YCIS Shanghai has two full-time University and Careers Guidance Counsellors. Their roles are to help students in Years 10-13 review the options for their educational and vocational futures.
The University Guidance Counselling Office offers individual counselling, assists students in compiling the necessary materials required for university and college applications, and preparing transcripts and reference letters. Their 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 application process. Visits by representatives from a wide range of universities and colleges in the US, UK, Australia, Continental Europe, Canada, and elsewhere are arranged throughout the academic year. This gives students and their parents a chance to speak with university representatives about admission to their respective universities. Information Nights and Career Days are frequently organised to better prepare our students for the planning of their future.
