The College Counselling department consists of nine College Counsellors who, together with the Head of University Guidance and College Counselling, work to ensure a smooth school-to-university transition. Each Counsellor is assigned approximately 15 students from each of Grade XI and Grade XII and will oversee their applications from start to finish.

As the students are introduced to the College Counselling programme, insights and unique information from the student’s academic and co-curricular areas of involvement and success provide a platform for students, parents and College Counsellors to work collaboratively to ensure a strong portfolio of university applications is created. This includes building students’ awareness of their priorities and how to assess and evaluate a university’s ethos and characteristics to develop informed and effective decision-making. The portfolio will typically include a range of options, from “dream” to “best fit” universities and colleges from around the globe, depending on the orientation and choices of the student. University success is achievable because our students are confident, articulate, well-taught and enjoy a high reputation for academic achievement. Indeed, their exam results are consistently outstanding year on year.

TISB students receive personalised guidance and benefit from experienced Counsellors with wide-ranging educational and work experience, as well as engagement with the various international college counselling networks world-wide, including an active membership of International ACAC (Association for College Admission Counselling).

A vibrant programme of university visits and visiting academics is well-established at TISB. It includes a diverse range of universities and colleges, allowing students the opportunity to interact directly with the university representatives and to question and explore the wealth of opportunities before them.

“Many of students attend a wide representation of the finest global universities institutions, and many are also rewarded with generous scholarships.  Our experienced and committed College Counsellors take students carefully through every aspect of the applications process and have an impressive, extensive and consistent  track record of success.”

Students are also carefully prepared in school time for the SAT tests in order to maximize the outcome. Many of our students have scored a perfect 800 in the SAT, a result which opens many doors.

“It is safe to say that TISB leaves nothing to chance in preparing students for their future careers.”
