University Guidance

GSIS is proud to provide students in both Streams with a world class and all-round education, following the German International Abitur and the IB Diploma Programme. Students leaving the school do so with the full support of our University Guidance Team and with our consistently high results and value added education, we celebrate the breadth of destinations that our students take.

In order to support our students’ individual choices, we provide a structured programme to enable them to make the right choices beyond GSIS. Our team’s extensive professional networks and the close relationships fostered with universities around the world help to steer our students in the right direction while achieving their objectives.

Our University Guidance Team is focused firmly on helping students with their academic research, with a clear aim of finding the best fit for the individual. They provide resources and advice to support them as they explore future options and decide their next steps. The team offers individualised support and encouragement to every student and we give them exposure to a wide range of universities.

In addition, GSIS organises:

  • Global university forums and webinars exclusive to GSIS students and their parents which includes an overview of the university, their admission process, the student experience and more
  • Parent Information Sessions covering a wide variety of university and career topics
  • Internships, mentoring programmes, careers guidance and support by drawing on our alumni network and wider community
