University guidance counseling

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) began at KIST in September 2004, with our inaugural Grade 12 class graduating in June 2006. The majority of our senior students have high academic aspirations with dreams of attending universities around the world. Successful completion of the two-year DP opens up a range of possibilities for students in terms of university options. Many universities around the world recognize the DP for its high level concepts that prepare students for university study. For an increasing number of universities, an IB Diploma may in fact be all students will need to gain entrance. It is, however, important to note that each university has its own individual requirements and we recommended that families investigate this early. Our University Guidance Counselors are also available to assist with this. The counselors provide guidance to students and their families related to university entry. This is done individually and also through specific sessions held as part of the MYP and DP Advisory curriculum.

The counselors:

  • Provide advice on universities and colleges around the world.
  • Prepare transcripts.
  • Prepare recommendations for universities and colleges.
  • Coordinate presentations by visiting university representatives.
  • Arrange visits to local universities and colleges.
  • Provide advice on vocational options.

Please contact the school office to make an appointment to meet with our University Guidance Counselors.
