These articles are by no means fully comprehensive; rather they provide some of the most important landmarks on the multi-stage journey that ends with embarking on a career.
The three areas to be covered are:
1. What do I study? What subjects should you choose to study at IB (and later at university) and how are these related to your possible career plans? What factors do you need to bear in mind when making these decisions?
2. Where do I study? Where should you go to study at university? As multi-lingual global citizens you have, almost literally, the world at your fingertips. What are the nature and expectations of studying in different countries and how could these affect your future career plans?
3. How do I select what and where to study? In this section costs will be mentioned as well as the value and significance of university rankings. I will also give some basic indications as to the different processes that you would go through, depending on where you plan to study. Also, in this section I will give a range of links to help you explore all of these areas.
All of these are inter-related and dependent on desires, personal circumstances, aims and ambitions and uniquely individual skills and talents. These areas will have differing importance for each individual and you may wish or need to look at certain areas before others. It is our role to find a ‘best fit’ university and course for your child where all these factors meet all the needs of the child and yourself. Our presentations and meetings are all geared towards that end as, finally and most importantly, your child needs to go to a university where they will be happy and successful - in that order.
