University Guidance

Entrance to universities worldwide


The University Guidance Counsellor assists students with the university application process and is available to meet with parents and students to explain the process. We can advise on application deadlines, admission requirements and admissions testing. Our staff provide letters of recommendation, references, grade predictions and academic transcripts to support the application process. 

The University Counsellor works in conjunction with the Academic Team thereby ensuring that students’ and parents’ aspirations for University destinations are  understood, are appropriate and regular  guidance is provided

Many of our students at St. George’s International School go on to excellent universities. Our University Guidance Counsellor has formed personal contacts with many of the world’s leading universities allowing for direct communications and rapid information exchange which greatly assists the research of opportunities.

We provide information on a wide range of universities and are regularly visited by University representatives who give presentations to our students. Students have numerous opportunities to meet with admissions representatives and learn more about programmes of study, admission requirements and facilities available at Universities around the world.

St. George’s International School hosts an Annual University Fair on our own campus which hosts over 60 universities each year from across the globe giving our students and their parents the perfect platform to explore opportunities for future study.


Remaining in Switzerland for University Study

Switzerland remains one of the top university choices for our students with 30% of St. George’s students applying to university in Switzerland to continue their studies in 2019.

The Academic Team work closely with the University Counsellor to advise students on subject choices and admission requirements for entry into Universities in Switzerland and beyond.

The University Counsellor arranges for students who are planning to stay in Switzerland for tertiary education to attend information days at Swiss Universities including  École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Université de Lausanne (UNIL) and École Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL).

In addition, the St. George’s Modern Foreign Languages Department assists the students with preparation for language proficiency examinations to meet admission requirements, where necessary.






Year 13 Graduate

Next year, I will be at Franklin University in Lugano, part of the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland. While I look forward to the challenges that await, I look back on two (actually one and two-thirds) wonderful years at St. George's where I was privileged to meet and work with many inspiring and dedicated people. I hope to get the chance to return one day and see how this global community has evolved. Very best wishes!

Year 13 Graduate

I am going to École hôtelière de Lausanne, so I will be just down the road 

Year 13 Graduate

The university that I have decided to go to is called Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU AMSTERDAM) and I will do International Business Administration (IBA) there.

Year 13 Graduate

I am have received offers from University of Edinburgh in the UK and  University of Toronto in Canada to study business. All the academic support at SGIS and boarding family support gave me the opportunities of studying at such amazing universities. I cannot thank enough for all the happy moments that you brought to me. I'm going to miss you so much!!
