Preparing Students for Life after St. Andrews.
Through personalised support, St. Andrews students are given the opportunity to achieve future success driven by their aspirations. In addition to the structured program at St. Andrews, parents and guardians are an active part of developing students’ aspirations and shaping students’ goals. Parent forums and information sessions are held regularly to keep parents-up-to-date on different university systems, how to prepare and how to help at home.
The university and careers counselling team has experience with supporting student university applications to educational institutions all over the world. The team works with our students and their families to ensure that the course selection is best suited to set each student up for success. The team keeps up-to-date with educational institutions globally and works with university representatives from around the world. Students can begin this process while doing their IGCSE's as they begin to evaluate their options for the future.
Students work with the IBDP Coordinator and the Head of Secondary to prepare their university statements, applications and review the decision making process once a place has been confirmed. Parents are very much involved and the counselling staff have sessions with each student’s family to discuss what needs to be done to ensure getting an acceptance to the university of choice is reached. Students get as much support as they need from our staff, meetings can be scheduled at any time in the school day to discuss any questions the student or parent may have.
