Academic Life

University Counselling

At ISF, students are prepared to meet the admissions requirements of the most competitive universities in the U.K., the U.S., Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, the Netherlands, and other top universities across the world. With the support of our dedicated and highly skilled team of university counselors, we make sure our students have access to their universities of choice.

Our team includes five specialist advisors for the U.K., the U.S., South Korea, Japan, and Germany.

Our university counselling begins in Grade 9. The ISF counselling team administers general interest surveys and engages students in discussions about their career interests. These discussions lead to more detailed talks about the subjects the students may wish to study at university and the countries in which they want to study. Parents are also involved at this stage. Students are then asked to carry out guided research and discuss their findings with the appropriate specialist counsellor.

By Grade 11, students begin to become more precise about their university options. At this stage, our university counselors look into the interests and academic performance of each student, and together with their students agree on a range of suitable universities

At the beginning of Grade 12, ISF students begin to prepare their university applications with the assistance and close guidance of our university counseling staff. In many cases, this is an evolving process guided by each student’s academic progress and carefully monitored by the counselling staff.

Throughout the whole process, ISF students and their parents have ready access to members of the counselling team and can request an appointment at any time.
