Career and University Guidance
In order to meet the needs of all our students, and guided by our unique educational Vision and Mission, our US High School program offers its students a variety of career and university guidance services and support through its Career and University Guidance (CUG) Office. Our CUG counsellors provide our emerging ‘global citizens’ with a broad and international perspective on their university and career choices, enabling and encouraging them to consider an appropriate range of choices that match their desires, hopes, abilities and future goals.
Our students are at the focus of our guidance and support. Our CUG counsellors, our faculty, our internationally recognized and highly-regarded curriculum and the student’s parents/guardians, together provide our students with a holistic and comprehensive support structure. From Grades 9 to 12, we interact with, guide and support our students through the following activities and/or courses on both an individual and group basis:
- personality and career interest profiling;
- university admissions testing preparation;
- individual university and careers counselling;
- course selection guidance;
- university and college fairs;
- information sessions;
- assistance to students in compiling the necessary materials required for university and college applications;
- preparation of transcripts and reference letters.
Our CUG counsellors’ expertise in the application processes allows them to keep students and parents informed about the requirements for tertiary studies, the courses offered in various countries and the different application processes. Visits by representatives from a wide range of universities and colleges from the USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Continental Europe, Asia and elsewhere are arranged throughout the academic year. These visits not only provide students and parents with a chance to speak with university representatives about admission to their respective universities, but also allow students and parents to gain a better ‘feel’ for the particular university and it’s campus life.
