 (highest being 45) points, subject to minimum levels of satisfactory performance across the entire programme. Performance is measured against pre-specified assessment criteria based on the outlined objectives of each subject syllabus.
