One-to-One Support

The University Guidance Office (UGO) offers career planning guidance and assistance for our students in selecting IB courses as they prepare themselves to attend university in their chosen field and selected country. Our UGO also offers one-to-one college planning support, assisting students in compiling the necessary materials required for university and college applications, and helping them prepare transcripts and reference letters. Our counsellor’s expertise helps keep students and parents informed about the requirements for tertiary studies, the courses and programmes offered in various countries, and application processes.
