University Counselling

The Anglophone section helps its students and others of the CSI to make the right choices for higher education by providing a counselling service for students headed to universities outside of France.

Three part-time counsellors, all of whom are Anglophone section teachers, are available for consultation by appointment and we have a resource room supplied with university guides and prospectuses as well as other further education and career material. In addition we have a data bank of information about the futher education of former students, which provides important guidance and contacts.

This overseas university orientation programme is linked to the general service provided by the French career advisors in the school.

The programme is as follows:

2de (equiv. Year 11/ Grade 10)

  • March : Introduction to higher education outside France for parents

1ère (equiv.  Year 12/ Grade 11)

  • September : Introduction to higher education outside France for pupils
  • February : Introduction to the application process
  • March : Careers fair
  • March – July: Group and individual meetings, students complete application dossier

  • January/February:  Applications completed, liaison with universities

Please consult the university counselling wiki site for further information about higher education opportunities outside France, the application process, and the Anglophone programme of university presentations.

Anglophone section student orientation

100% of the students go on to higher education within a year of completing their OIB. The percentage applying to universities outside France has been growing and now over 50% of the cohort make foreign applications, generally to English-speaking universities.

The orientation of our students is diverse in both their destination and in their choice of subjects. All, however, have had the opportunity to enter very good universities of their choice.
