University Counselling

CIS graduated its first class of nineteen students in 1994. Since then, it has graduated some 2,000 students and developed a strong record of university placements.

Three professional counsellors assist students in identifying colleges and universities which best match their strengths and interests, and also provide support and advice in completing the necessary applications. A careers counsellor is also available to guide students in their consideration of possible career paths and potentially relevant university programmes.
