Understanding the application system
It is not uncommon for our students to apply to a selection of universities in numerous countries. Popular destinations include anywhere from the UK, US and Canada, to Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. This ideally gives students a number of options when it comes to choosing their university destination, but it also requires them to navigate a variety of application systems for which the requirements and structure may vary significantly between countries.
As well as providing a new challenge to students, the application process is often unfamiliar to families too. The university counsellor plays a key part in guiding students and parents through this. They have experience and knowledge of international application processes and are equipped to steer students through this system, ensuring that they are prepared rather than overwhelmed by the challenge.
