University Guidance & Acceptances
To prepare our students for their journey beyond YCIS Beijing, our University Guidance Office (UGO) offers one-to-one college planning support for students and their families. Through this process, students reflect on their personal strengths and aptitudes and explore the university options which will best suit their needs and interests.
University Guidance Classes
University and career guidance is also interwoven into the curriculum for students in Years 10-13, where our University Guidance Counsellor Jonathan Mellen teaches classes designed to help students to develop their academic skills and passions and learn how to set goals.
University Representative Visits
Visits by representatives from a wide range of universities and colleges from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Europe, Canada, and elsewhere are arranged throughout the academic year. These give students and their parents an opportunity to speak with overseas university representatives about admission, as well as to learn more about university life and their academic programmes.
Fairs and Information Sessions
University fairs, information sessions and career days are also organised to better prepare our students as they plan their future. Our overseas university acceptances are extremely impressive year to year, as our culturally diverse and diligent students continue to achieve outstanding academic results and co-curricular successes.
YCIS Beijing is an approved centre for the College Board PSAT and SAT examinations.
