University Counselling

At ISC-Cairo, students are prepared to meet the admissions requirements of the most competitive universities in Europe, the U.K., the U.S., Canada, Germany, the Middle and Far East, and Australia. With the support of our dedicated and highly skilled team of university counselors, we make sure our students have access to their universities of choice.

University counselling begins in Grade 9. The ISC-Cairo counselling team administers general interest surveys and engages students in discussions about their career interests. These discussions lead to more detailed talks about the subjects the students may wish to study at university and the countries in which they want to study. Parents are also involved at this stage. Students are then asked to carry out guided research and discuss their findings with our counsellors.

By Grade 11, students begin to become more precise about their university options. At this stage, our university counselors look into the interests and academic performance of each student, and together with their students agree on a range of suitable universities.

At the beginning of Grade 12, ISC-Cairo students begin to prepare their university applications with the assistance and close guidance of our university counseling staff. In many cases, this is an evolving process informed by each student’s academic progress and carefully monitored by the counselling staff.

Throughout the whole process, ISC-Cairo students and their parents have ready access to members of the counselling team and can request an appointment at any time.

In addition to continuous counselling, the school holds an annual University Fair hosting more than 100 universities from around the word, giving students in grades 9-12 a great opportunity to network with local and international university representatives and get answers to their university-related questions.
