This is a similar support package to our very popular ‘Finding Your Future’ but is for students in clasa VIII-IX (aged 14 upwards) but offers up to four years of guidance and counselling.
Its aim is help a student find the right degree subject or subject combination for them to study abroad and then build up their academic strengths, personal skills and (usually) vocational experiences needed for a very successful application to the most appropriate universities.
We start with an initial 2-3 hour private consultation meeting which is based on a simple 5 page questionnaire followed by 2-3 similar meeting each year until the end of clasa XI / Year 12 (for students at international schools) and cover the following topics:
Linking personal interests and hobbies to degree subjects
Identifying academic strengths
Exploring ideas for careers
Advice on choosing GCSE, IB subjects and academic profiles
Action planning for skills development
Guidance on choosing summer programmes and extra curricular activities to strengthen applications
Identifying the potential for Oxford and Cambridge applications
Advice and supports for planning visits to UK universities
Parents can contact their personal consultant for specific advice at any time during this period and we can also help parents explore options for selecting state and private schools in both Romania and the UK.
