Exploring the wealth of options for further study and professional development beyond school is an exciting time. We offer our students a structured careers and university programme that guides them through the overwhelming range of choices, so that they can be confident in the decisions they make. Whatever a student’s dreams or aspirations are for the future, we provide clear advice on how to make these a reality.
Our team of tutors and guidance experts give students access to a wide range of resources and links to ensure that their choices are based on sound information. We host International University Fairs that allow students to meet with representatives from a number of different universities from across the globe in order to provide them with the opportunity to explore the range of options for further study that are available to them. We also invite pupils to attend the annual local University Fairs that are held at multiple locations in Düsseldorf.
As part of the Careers Programme at the school, students are able to participate in mock interviews as well attend fairs to increase their understanding of vocational career paths. With arranged guest speakers and contact with industry professionals, students acquire insight into a range of careers, thus allowing them to make informed decisions about their future path. Students are encouraged to attend university open days whenever possible and an annual trip to the United Kingdom to visit several universities in London is offered. We also subscribe to an online platform called Bridge-U, which provides students with significant information about universities and careers and helps students understand the options available to them.
We work closely with our Upper School and Sixth Form students to ensure that they are best prepared to take this exciting step into the world. When it comes to applying for university, we work carefully with each student, offering individualised meeting sessions with a Careers advisor in order to facilitate the university application process and to ensure that their application meets the highest possible standards. By working alongside teachers on their post-secondary applications, students are given the opportunity to develop their reflective skills while taking ownership of their future paths.
